                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ILLIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team ELDER GODS was unseated 
this week as SHEWISH MUNCHIES moved up from 5th 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 SHEWISH MUNCHIES went 3-2-0 to move up 4 in the 
rankings.  RECOVERY SETBACK caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested STONE TEMPLE PILOT and was awarded 24 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, RECOVERY SETBACK put down STONE TEMPLE PILOT, 
causing him to lose 18 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, BAST has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail NAZARETH, Duelmaster of ILLIS!  
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!   
     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.  BASHAHOLICS ANON is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of YOUNG GUNS 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 BABY RUTH.  Watch your back!   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in ILLIS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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
