                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DULLENS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  JA-HEE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested STARSINGER and was awarded 24 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GOLDENEYE put down TOXIC 
SLUDGE, causing it to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has ADELITA in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's 
proven hers combat skill yet again.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 
die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city DULLENS.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those 
below.  BLIND OWL take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in DULLENS.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  My hearty congratulations GOLDENEYE, for thy revenge upon TOXIC 
SLUDGE, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time it will know better, eh?  Dark 
alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in DULLENS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, 
and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Hmm, two-three-oh-one, and the Toxic Sludge turned Mist on Grass into a poison gas.
Not good.  True, the groundhog won't see his shadow THIS time, but just because he's
dead.  I don't think that really counts, you know? -- Goldeneye for the Cardow
