                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CLIFFHOME games.  My praise to JINDA-BAN for their 
4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  CONNIE PAKKIT caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she 
skillfully bested ALONZO and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, DANGEROUS CRIMINAL put down LEONARDO, causing him to lose 
14 points of recognition in the process.  Although VETERAN MERCENARY made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious SCROD BOY.  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In CLIFFHOME "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in CLIFFHOME these days is JINDA-BAN.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of BOY O'S 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 CARTER PILLAR.  Watch your back!   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in CLIFFHOME.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  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
