                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ALJAFIR games.  Former top team DUEL REALITY was 
unseated this week as MIDDLE WAY moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 2-3-0 record for the round.  CALEB DOOR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested KHALHUMS DWARF and was awarded 22 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CAPT KIRCHNER put down 
WINFIELD, causing it to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Due to hers 
absence and inability to defend the throne, DAWN has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
The city has turned out in honor of ZOMBIE, for with its arena victory it may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  Informants "close" to the city champion 
have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out! 
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ALJAFIR "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ALJAFIR.  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
