                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARDIVENT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  GOLDEN FURY caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DEBRA COLLIN and was awarded 
12 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GOLDEN FURY put 
down DEBRA COLLIN, causing her to lose 5 points of recognition in the process.  
Although SOLARIS made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious ECLIPSE.  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ARDIVENT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     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 ARDIVENT.  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

Vecordius -- Gosh.  I didn't think I knew that much!  Wow.  I guess I'm better than I
thought, huh? -- Debra Collin

Golden Fury -- You need to watch that temper, kid.  Sure, it serves you well now,
against an old lump like me, but what if you meet someone who can fake you out and
keep going? -- Flint Hills

Break Point -- One of the things we admire about you is the way you hang in and keep
on turning up.  And a winning record is nothing to sneeze at, either. -- Becker
Collin

I know what that Guard's Ambitious about, and he won't get it.  No way. -- Mermy
Collin

I wouldn't trust that scribe an INCH.  Not even HALF an inch. -- Lori Collin

Break Point -- Um, a person who can't be counted on to lose? -- Debbie Collin
