                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TRICORUS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team AMAZON ELITE was 
unseated this week as DARK HORSEMEN moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  MOONDARK caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested WACHICHU and was awarded 18 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MOONDARK put down WACHICHU, 
causing her to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, ATOMIC PUNK has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This 
time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail HELPER, Duelmaster of 
TRICORUS!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TRICORUS.  TRICORUS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is DARK HORSEMEN, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding DARK HORSEMEN.  Indeed it was AMAZON ELITE.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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 Sharp Eyes
