                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ERINIKA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  THOMAS caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WANSTEAD put down 
BIMBO, causing her to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  The city has 
turned out in honor of KARATIA, for with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to 
the highest position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the old women 
in ERINIKA seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ERINIKA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  ERINIKA, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is DRAKE'S TELEVISION, 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 DRAKE'S TELEVISION.  Indeed it was DUDS.   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ERINIKA.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  
The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
