                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAL SHANG!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 3-0-0 
record which CASTAWAYS managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record 
will draw challengers!  LINNIS TYL SORN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested OLTIMAL THE LAME and was awarded 20 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SSSKAH put down DILBERT, 
causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Although HARITH TEN 
MORU made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
HARLEQUIN.  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 DAL SHANG.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  LITTLE EARTHQUAKES is feared.  This much I can say.  
Apparently the stalwarts of SERPENTS HOLD are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
