                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of RODEKI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  TALIB KWELI caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested JURGENHALEN and was awarded 17 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TALIB KWELI put down 
JURGENHALEN, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
COMMON SENSE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious HENDRIX.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in RODEKI seem 
to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city RODEKI.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
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
