                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KYR'TERR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team WESTERN FRONTIER was 
unseated this week as DOGS OF WAR moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 3-2-1 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon WESTERN FRONTIER this time 
out who this turn suffered a fall into 6th position in the wake of a 0-0-0 round.  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
SUPERIOR FORCES ZC went 0-0-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes note 
the 4-1-0 record which THE ZOO managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a 
record will draw challengers!  FAIZUN GOTE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested MESSY MONGREL and was awarded 19 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WITCH put down BROWN EYED 
SUSAN, causing her to lose 1 points of recognition in the process.  As is fitting, 
the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none other than 
Duelmaster PUPPY ON PATROL himself.  This time out EYE OF THE NEEDLE made his bid for 
the throne as he challenged PUPPY ON PATROL in an all out contest of skill for 
possession of the title!  The city has turned out in honor of EYE OF THE NEEDLE, for 
with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  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.  KYR'TERR, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is DOGS OF WAR, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding DOGS OF WAR.  Indeed it was HAZAARDS 
OF CLONING.   
     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!  
     The girls are as pretty in KYR'TERR as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

Brown Eyed Susan -- Ah, you know my weakness, don't you, heartless woman?  I couldn't
bring myself to strike a small and shapely woman.  Never could I do that.  It's been
a curse all through my gladiatorial career. -- Benito Chatte
P.S.  Go and, please!, challenge no more.

Tryptophan -- They actually let you loose?  Amazing, I haven't seen you in the aisles
for years!  Great.  Gotta love it. -- Faizun Gote
P.S.  And five skills, too.  This is generosity above and beyond the call of
anything.
P.P.S.  Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

Santa Fe -- It's probably the altitude.  Or maybe all the fiesta-type stuff going on
right now distracting you. -- Dorine Eagel
P.S.  Although...it could be the beans.  Nasty things, beans.

Danny Heatley -- Ah, maybe I should get a day job like that, too.  Would I have to
move, or could I telecommute? -- Kully Lamm

Napoleon -- What is it with this "dogs of war" thing?  This is not the only team of
that name.  Is war a pack of ratty curs from the alleys of the sinkholes of
civilization?  Hmm, actually, I could believe that. -- Halda Impola

Our congratulations to Puppy on Patrol. -- The Zoo
