                                      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 BUSINESS CLASS was 
unseated this week as AL BUMS V moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot with a 
1-0-0 record for the round.  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare 
with MMMP's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 5th place ranking.  
I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of MORE NEW TEAMS 2.  How else weeks 
like this one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 8th team?  The proverbial rising 
comet can only hope to compare with SCIENCE IS FUN's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and 
now a firm grasp on a 13th place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the 
part of THIRSTY GHUGS 1446.  How else weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  How else the 
sudden move to 14th team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with 
THIRSTY THUGS 1466's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 15th place 
ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of LET ME THINK.  How else 
weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 19th team?  The proverbial 
rising comet can only hope to compare with LINGUISTS' team record!  A 1-0-0 week and 
now a firm grasp on a 20th place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the 
part of SIXATE 1.  How else weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 
23rd team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with THIRSTY THUGS 
1301's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 26th place ranking.  I 
have begun to suspect trickery on the part of THIRSTY THUGS 1321.  How else weeks

comet can only hope to compare with SOUP FORCES 2's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and

part of SOUP FORCES 30.  How else weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden 
move to 30th team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with WOS 
BDD's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 34th place ranking.  I 
have begun to suspect trickery on the part of WILD THINGS 2.  How else weeks like 
this one's 1-1-1?  How else the sudden move to 43rd team?  COVEN bore the brunt of 
major assault on their standings this week as they dropped to 68th position as the 
result of going 0-1-0!  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise 
the harder you fall.  This week THIRSTY THUGS 1461 went 0-1-0 and fell 23 notches 
into 69th!  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with THIRSTY THUGS 
1418's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 71st place ranking.  
ABSURD HEROES VIII bore the brunt of major assault on their standings this week as 
they dropped to 72nd position as the result of going 0-1-0!  I have begun to suspect 
trickery on the part of PUB CRAWLERS 5.  How else weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  How 
else the sudden move to 75th team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to 
compare with THIRSTY THUGS 1359's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on

record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 82nd place ranking.  I have begun to 
suspect trickery on the part of SOUP FORCES 91.  How else weeks like this one's 
1-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 83rd team?  My tutors were fond of telling me 
that the higher you rise the harder you fall.  This week WOB AED went 0-1-0 and fell 
17 notches into 84th!  SOME OLD B bore the brunt of major assault on their standings 
this week as they dropped to 86th position as the result of going 0-1-0!  My tutors 
were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the harder you fall.  This week SOUP 
FORCES 87 went 0-1-0 and fell 12 notches into 89th!  N.W.A. bore the brunt of major 
assault on their standings this week as they dropped to 96th position as the result 
of going 0-2-0!  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the 
harder you fall.  This week FEAR FACTORY 15 went 0-4-0 and fell 11 notches into 97th! 
VILGARN WILL caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested PRIMERIDIAN and was awarded 22 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, POOPER SCOOPER put down DIZZY GREED, causing him to lose 10 
points of recognition in the process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the 
spotlight was on MC REN as he bore arms against the challenge of reigning Duelmaster 
INSANITY.  Although MC REN made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious INSANITY.  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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city BLACKSTONE.  BLACKSTONE, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of 
thy guilds is WILD THINGS 2, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels. 
If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of 
SIXATE 1 last week.  Busy avoiding WILD THINGS 2?  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after DAXIL. 
Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Was I the only one shocked to see the well respected fighter 
CLENCHED FIST (5-2-1) appear on the sands of the Dark Arena?  It is now dead.  
LIGHTNING has sworn to take up religion upon living to tell of hers recent bout with 
the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She 
showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember 
this!   
     The girls are as pretty in BLACKSTONE 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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle 
walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--
