                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of VALAMANTIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  STRIKE 3 caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 
18 points in recognition.  The city has turned out in honor of STREET RACER, for with 
his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Would 
you believe that over half of the old women in VALAMANTIS seem to feel that they 
could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In VALAMANTIS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  FLOYD'S BREWERY is feared.  This much I can 
say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better 
part of last week avoiding FLOYD'S BREWERY.  Indeed it was DIAMONDS IN THE RUFF.  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  LENDIS OHLM take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in VALAMANTIS.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in VALAMANTIS 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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Must be a case of tourney prepping done?  Six total fights, none in the Dark Arena:
the five of us, five standbys, one Diamond (rough, but better than none), one Eagle.
And we went three-two, with one of our wins being over the Diamond.  The Eagle fought
a standby.  Ah, well, it could be worse and probably will. -- Kim Neuw
