                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of STORMCROWE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  RIKKU caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested GLITRINA and was awarded 21 points 
in recognition.  Not for nothing has SAPPHIRA in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city STORMCROWE.  STORMCROWE, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of 
thy guilds is STREET WALKERS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any 
of DARQUE FORCES last week.  Busy avoiding STREET WALKERS?   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in STORMCROWE.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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
