                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAYLA KIV!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week THE FUNKENSTEINS went 1-0-0 to move 
up 3 in the rankings.  BRIDGE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as it skillfully bested SHAMELESS BEGGAR and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, GREELO DUFFUS put down ERNEST R. KOUMA, 
causing him to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  Due to hers absence and 
inability to defend the throne, BOOMER has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail TAX MAIL-IN, Duelmaster of DAYLA 
KIV!  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.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  MOB BOSSES is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of I HATE TOURNEYS are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  GREELO DUFFUS take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in DAYLA KIV.  I can not but mention with disdain the 
name of FTF who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 10 points below in 
the rankings.  I thought FTF showed great skill and promise when it defeated KORBIN 
TEN BARAN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some guilds are strict but few are as heartless as MEDAL OF HONOR.  
Witness, last turn they sent SERGEANT 3, a 2-0-1 fighter, to the Dark Arena!  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 we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
