                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZENSU!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-1 record 
which BOTCHED & BUNGLED managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record 
will draw challengers!  KYLROI caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as it skillfully bested RALPH NEPPEL and was awarded 26 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, KYLROI put down RALPH NEPPEL, causing him to 
lose 30 points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of 
EBBUTT MARSH, 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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ZENSU.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in ZENSU these 
days is BEYOND THE PALE.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of 
GRIZZLED VETERANS last week.  Busy avoiding BEYOND THE PALE?  Loose talk at the arena 
has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
EBBUTT MARSH.  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  
     The girls are as pretty in ZENSU as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

Even worse!  One-four with two losses to standbys.  Neither practice nor prayer
helps.  I suppose we COULD resort to magical intervention, there are some magicians
here who claim to be able to help in such matters.  But I have never heard that magic

helps in the long run.  Always a backlash of some kind, you know.  The natural laws
don't like being bent, and they snap back a LOT HARDER than the original problem.
So... no to the magical offers.  Damn. -- Ebbutt Marsh
