                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARADI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  BEERZILLA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested HOFFA and was awarded 18 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE put down 
DAISY DAWG, causing her to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  As is 
fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none 
other than Duelmaster TICK ... TOCK himself.  Who here was not present for the title 
fight this week as PAM'EHLA ANDERSON boldly challenged TICK ... TOCK in order to 
strive for the Duelmasters honors?  The city has turned out in honor of PAM'EHLA 
ANDERSON, for with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to the highest position 
in the city!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never 
fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ARADI "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
ARADI these days is THE MOTHERSHIP AH.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of INGRATE WHITE NORTH last week.  Busy avoiding THE MOTHERSHIP AH?   
     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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle 
walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--
