                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of AMEN-TEI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  PONS caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested RUTHLESS JAYWALKER and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TANNA put down PFC 
2, causing him to lose 2 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence 
and inability to defend the throne, JOLLY JERRY has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
The city has turned out in honor of BERLIN, 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 AMEN-TEI seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?  
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city AMEN-TEI.   
     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 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
