                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly AMEN-TEI games.  Former top team CAR AND DRIVER was 
unseated this week as WAYFARERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-1-0 record for the round.  AVALANCH LILY caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested DERWEAR and was awarded 30 points in recognition. 
In one of the week's more notable duels, AVALANCH LILY put down DERWEAR, causing him 
to lose 33 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, SPEEDWAY has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned 
out in honor of AVALANCH LILY, for with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to 
the highest position in the city!  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 AMEN-TEI.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in AMEN-TEI 
these days is WAYFARERS.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding WAYFARERS.  Indeed it was SUPERIOR FORCES 5405.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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!   
     The girls are as pretty in AMEN-TEI 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

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
