                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAL SHANG!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  CITRUS caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested HURL LI and was awarded 10 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, NAMASTE Y'ALL put down KURR 
LI, causing him to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has 
HIGH-END BUN in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week it's 
proven its combat skill yet again.  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.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in DAL SHANG 
these days is SAND DANCERS.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them. 
Apparently the stalwarts of BUMPER WISDOM are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     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!  
     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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
