                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JHANS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  NOAH caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested A-4 and was awarded 16 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, RIRORNI SPY put down BUNCH OF 
BULLETS, causing him to lose 18 points of recognition in the process.  The city has 
turned out in honor of ETHER, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the 
highest position in the city!  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JHANS "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this 
week's challenge seeking began.  SERPENTS HOLD is feared.  This much I can say.  If 
you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of 
DEVIATION last week.  Busy avoiding SERPENTS HOLD?  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after GORAN 
KOBLINZ.  Watch your back!  I can not but mention with disdain the name of FEELING 
MINNESOTA who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 10 points below in the 
rankings.  I thought FEELING MINNESOTA showed great skill and promise when he 
overcame GORAN KOBLINZ.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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?  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

Huh.  There it is, I'm supposed to go to the Isle.  Why?  Somebody's probably running
low on experimental subjects.  I hear they practice on gladiators at the Stronghold
Academy, you know.  I don't know any OTHER reason why I should graduate.  Sure, okay,
sixty fights, plenty of political points through being default duelmaster.  But I
have NO ratings, no stat trains, nothing SPECIAL, you know?  And, really, we had an
improved turn this time, three-two, and I don't want to leave! -- Chester Grell
