                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZORPUNT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team WRESTLING was 
unseated this week as DISASTER moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
1-1-0 record for the round.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which KRILL 
CAVALRY managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw 
challengers!  VINEGAR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she 
skillfully bested DARRON POOLE and was awarded 12 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, MODESTA STONE put down JELLO, causing him to lose 6 
points of recognition in the process.  Although OLIVE OIL made a valiant effort, it 
did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious PLATE SHIFT.  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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ZORPUNT.  ZORPUNT, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is KRILL CAVALRY, 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 KRILL CAVALRY.  Indeed it was DISASTER.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 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

guy, too.  Bleh. -- Modesta Stone

Jello -- I like jello, mostly, if it's the right flavor.  But I don't like to PLAY
with it.  My momma always told me not to play with my food. -- Darron Poole

Vinegar -- I'm surprised your team isn't called Condiments or something. -- Korine
Race

Okay, the Persistent Beggar was easy, which I liked.  But he didn't TEACH me
anything.  I don't like that! -- Donny Poole
