                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JURINE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  DELLEA ERAMIN caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested PETER DAVISON and was awarded 23 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DELLEA ERAMIN put 
down PETER DAVISON, causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  
Although VONNER WESS made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious DONNA.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in JURINE seem 
to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city JURINE.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  MIDDLE WAY 16 is feared.  This much I can say.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of ERRATA last 
week.  Busy avoiding MIDDLE WAY 16?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition 
from those below.  WALLIS YENT take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in 
JURINE.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a 
rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani
