                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of VALAMANTIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team ZOMBIE SQUAD was 
unseated this week as MIDDLE WAY 10 moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week DISASTERS went 3-1-1 to move up 3 in the rankings. 
HURRICANE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested PERSISTENT BEGGAR and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, THE BIG 'OH' put down JIMMY LOW, causing him to lose 15 
points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the 
throne, MOOSEHEAD has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the 
grasp of the usurper.  All hail KOLBERT MOON, Duelmaster of VALAMANTIS!  Heed this!  
A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall 
perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     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
