                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JURINE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  WOK THE DOG caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TOAD MOB and was awarded 18 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WOK THE DOG put down TOAD MOB, 
causing him to lose 14 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 
SYBO herself.  Who here was not present for the title fight this week as RACK OF LAB 
boldly challenged SYBO in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  Not for 
nothing has SYBO in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that 
the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?  
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in JURINE these days is TREXTRAS.  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 ERRATA last week.  Busy avoiding TREXTRAS?  As a gladiator 
gets older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of his heart.  True, CLYDE CHOATE?  Who 
could miss your "brave" challenge of HANDY ILSONDER?  All the city knows the duel 
went in favor of CLYDE CHOATE.  I shall not fail to spread the word in other cities 
of this "mighty" victory.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of SERGEANT 1 
who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 12 points below in the rankings. 
I thought SERGEANT 1 showed great skill and promise when he overcame DODO FERRIS.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in JURINE.  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:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
