                                      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.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week MEDAL OF HONOR A11 went 3-2-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  PIRHANA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it 
skillfully bested SERGEANT 2 and was awarded 13 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, PIRHANA put down SERGEANT 2, causing him to lose 9 points 
of recognition in the process.  Although GERHART ERVIN made a valiant effort, it did 
not suffice to topple the reign of victorious KULGAN.  Informants "close" to the city 
champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  
Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  NIGHT WATCH is feared.  This much 
I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of THEM are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the arena 
has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
GOBLIN.  Watch your back!   
     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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
