                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CHIMLEVTAL!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  There were bitter words at CAESAR'S 
POOL HALL's guildhouse after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 
10th.  Dark Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week FAMINE went 2-0-0 to move up 7 in the rankings.  Did 
only my eyes note the 5-0-1 record which WAR managed to post this round?  I don't 
doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, HUNGER put down SIGURD, causing him to lose 18 points of recognition in the 
process.  Although CHOLERA made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious BEDLAM.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team 
has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     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 CHIMLEVTAL these days is LORDS OF VALHALLA.  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 LORDS OF VALHALLA.  Indeed it 
was THE ANIMALS.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  
DIRDEN I take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in CHIMLEVTAL.  For some 
warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how DIRDEN I 
of LORDS OF VALHALLA challenged down 16 points to EAGLE.  All the city knows the duel 
went in favor of DIRDEN I.  I shall not fail to spread the word in other cities of 
this "mighty" victory.  INFLUENZA must really be harboring a grudge against the LORDS 
OF VALHALLA guild!  Merciless, 30 challenged down WULFGAR points this week to duel 
with he.  An upset indeed!  INFLUENZA found heself outmatched as him was subdued by 
WULFGAR.  There is no place left further down for INFLUENZA but the burial mound!  A 
match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that ULL 
HELMSPLITTER posted a challenge against the more highly recognized SLOCUM.  The 
results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand ULL HELMSPLITTER beat SLOCUM.  Remember 
warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For 
mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week SHELBY, at 8-6-0, departed 
CHIMLEVTAL forever.  I must report the passing of ATLANTA, veteran of many duels.  
12-15-0 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  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 CHIMLEVTAL.  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 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

     "Was it not the great philosopher and mathematician Leibnitz who said that the
     more knowledge advances the more it becomes possible to condense it into little
     books?  Now this "Outline of Science" is certainly not a little book, and yet it
     illustrates part of the meaning of Leibnitz's wise saying.  For here within
     reasonable compass there is a library of little books--an outline of many
     sciences." -- Professor J. Arthur Thomson from _The Outline of Science,
     Volume 1_
