                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CLIFFHOME!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  My praise to FIRE DECK for their 
3-0-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  HYLDAI HRENH caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she 
skillfully bested HANS and was awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, HYLDAI HRENH put down HANS, causing him to lose 17 points 
of recognition in the process.  This time out FRANZ made his bid for the throne as he 
challenged UNFORTUNATE RAKE in an all out contest of skill for possession of the 
title!  Although FRANZ made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign 
of victorious UNFORTUNATE RAKE.  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?  Perhaps even the strong cannot escape the vagaries of this world.  
This week arena veteran FRANZ was slain, despite a 11-4-3 record.  This week's duel 
proved deadly to FRANZ as he fell to the more renowned warrior, UNFORTUNATE RAKE.  
How will U.A.K. find revenge?  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!   
     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

The Commission is nuts.  They say that I "tend to focus on parry skills in training." 
If that was TRUE, I'd have a rating in parry, and I don't.  Which just SHOWS. --

MUCH better.  Only two-three for us, but we only fought a single standby.  It was all
REAL.  Well, nearly. -- Mendarlin Voro, for Jinda Ban
