                                      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 FUNKY FOLK was 
unseated this week as SAY MY NAME moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 3-0-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week THE MIDDLE WAY 4 went 4-1-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 3-0-0 record which SAY MY NAME managed to post 
this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  HUBERT KOMBUN 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested HAPPY 
PEASANT and was awarded 11 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, GASPAR HUELCO put down DEMETRIUS, causing him to lose 7 points of recognition 
in the process.  As is fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards 
this week was none other than Duelmaster ANTONY himself.  This time out FLAT TIRE 
made his bid for the throne as he challenged ANTONY in an all out contest of skill 
for possession of the title!  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  
All hail FLAT TIRE, Duelmaster of LYRATILAN!  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 LYRATILAN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  LYRATILAN, city of gladiators!  Mighty among 
the names of thy guilds is MASTERS OF SIN, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of BASH BROS CARS are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  A match 
that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that SARRIUS posted a 
challenge against the more highly recognized WYANADA ZOAR.  The results, you ask?  
Well, the firebrand SARRIUS was beat by WYANADA ZOAR.  Remember warriors, this is the 
discipline of steel.   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in LYRATILAN 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
