                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of FRATSFA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team SITTEES was unseated 
this week as FIRE INC. moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 2-3-0 
record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon MORE' GOTH this time out who this 
turn suffered a fall into 9th position in the wake of a 0-0-0 round.  Did only my 
eyes note the 4-1-1 record which AARDVARK HAMMERZ managed to post this round?  I 
don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  FIRE WALL caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TEMPEST and was awarded 
23 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, FIRE WALL put 
down TEMPEST, causing him to lose 18 points of recognition in the process.  Due to 
hers absence and inability to defend the throne, SHY ANN has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail BOB LE 
CANADIEN, Duelmaster of FRATSFA!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told 
me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In FRATSFA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in FRATSFA these days is FIRE INC..  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of FLOWER GIRLS are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in FRATSFA.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a 
turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its 
prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
