                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LYRATILAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team THE MIDDLE WAY 4 was 
unseated this week as GOTTA GET A CLUE moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-1-0 record for the round.  BEETLEJUICE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MELONDIE PRINN and was awarded 6 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CANDYMAN put down 
POISON, causing her to lose 2 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
GILGAMESH IDON made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious ROBIN STORZ.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city LYRATILAN.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  THE MIDDLE WAY 4 is feared.  This much I can say.  Methinks 
more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last 
week avoiding THE MIDDLE WAY 4.  Indeed it was FUNKY FOLK.  At the gambling halls I 
have started to bet money on LORRIE DRIVER.  She has got the courage it takes.  
Witness hers challenge this turn against THE HALLWAY!  To be sure the battle was a 
losing one.  But I like to think LORRIE DRIVER at least gave THE HALLWAY a run for 
its money.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in LYRATILAN.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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 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
