                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team SUMMERTEETH 
was unseated this week as THE SEWING CIRCLE moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  KARINIRINA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested CONVICTED ASSASSIN and was awarded 
13 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BRAIN BUSTER put 
down 2LIVE CROUTON, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Due 
to his absence and inability to defend the throne, MULCHER has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail HULL 
SCRUBBER, 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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  NIATOLI ISLAND, city of 
gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy guilds is UGA COLLEGE RADIO, a guild 
shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of BAD 
BREAD are catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large 
share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below. 
KIELANDOR VENANSINDE take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in NIATOLI 
ISLAND.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  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.--
