                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TOBIR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  I could not but notice the fine record for 
ZOMBIE SQUAD (4-0-0) after their first round of combat.  May the gods of war favor 
you in TOBIR!  FAITH caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, LUG NUT put down FILIBUSTER, causing him to 
lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Who here was not present for the title 
fight this week as HOCK boldly challenged FANTASSIN in order to strive for the 
Duelmasters honors?  The city has turned out in honor of HOCK, for with his arena 
victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  No confirmation, 
but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  FILIBUSTER take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in TOBIR.  For some warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  
See, gladiators, how VLAD THE IMPALER of THE DEATH SQUAD challenged down 17 points to 
FEIGN.  All the city knows the duel went in favor of VLAD THE IMPALER.  I shall not 
fail to spread the word in other cities of this "mighty" victory.  A match that 
raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that TIMMY posted a challenge 
against the more highly recognized LASSO.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand 
TIMMY beat LASSO.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in TOBIR.  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 next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission.
