                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KATI-TEI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SERGEANT 5 caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested WINGS IN SUNLIGHT and was awarded 
24 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SERGEANT 5 put 
down WINGS IN SUNLIGHT, causing her to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  
This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail FLYING PIG, Duelmaster 
of KATI-TEI!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in KATI-TEI seem to 
feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In KATI-TEI "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  WANDERERS is feared.  This much I can say.  If 
you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of HELL 
FROZEN OVER last week.  Busy avoiding WANDERERS?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  DUSTY MILLER take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in KATI-TEI.   
     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!  
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
