                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly LIN TIRIAN games.  KORYLUS VRAE caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested FRATSFA SLAVE and was awarded 
15 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MONSTER MASH put 
down SILVER SLIM, causing him to lose 1 points of recognition in the process.  
Unwilling to wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster CALEAM CHOWDER Dark Arena 
Challenged BLACK ORC last week in a match to decide the fate of the throne.  Not for 
nothing has CALEAM CHOWDER in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and 
this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  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 LIN TIRIAN.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Strange what qualities come forth in the 
face of certain doom.  CALEAM CHOWDER has the town astir with the news of his Dark 
Arena victory!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there 
is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in LIN TIRIAN.  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 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
