                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KYR'TERR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  AUTOCOCKER caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested SITTING BULL and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MCGREGOR put down 
GHUL, causing him to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence 
and inability to defend the throne, SUGAR HILL GANG has lost the title of Duelmaster. 
This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail RAPUNZEL, Duelmaster of 
KYR'TERR!  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 KYR'TERR.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  RAP ATTACKS 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 DARQUE FORCES V 
last week.  Busy avoiding RAP ATTACKS?   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  I must report the passing of GINSI 
IAGELL, veteran of many duels.  8-11-0 final record Hers was not illustrious--but 
death plays no favorites.  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?  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
