                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LAPUR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Fortune did not smile upon CLAN CROW this 
time out who this turn suffered a fall into 6th position in the wake of a 1-2-0 
round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week CARDOW HUNTERS went 3-2-0 to move up 3 in the rankings.  SANDSTORM caught 
the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING 
SCRIBE and was awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, PERILOUS QUINN put down HAMBONE, causing it to lose 12 points of recognition 
in the process.  Not for nothing has CALYPSO in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers 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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city LAPUR.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  TREKKERS 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 TREKKERS.  Indeed it was CLAN CROW.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my 
ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after ENIGMA.  Watch 
your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  My condolences to BLACK SAMURAI for their loss of a very promising 
warrior, REMOKA.  REMOKA went to doom before the arms of JAYLA, a warrior of 
SHADOWMIST.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is 
sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in LAPUR.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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

P.S.  I didn't used to think of myself as such a winter person, but there's some kind
of strange magic in this whole arena business, and especially in the magic of names.
I've heard of one guy who was stuck with the arena name of Treefrog, and now he's
getting webbed feet and starting to sleep in trees!
