                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LIN TIRIAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  DOLLY PARTON caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested ANONYMOUS and was awarded 23 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DIXIE BUBBLES put 
down RAINDROPS, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has TRAIN RAIL in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the 
old women in LIN TIRIAN seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in LIN TIRIAN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
