                                      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 WITCHERS was 
unseated this week as WEIRD STUDENTS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week TOLBIN'S GEMS went 2-3-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 record which POSSE managed to post this 
round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  NAVARONE caught the 
eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CHAEGO TEN SELAH 
and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
VESEMIR put down KARANZA THE WILD, causing her to lose 14 points of recognition in 
the process.  The city has turned out in honor of DERRINGER, for with his arena 
victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe 
that over half of the old women in DAL SHANG seem to feel that they could fight 
better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  TOLBIN'S GEMS 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 LAUGH TRACK LORDS last week.  Busy avoiding TOLBIN'S GEMS?  At the 
gambling halls I have started to bet money on MESSY MATT.  He has got the courage it 
takes.  Witness his TV challenge this turn against KO THE AVERAGE!  Truth to tell, 
MESSY MATT did not come out of the fight a winner, but he managed to capture much 
attention, gaining 2 in recognition.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Turn 600!  Numerologically, this may be significant.  Of course, here at the Sand 
Dancers, numbers aren't really our thing.

Ah, a standby!  An excellent way to start this fight-day.  Maybe the win will 
establish a trend. -- Karanza the Wild

Citrine -- If I'd realized the fight was going to run eight minutes, I'd've gotten 
more sleep last night.  "Thrashing wildly" with such a low offensive effort, I'm 
embarrassed. -- Norben, very much the Lesser

Yes, alright, I did lose to a standby.  Sue me.  Sweet Anella always puts me off.  
The simpering expression, the ruffles on the armor, the... hairy legs and five-o'
clock shadow.  It's all WRONG. -- An Yee

Yes, well, I did defeat MY standby. -- Chaego ten Selah

If I'm average, what does that say about the standby who lost to me? -- Ko the Average

Our congratulations to Lady Luck. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers
