                                      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 HOYT FOUNDATION was 
unseated this week as TRIBE moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-0-0 record for the round.  SERGEANT 1 caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested LADYBUG LEE and was awarded 19 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SERGEANT 1 put down LADYBUG 
LEE, causing her to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Although CLAY 
POOLE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious ILL 
SUBLIMINAL.  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 ZORPUNT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some guilds are strict but few are as heartless as MEDAL OF HONOR 
Z3.  Witness, last turn they sent SERGEANT 6, a 8-2-0 fighter, to the Dark Arena!  
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!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Three-two, with the new kid drawing a standby.  Fair enough.  And no deaths.  They're
such a nuisance.  We have to go kidnap people in allies to get replacements, and you
can imagine their qualities. -- Pony Stone
P.S.  No personal Personals today, because we're being hounded and harried by the,
well, hounds and harriers, you know, of Time and Obligation.  Bummer, but there it
is.
