                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of VALAMANTIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Take note that STRIKER FORCE has 
lost its top team spot, having missed the turn.  Where are you boys?  Did only my 
eyes note the 4-1-0 record which MIDDLE WAY 10 managed to post this round?  I don't 
doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  HUEY caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested HOBO and was awarded 10 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HUEY put down HOBO, causing 
him to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the 
grasp of the usurper.  All hail LUDWIG MILT, Duelmaster of VALAMANTIS!  Informants 
"close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on 
beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after HUEY.  
Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, 
and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

More fights, more standbys, and we went one-four.  With, alas, two of those losses
being to standbys!  Embarrassing.  *I* lost, too, but at least it was a REAL loss.
Not like, for example, Quin, losing to a Captured Orc!  How gormless can he get? --
