                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of VEASTIAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  There were bitter words at AMERKIN 
INJUNS' guildhouse after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 6th. 
Dark Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week GREENISLE GUARD went 1-0-0 to move up 3 in the rankings.  
SHADOW FROGGY caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested LOLITA MARIA and was awarded 26 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, ARDESKIN put down MARTINE, causing her to lose 7 points of 
recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All 
hail LYRICAL DRUGGIST, Duelmaster of VEASTIAN!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if 
exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 
7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  EPIC RAP is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of GREENISLE GUARD are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the 
arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are 
after ZILLA KHIRNAJ.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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
