                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ROCANIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team MEN OF STEEL was 
unseated this week as MIDDLE WAY 20 moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  REMBRANDT caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested PERSISTENT BEGGAR and was awarded 11 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GASTON IPPS put down 
MEECHAM, causing him to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has KASPAR in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his 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 ROCANIS.   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in ROCANIS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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
