                                      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 OUTER GODS was 
unseated this week as ZOMBIE SQUADS moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-1-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week ZOMBIE SQUADS went 3-1-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  BINKY caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it 
skillfully bested ANCHOVY JR and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, PINEAPPLE put down MOTHER OF PUS, causing her to lose 10 
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 HAUGHA RYDE himself. 
Who here was not present for the title fight this week as JOCK-IN-THE-BOX boldly 
challenged HAUGHA RYDE in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail JOCK-IN-THE-BOX, Duelmaster of 
KYR'TERR!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in KYR'TERR seem to feel 
that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     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.  ZOMBIE SQUADS is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of OUTER GODS 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.  This week marked the last days of ZOMBIE 
who at 6-7-0 was dispatched to the Dark Arena by the command of ZOMBIE SQUADS' 
demanding management.  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?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
