                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SHADOWSPIRE games.  Fortune did not smile upon BIG 
LAKE OUTCASTS this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 17th position in the 
wake of a 0-5-0 round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner! 
Witness how this week ME CUT YOUR HEAD went 4-1-0 to move up 8 in the rankings.  Did 
only my eyes note the 3-0-0 record which LITERATE LOONS managed to post this round?  
I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  A new guild, WICKED MARTYRS, 
entered SHADOWSPIRE with a clash this turn, showing off a 4-1-0 record.  Indeed, a 
worthy addition to the city guilds.  PRAWN STAR caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, NIGE FISHNUT put 
down COMA PATROL, causing it to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  
Unwilling to wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster SANTA CLAUS challenged STORM 
GIANT last week in a match to decide the fate of the throne.  This time victory fell 
to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail STORM GIANT, Duelmaster of SHADOWSPIRE!  Heed 
this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city 
shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     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.  FURRY FURY is feared.  This much I 
can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of LA PENTARCHIE last week.  Busy avoiding FURRY FURY?  Loose talk at the arena 
has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
COMA PATROL.  Watch your back!  For some warriors honor is not important--only empty 
victory.  See, gladiators, how AGORIX of WARMASTERS challenged down 38 points to 
GORSHOK.  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as GORSHOK was subdued 
by AGORIX.  Is this what passes for courage in SHADOWSPIRE?  Give EYE OF THE DEEP 
credit for his courage.  Did you note how he challenged LADY ORIEL despite the 30 
point difference in their rankings?  The MONSTER MANUAL stable will be up late 
tonight, for indeed it was EYE OF THE DEEP who claimed victory in the contest, 
ascending 31 in recognition!  At the gambling halls I have started to bet money on 
BRINDLE BADGER.  He has got the courage it takes.  Witness his challenge this turn 
against VILMAR!  I must admit to some joy.  Before my very eyes the underdog in this 
contest, BRINDLE BADGER, defeated VILMAR to claim victory and recognition.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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 SHADOWSPIRE.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer 
can I keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

"PAGAN Cometh."

Maiminodes -- I thought you had me there!  Good thing your style's weapons, combined
with my con, allowed me to pull one out of the rabbits hat! -- Beordin

     After all, who wants rabbits in a hat?  They're too restless.

Visionist -- Your young ones have found a very nice winning streak! -- DeGotti

There goes one more team that doesn't pay attention!  See ya, Food!  Thanks for the
wins over the last year!  Maybe Sherman will get his act together and pay attention
again? -- DeGotti

Mordraith -- Doahhhhh! -- Vanek, Manager of Warmasters

Grimm -- Yeah, but they seem to be dying as fast as I can make them.  Let's see if
the gladiatorial commission gives me something other than a 3 or 4 CN and low WL
warrior on my next 2 RUs. -- Vanek

Otto -- What do you have against 3 CN Striker's?  Geez!  :) -- Vanek

     They're picky eaters?
