                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly VEASTIAN games.  I could not but notice the fine 
record for MEDAL OF HONOR F1 (5-0-0) after their first round of combat.  May the gods 
of war favor you in VEASTIAN!  SOLDIER 3 caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 15 points in 
recognition.  Although CONVICTED ASSASSIN made a valiant effort, it did not suffice 
to topple the reign of victorious NORILTENNE.  Would you believe that over half of 
the old women in VEASTIAN seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in VEASTIAN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, 
and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
