                                      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 TMM KNOCKOFFS was 
unseated this week as SOUL WARRIORS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon TMM KNOCKOFFS this 
time out who this turn suffered a fall into 5th position in the wake of a 0-2-0 
round.  I could not but notice the fine record for DRAGONS CLAW (4-1-0) after their 
first round of combat.  May the gods of war favor you in CLIFFHOME!  TOBLERONE caught 
the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested CAPTAIN JUNKIE 
and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
TOBLERONE put down CAPTAIN JUNKIE, causing her to lose 13 points of recognition in 
the process.  Not for nothing has INCEST in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's 
throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  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 CLIFFHOME "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  CLIFFHOME, city of gladiators!  Mighty among 
the names of thy guilds is SOUL WARRIORS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of UNLIKELY HEROES last week.  Busy avoiding SOUL WARRIORS?  Loose talk at 
the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after PENELOPE.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
