                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly MORDANT games.  My praise to PITCH PERFECT for their 
4-1-3 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  SHARPER IMAGE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it 
skillfully bested HUGE HEIGHTS and was awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, PANASONIC put down VLAD THE INTERN, causing him to 
lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has AFFLUENZA in the 
past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat 
skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in MORDANT 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.  MORDANT, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is RUN DMC, 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 PITCH PERFECT last week.  Busy avoiding RUN DMC?  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  SOULCYCLIST take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in MORDANT.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  SUSAN POWTER has sworn to take up religion upon 
living to tell of hers recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed! 
Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  GEORGE FOREMAN has 
the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  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 MORDANT.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, the census form has been eliminated, effective immediately.  Managers may 
register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by simply writing them on a 
separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  Each warrior may have 
up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, 
Victory and may be up to 70 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the 
Gladiatorial Commission.
