                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of BLACKSTONE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team PASSPORT REQUIRED 
was unseated this week as SMITH SMACK moved up from 0th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-0-1 record for the round.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of 
AFTER ASPARAGUS....  How else weeks like this one's 1-0-1?  How else the sudden move 
to 3rd team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with GENUS GENIUS' 
team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 6th place ranking.  I have begun 
to suspect trickery on the part of 060310AV.  How else weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  
How else the sudden move to 9th team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to 
compare with TOP OF THE LINE's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 
11th place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of 
PHILANTHROPISTS13.  How else weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden move 
to 13th team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with 
PHILANTHROPISTS39's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 14th place 
ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of MISISTERS OF DEFENSE.  How 
else weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 16th team?  My tutors 
were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the harder you fall.  This week 
PHILANTHROPISTS42 went 0-1-0 and fell 15 notches into 17th!  The proverbial rising 
comet can only hope to compare with OTTODROME 12's team record!  A 2-0-0 week and now 
a firm grasp on a 18th place ranking.  060310BH bore the brunt of major assault on 
their standings this week as they dropped to 43rd position as the result of going 
0-1-0!  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of PHILANTHROPISTS17.  How else 
weeks like this one's 0-1-0?  How else the sudden move to 46th team?  The proverbial 
rising comet can only hope to compare with FORMER BOSSES' team record!  A 0-1-0 week 
and now a firm grasp on a 49th place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on 
the part of PROBLEM CAUSERS.  How else weeks like this one's 0-1-0?  How else the 
sudden move to 50th team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with 
060310AD's team record!  A 0-1-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 53rd place ranking.  
PRISONER 485 caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested HUGH KASSLE and was awarded 28 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, WYM WILDLEAF put down WYRD, causing him to lose 17 points of 
recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All 
hail D?S? OPEN?, Duelmaster of BLACKSTONE!  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 BLACKSTONE.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
BLACKSTONE these days is SATAN'S KINGDOM.  At least, most blades in town are looking 
to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent 
the better part of last week avoiding SATAN'S KINGDOM.  Indeed it was FORMER BOSSES.  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after PRISONER 485.  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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 next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
