                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of STORMCROWE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  ERMINE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested BENEZIA and was awarded 23 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ERMINE put down BENEZIA, 
causing her to lose 19 points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out 
in honor of ROSELYN, for with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
STORMCROWE 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 STORMCROWE.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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
