                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARADI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team WEIRD STUDENTS was 
unseated this week as THE ELITE moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
2-3-1 record for the round.  MS. VIKTORIA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested PERSISTENT BEGGAR and was awarded 12 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WARFOUR put down SMOKING 
GRETCHEN, causing her to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, PREEIRA has lost the title of Duelmaster. 
This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail LADY AKSANA, Duelmaster 
of ARADI!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in ARADI seem to feel 
that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ARADI "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
