                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of VALAMANTIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  KOLBERT MOON caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested VETERAN MERCENARY and was 
awarded 12 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, VENOMOUS 
CONCUBINE put down NEEVAN POVAR, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the 
process.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, and 
IMROM LLEWS has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With IMROM LLEWS clearing the 
throne, MIDDLE WAY 10 of KOLBERT MOON takes a proud seat as VALAMANTIS' new 
Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition points.  No confirmation, but my sources claim 
that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons 
perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city VALAMANTIS.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

I was going to do a proper duelmaster's column for you, and then I took a closer look
at our fights today.  We went four-one against standbys (Kolbert dropped the ball
with the Veteran Mercenary, the dummy).  That doesn't leave us much to say in the way
of regular personals, so, instead, you've got this from me AS a personal, since Jorja
gets so INTENSE about personals.  Somebody fight us next time. -- Imrom Llews,
Duelmaster
