                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TALCAMA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team CENTER FOR OLDS was 
unseated this week as THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 2-3-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always 
around the corner!  Witness how this week ARDUIN GRIMOIRE went 1-0-0 to move up 3 in 
the rankings.  DELION caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested FIZZ AND FURS and was awarded 30 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, DELION put down FIZZ AND FURS, causing her to lose 22 
points of recognition in the process.  Although ANONYMISSUS made a valiant effort, it 
did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious BIG PIMPIN' IMP.  No confirmation, 
but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TALCAMA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  TALCAMA, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is OF WOLF AND MAN II, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of CENTER FOR OLDS are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  BOATSWAIN take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in TALCAMA.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at 
the games this week, it seems that THE CODDLER posted a challenge against the more 
highly recognized BOATSWAIN.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand THE CODDLER 
was beat by BOATSWAIN.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I can 
not but mention with disdain the name of KRUSK who this week posted a TV challenge to 
a warrior a full 8 points below in the rankings.  I thought KRUSK showed great skill 
and promise when he bested BLACK WIGHT.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal! 
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Look no more for BUTCHER in the arena or 
on the streets of TALCAMA.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for 
one at 12-5-0.  Some guilds are strict but few are as heartless as OF WOLF AND MAN 
II.  Witness, last turn they sent BUTCHER, a 12-5-0 fighter, to the Dark Arena!  Dark 
alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in TALCAMA as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

Errata -- Unfortunately Crisis will not be able to fight until after the Jan F2F.  He
is sitting on 20FE and I unfortunately won't be able to stay for your bloodfeud.  He
