                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DULLENS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SKYFIRE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TOODLES ENRAGED! and was awarded 
11 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TEDDY BEAR OF 
DEATH put down LAME OX, causing him to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  
Although BLIND OWL made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious FRANKIE.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city DULLENS.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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 next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Worse and worse!  Again six fights, Frankie against the Paragon Orca, us against the
standbys.  But THIS time, we went two-three against those pestilential standbys!
We'd be embarrassed, but what's the point?  Who'd know?  It isn't like anyone here is
paying attention to US, including our manager.  Drat. -- Blind Owl
