                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ILLIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  HUMAN PRETZEL caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LEE'S REVENGE and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER put 
down HEATH BAR, causing him to lose 38 points of recognition in the process.  Most 
watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on MOUNTAIN TROLL as he bore arms 
against the Dark Arena Challenge of reigning Duelmaster FLAMING MOE.  Not for nothing 
has FLAMING MOE in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the 
top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     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.  HANGOVERS 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 HANGOVERS.  Indeed it was BASHAHOLICS ANON.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
FISHHOOK.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  FLAMING MOE has sworn to take up religion upon 
living to tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  
Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a 
dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in ILLIS 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
