                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JURINE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record 
which MIDDLE WAY 16 managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record 
will draw challengers!  GAMMA CEPHEI caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested DODO FERRIS and was awarded 17 points in 
recognition.  Although SERGEANT 4 made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple 
the reign of victorious JENNI KORREG.  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 JURINE "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in JURINE these days is CANINE CUISINE.  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 MEDAL OF HONOR G10 last week.  Busy avoiding CANINE CUISINE?  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  WILLI ZANE take warning!  You have 
more than a few enemies in JURINE.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of 
WOK THE DOG who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 12 points below in 
the rankings.  I thought WOK THE DOG showed great skill and promise when he lost to 
HANDY ILSONDER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of 
certain doom.  ROVERWURST has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory! 
Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in JURINE as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
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

P.S.  Got some Choates in this neighborhood.  They claim that an ancestor was once
told to "Speak for yourself, John."  Don't know if he did.

Wok the Dog -- Depends on what kind of fire you have.  Woks don't work well on flat
