                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LIN TIRIAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team MEDAL OF HONOR Z2 
was unseated this week as SAND DANCERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  GENTLE BORIS caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CONVICTED THIEF and was awarded 13 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LUCREZIA BARON put 
down GALLOWS, causing him to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  The city 
has turned out in honor of ABJURER, for with hers arena victory she may now lay claim 
to the highest position in the city!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the 
top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  ANN NASTY take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in LIN TIRIAN.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it 
seems that HOLLOWPOINT posted a challenge against the more highly recognized ANN 
NASTY.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand HOLLOWPOINT was overcame by ANN 
NASTY.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I can not but mention 
with disdain the name of VEILED POISON who this week posted a challenge to a warrior 
a full 11 points below in the rankings.  I thought VEILED POISON showed great skill 
and promise when she bested THE WEEPER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal! 
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  GALLOWS must hold silent, for this week 
he was humbled in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by LUCREZIA BARON of SAND 
DANCERS.  Hail LUCREZIA BARON for thy victory!  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!   
     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!  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

Whew!  Seven dead, not six.  The city will probably survive.  We certainly didn't
mind losing Mondwren for that good cause.

Three-two and a death, and only ONE of the wins was over a standby.  Good cess. --
Silver Slim

Hollowpoint -- You need to fill it with something interesting.  Strychnine, maybe. --
Ann Nasty

Gallows -- How cruel and Andorian that would be!  Better the headsman as we have here
in a civilized country. -- Ghost of Mondwren
P.S.  Considering where your blow landed, death is preferable to a maimed survival.

Okay, he's a standby, damned straight I defeated him.  Would YOU want to come to
grapples with a Venomous Concubine who happens to be a male orc?  It's enough to make
me swear off... almost anything.  Ugh. -- Silver Slim

And a Sergeant defeated, a Sergeant victorious.  So it goes. -- Lucrezia Baron
P.S.  You do NOT want the Weeper writing a personal.  Trust me on that.
