                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZUWAYZA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 3-0-0 
record which WALI'S FINEST managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a 
record will draw challengers!  JEWEL caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested TIMES and was awarded 12 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, RED LAKE put down FLIGHT JOURNAL, causing 
him to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has WHITE 
CHOCOATE in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's 
proven hers combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in ZUWAYZA seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  JAGUAR WARRIORS 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 TEAM CHAOS last week.  Busy avoiding JAGUAR WARRIORS?  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  BLOOD SPORTS take warning!  You have 
more than a few enemies in ZUWAYZA.  Give SOLSTICE credit for hers courage.  Did you 
note how she challenged BLOOD SPORTS despite the 26 point difference in their 
rankings?  5 points of newly earned recognition and a dose of my admiration is what 
SOLSTICE must now weigh against the defeat which resulted.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  I must report the passing of TIPPY, 
veteran of many duels.  11-9-0 final record Hers was not illustrious--but death plays 
no favorites.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but 
sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in ZUWAYZA as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Jakrapong -- Thought I might be able to sneak one by, your defense was superb! -- 18k

Times -- Devastation can be a tough thing. -- Red Lake

All -- This will be my last turn, I will return right after the fall mailer with two
(hopefully) warriors that will fill out my team.  I like fighting in this arena but
with a full team, see ya soon. -- The Sierras

Matarse Fury -- You are unquestionably a splendid racer, Hot Rod says it and he would
know.  But are you sure you are ready for... Blood Sports?

Noachian -- The progress of Blood Sports boggles me.  How does he do it?  I have no
clue. -- Jorja

Tippy -- I don't know what kind of sportsman you are, but if you keep "tipping over"
like that, sooner or later you're going to crash.  I don't think I could bear to
watch.  As the Great Sage said:  Thou shalt maintain thy flying speed, lest the
ground reach up and smite thee. -- Flight Journal

Solstice -- If you're planning some kind of celebration, think of advertising it with
me.  I can double or even triple your attendance. -- Nifty Nickel
P.S.  Of course, timing is important, and it's a long way to the next solstice.
Better wait on the ads.  People forget.

A Captured Orc?  Well, I suppose I could put him to work cleaning the stables.  It's
a dirty job, but somebody has to do it, after all. -- Hot Rod

Red Lake -- Hmm.  I think I will NOT recommend you for a vacation hostess.  You
aren't at all restful. -- Times

Hideki Hao -- Alas, you will be missed. -- the Magnificent Mags

Flavius Valerius -- You can't go by what Zontani does or doesn't say.  He hates
everybody and lacks a reporter's true objectivity, besides. -- Times

Hideki Hao -- Noachian is unreasonable and unjust. -- Blood Sports
