                                      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 KIWI CONNECTIONS was 
unseated this week as THE ZOO moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week RAP ATTACKS went 1-0-0 to move up 9 in the rankings.  
My praise to THE ZOO for their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully 
fought round deserving of notice!  HOT SPOT caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested KHALHUMS DWARF and was awarded 15 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ERNIE GUUL put down 
ABSOLUTELY DEVOID, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Not 
for nothing has PANAMA OATS in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and 
this week she's proven hers 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!   
     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 CITY-STATE CT, 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 CITY-STATE CT.  Indeed it was RAP 
ATTACKS.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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
