                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARADI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  HORNET caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CHILMAN ELSE and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HORNET put down 
CHILMAN ELSE, causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  The city 
has turned out in honor of HORNET, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to 
the highest position in the city!  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.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ARADI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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
