                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAL SHANG!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  I could not but notice the fine 
record for GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS (5-0-1) after their first round of combat.  May the 
gods of war favor you in DAL SHANG!  KO LAO-DEN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CAPTIAN LENSAR and was awarded 22 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MASTER OF THE EDGE 
put down JERI TAVAN, causing her to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  
Although CHURRO THE SPIKE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious BACKLASH.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top 
team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DAL SHANG "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there 
is but one reward--death.  This past week CHURRO THE SPIKE, at 16-26-1, departed DAL 
SHANG forever.  This week's duel proved deadly to CHURRO THE SPIKE as he fell to the 
more renowned warrior, BACKLASH.  How will REFUGEES find revenge?  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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in DAL SHANG.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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
