                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of VEASTIAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team IS THAT A CLUE? was 
unseated this week as WARRIORS OF STEEL moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 2-2-0 record for the round.  JEREMIAH BROADBLADE caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BAIBAR and was awarded 10 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, JEREMIAH BROADBLADE 
put down BAIBAR, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  
Although BOOT PRINT made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious SAMUEL CLIPPER.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
VEASTIAN seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In VEASTIAN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     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!   
     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 next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
