                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZENSU!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  There were bitter words at POP GOES DA 
80'S' guildhouse after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 8th.  
Dark Arena anyone?  IGOR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested CRUSHING AXE and was awarded 24 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, IGOR put down CRUSHING AXE, causing him to lose 19 
points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has NIGHTMARE GARCIA in the 
past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat 
skill yet again.  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZENSU "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  ZENSU, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names 
of thy guilds is RANDOM, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Apparently the stalwarts of GRIZZLED VETERANS are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  WARRIOR EIGHT take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in ZENSU.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 ZENSU.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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
