                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAL SHANG!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  WARLAR caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested GORBAN TEN SKORA and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WARLAR put down 
GORBAN TEN SKORA, causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Who 
here was not present for the title fight this week as IRONIC TWIST boldly challenged 
LINDIS TYL SARRO in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  This time victory 
fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail IRONIC TWIST, Duelmaster of DAL SHANG!  
No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position 
using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     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.  THE INQUISITION is feared.  This much I can say.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of THE 
MOTHERSHIP CE last week.  Busy avoiding THE INQUISITION?  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after KALDAN 
TEN KARAN.  Watch your back!  I cannot but express pride for the fearlessness of NAS 
who cast caution to the winds and challenged KALDAN TEN KARAN, a fighter 26 points 
higher.  Truth to tell, NAS did not come out of the fight a winner, but he managed to 
capture much attention, gaining 3 in recognition.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  My hearty congratulations ROXY MUSIC, 
for thy revenge upon DDP, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know 
better, eh?  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!   
     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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
