                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Hail and well met warriors of STORM ROCK!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  1977 AMC MATADOR caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LUPUS MAJOR and was 
awarded 39 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 1977 AMC 
MATADOR put down LUPUS MAJOR, causing him to lose 34 points of recognition in the 
process.  Not for nothing has MOIST TOWELETTE in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week it's proven its combat skill yet again.  Would you 
believe that over half of the old women in STORM ROCK seem to feel that they could 
fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In STORM ROCK "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  MID EARTH is feared.  This much I can say.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding MID EARTH.  Indeed it was NOMADIC TRIBE.  At the gambling halls 
I have started to bet money on GAD.  He has got the courage it takes.  Witness his 
challenge this turn against FOUR OF SPADES!  Truth to tell, GAD did not come out of 
the fight a winner, but he managed to capture much attention, gaining 1 in 
recognition.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems 
that VIRGINIA, NO SANTA posted a challenge against the more highly recognized ALMOST 
PRETTY.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand VIRGINIA, NO SANTA was beat by 
ALMOST PRETTY.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     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!  
     The girls are as pretty in STORM ROCK as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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
