                                      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 THE DEATH SQUAD was 
unseated this week as THE DOGHOUSE moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  My praise to WU-TANG FOREVER for their 3-1-0 week 
this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  BIG 
DUMB SLOB caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested WINDY and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, ODB put down MAID, causing her to lose 11 points of recognition in the 
process.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, and 
BROWN WIDOW has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With BROWN WIDOW clearing the 
throne, THE DEATH SQUAD of MAN MOUNTAIN takes a proud seat as TOBIR's new Duelmaster, 
by virtue of recognition points.  Would you believe that over half of the old women 
in TOBIR seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TOBIR.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in TOBIR these 
days is THE DEATH SQUAD.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of 
WU-TANG FOREVER last week.  Busy avoiding THE DEATH SQUAD?  Loose talk at the arena 
has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
MAID.  Watch your back!  I can not but mention with disdain the name of MAN MOUNTAIN 
who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 8 points below in the rankings.  
I thought MAN MOUNTAIN showed great skill and promise when he won victory over 
FEATHERS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  My hearty congratulations WU-REVOLUTION, for thy revenge upon 
GHOSTFACE, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The 
wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Three-two.  Okay, we can go with three-two.  Especially since I got to lay the Big
Drippy Tongue on Kiss of Death.  Humans just can't do it.  Of course, they tell me
that a cow is "even more so," but who'd want to be kissed by a cow? -- Big Red, for
