                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  KURELLEU ZIEN caught the eye 
of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and 
was awarded 14 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
WARTLESS WITCH put down TAVELSHAN KETHAL, causing him to lose 10 points of 
recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All 
hail VIN DIESEL, Duelmaster of NIATOLI ISLAND!  Informants "close" to the city 
champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  
Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In NIATOLI ISLAND "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  NIATOLI ISLAND, city of gladiators!  Mighty 
among the names of thy guilds is SEA DOGS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent 
the better part of last week avoiding SEA DOGS.  Indeed it was HALLOWIENERS.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 NIATOLI ISLAND as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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
