                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of VALAMANTIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  PISCES caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested CONVICTED THIEF and was awarded 14 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, VENUS put down 
NEOSHA PALMER, causing her to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has STRIKE 3 in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to the city champion have 
told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city VALAMANTIS.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
VALAMANTIS these days is STRIKER FORCE.  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 FACERS last week.  Busy avoiding STRIKER FORCE?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

As a team, we had NO point movement, up OR down?  How wimpy of us!  One-four for us
today, which is not stellar.  Y'all probably noticed that.  But nobody DIED, so it's
all good. -- Oder Quin

We salute the tourney participants, with an extra nod for that faceless cipher, 5,
tourney victor. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way
