                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TOBIR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team ZOMBIE SQUAD was unseated 
this week as THE DEATH SQUAD moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-0 record for the round.  TACO HELL caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested HARRY MUTT and was awarded 16 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, JILES put down FEIGN, causing 
him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling to wait upon the will 
of others, Duelmaster FAITH challenged DOGGO last week in a match to decide the fate 
of the throne.  Although DOGGO made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple 
the reign of victorious FAITH.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
TOBIR seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TOBIR "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this 
week's challenge seeking began.  THE DEATH SQUAD is feared.  This much I can say.  If 
you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of B.B. 
FAST FOOD last week.  Busy avoiding THE DEATH SQUAD?  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  DOGGO take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in TOBIR.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way 
he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!  
     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 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
