                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KATI-TEI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team LAZY SUNDAY was 
unseated this week as WANDERERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-2-0 record for the round.  YELLOW BRICK TOAD caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DOUBLE TRUE and was awarded 17 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, YELLOW BRICK TOAD put down 
DOUBLE TRUE, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail FLYING PIG, Duelmaster of 
KATI-TEI!  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 KATI-TEI these days is WANDERERS.  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 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.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in KATI-TEI.  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

Three-two, not bad for us these days.  We'll take it, anyway.  Especially with snow
falling AGAIN.  I don't know why that makes a difference, but it just does.  We
salute the Sergeants, and Lazy Sunday (an alien concept here, but one we'd like to
know better), and then head back for our guildhouse to resume hibernation. -- Dusty
