                                      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 THE MOTHERSHIP CE 
was unseated this week as SAND DANCERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  My praise to SAND DANCERS for their 4-1-0 week 
this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  KURLO 
TEN DOSHAN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested SWEET ANELLA and was awarded 11 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, TURK-Y MONSTER put down KALDAN TEN KARAN, causing him to lose 2 
points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the 
throne, IRONIC TWIST has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in 
honor of LINDIS TYL SARRO, 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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DAL SHANG "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  
The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
