                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ROCANIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  JIMMY THE HAND caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested SERGEANT 3 and was 
awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DROXINE 
put down DENNA FEYL, causing her to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  
Although MEECHAM made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious GERHART ERVIN.  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 ROCANIS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ROCANIS.  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 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

Hmm, only two fights today not involving standbys.  Less than impressive, but at
least the standbys weren't WINNING.  We, meaning the Middle Way, went four-one, which
always brings a little thrill, even if they WERE mostly wins over standbys.  I took
the title on a win, too.  So there. -- Gerhart Ervin
P.S.  Morningstar, high/low.  Could be worse, I guess.  I'm a morning person, after
all.
