                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZORPUNT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  CANTIL caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 21 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MORIT KOBUN put down 
CAPTAIN BONES, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has EARTH QUAKE in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if 
exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 
7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZORPUNT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  ZORPUNT, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is MEDAL OF HONOR Z3, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent 
the better part of last week avoiding MEDAL OF HONOR Z3.  Indeed it was DISASTER.  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  MORTIS THE FORSAKEN 
take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in ZORPUNT.   
     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 ZORPUNT 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
