                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of IAYE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team STEEL BLADES was unseated 
this week as LENPROS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 4-1-1 
record for the round.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-2 record which ANGRY BEES 
managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  
STEALTH caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested 
LITTLE ROSIE and was awarded 24 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, STEALTH put down LITTLE ROSIE, causing her to lose 20 points of 
recognition in the process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was 
on HIGH ELF as he bore arms against the Dark Arena Challenge of reigning Duelmaster 
SENATOR WILEY.  Although HIGH ELF made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple 
the reign of victorious SENATOR WILEY.  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!   
     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 IAYE these days is HER BEST ASSETS.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding HER BEST ASSETS.  Indeed it was 
LENPROS.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the 
knowledge that many fighters are after STRIPE.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  SENATOR WILEY has sworn to take up religion upon 
living to tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  
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 IAYE.  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are 
angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
