                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LIN TIRIAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  HOLLOWPOINT caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was 
awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SERGEANT 
4 put down SILVER SLIM, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  
Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, ROSS F. GRAY has lost the 
title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail 
SERGEANT 4, Duelmaster of LIN TIRIAN!  Informants "close" to the city champion have 
told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city LIN TIRIAN.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Sorry, I'm running really short of time today.  (What else is new?  But even shorter
today.)  So no personals from me.  I'll try to do better next time, but no promises,
the new definition of "normal" is a lot busier than the old one.  Or else I'm slowing
down... nah, it couldn't be that! -- Jorja
