                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JHANS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  There were bitter words at DEVIATION's 
guildhouse after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 8th.  Dark 
Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness 
how this week DYNASTY WARRIORS went 2-2-0 to move up 6 in the rankings.  REBUILD 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TAISHI 
CI and was awarded 10 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, CAO CAO put down SKIRN, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the 
process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, KERN has lost the 
title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail 
WHISKERS, Duelmaster of JHANS!  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 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.  FUR YOUR EYES ONLY is feared.  This much I can say.  
Apparently the stalwarts of 5440 OR FIGHT! are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after ENVY 
HIDIN' SNAKE.  Watch your back!  As a gladiator gets older, the icy grip of fear lays 
hold of hers heart.  True, WHISKERS?  Who could miss your "brave" challenge of 
SPATHIC?  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as SPATHIC was overcame 
by WHISKERS.  Is this what passes for courage in JHANS?  For some warriors honor is 
not important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how MASUIMI MANX of FUR YOUR 
EYES ONLY challenged down 17 points to ENVY HIDIN' SNAKE.  All the city knows the 
duel went in favor of MASUIMI MANX.  I shall not fail to spread the word in other 
cities of this "mighty" victory.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in JHANS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
