                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CLIFFHOME!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team EAGLES CLAW was 
unseated this week as JINDA-BAN moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-2-0 record for the round.  KOVORLIN SIRRO caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested PERSISTENT BEGGAR and was awarded 11 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER put 
down NILISMARIN SALM, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  
Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, EAGLE'S CLAW has lost the 
title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of NORVANDARRO KREN, 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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city CLIFFHOME.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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 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
