                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZUWAYZA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team BUBBA'S CLAM SHACK 
was unseated this week as VISIONS V2 moved up from 4th 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 VISIONS V2 went 2-3-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  My praise to MAN OR BEAST? for their 3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it 
was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  NEWT ROCKNE caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BUZZ GRIMHULT and was 
awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, FLAMBERGE 
put down MODERN PHRENOLOGY, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the 
process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, GRAVITRON has lost 
the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of DOTTLE, for with his 
arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Would you 
believe that over half of the old women in ZUWAYZA 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 ZUWAYZA.  ZUWAYZA, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is MAN OR BEAST?, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  If 
you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of BUBBA'S 
CLAM SHACK last week.  Busy avoiding MAN OR BEAST??  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after HOUSE 
BEAUTIFUL.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this 
week, it seems that EAT IT RAW posted a challenge against the more highly recognized 
WALTER PIDGEON.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand EAT IT RAW was bested by 
WALTER PIDGEON.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 ZUWAYZA 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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
