                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAL SHANG!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team BASH BROS EVANGELIST 
was unseated this week as SAND DANCERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  KORDAL T'ROHN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LENDO TEN CHARDIN and was awarded 8 
points in recognition.  Although LINNIS TYL SORN made a valiant effort, it did not 
suffice to topple the reign of victorious SASHA.  No confirmation, but my sources 
claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed 
weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  KURLO TEN DOSHAN take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in DAL SHANG.  ON THE CORNER must really be harboring a grudge against 
the SAND DANCERS guild!  Merciless, 24 challenged down KURLO TEN DOSHAN points this 
week to duel with he.  All the city knows the duel went in favor of ON THE CORNER.  I 
shall not fail to spread the word in other cities of this "mighty" victory.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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

Sasha -- I really don't like it when people "devastate" me.  Couldn't you just defeat
me soundly? -- Garno ten Koro

At least the standbys know how to lose.  They're even better at it than we are. --

Yes, but we teach better. -- Linnis tyl Sorn

I don't CARE about the skills, I just want the wins. -- Maran ten Palan
