                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ILLIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Fortune did not smile upon AXE ILLIS 
HAMMERZ this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 11th position in the wake of 
a 0-0-0 round.  CHURCH OF RISING SUN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested SCRAWNY GEORGE and was awarded 19 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LONG ISLAND put down (C)EE 
(J)AY, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has SOUL SCOURGE in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
she's proven hers 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 ILLIS.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  BASHAHOLICS ANON is feared.  This much I can say.  Methinks 
more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last 
week avoiding BASHAHOLICS ANON.  Indeed it was CHAPEL ROCK.  Loose talk at the arena 
has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
DUFF.  Watch your back!  I cannot but express pride for the fearlessness of NAZARETH 
who cast caution to the winds and challenged DUFF, a fighter 33 points higher.  I 
must admit to some joy.  Before my very eyes the underdog in this contest, NAZARETH, 
defeated DUFF to claim victory and recognition.   
     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!   
     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:  a fool flies into a 
rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani 
Sharp Eyes
