                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZENSU!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team EXOTIC TASTES was unseated 
this week as PHILANTHROPISTS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-0-0 record for the round.  CRAZY TRAIN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested O. POSTE and was awarded 9 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, PARANOID put down DELLIS LINZ, causing her 
to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, GRILLED GRIZZLY has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has 
turned out in honor of CRAZY TRAIN, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim 
to the highest position in the city!  Informants "close" to the city champion have 
told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in ZENSU these days is EXOTIC TASTES.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding EXOTIC TASTES.  Indeed it was 
PHILANTHROPISTS.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ZENSU.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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

whole arena. -- O. Poste, drizzling too
