                                      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 BOHICA this 
time out who this turn suffered a fall into 8th position in the wake of a 0-0-0 
round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week CLAN CROW went 2-1-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  YEZURA caught the eye 
of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested AMBITIOUS GUARD and 
was awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
RAVAGE put down JAYLA, causing her to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  
Although DEADLY ASSASSIN made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious THE WHITE RABBIT.  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in LAPUR seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in LAPUR these days is THE TAKEN.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of CLAN CROW are catching the bulk 
of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose 
talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many 
fighters are after ENIGMA.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

be going on ta retirement for the rest o' his days.  He finished 17(2)-17(3)-10-9(3)-
19(2)-9-17(4) with an expert in parry.  He be so stupid he only learned 19 skills in
his career.  Though he did make it back from the ol' dark arena.  He favored the LG
and low\mod o\a. -- Owsly (glad ta be done with the lad)

One-four.  No wonder we put off writing this personal.  Well, "we"--that really means
just me.  As the sole winner on this team today, I "get" (like it's a privilege?
Cheese louise!) to write The Personal.  So...

To those we fought -- Good fight. -- We who fought you
P.S.  Another day, when things aren't so hasslesome, we might go into more detail.
Sorry.
