                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly MORDANT games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week TIP OFF went 1-0-0 to move up 3 in 
the rankings.  My praise to UPSTARTS for their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it 
was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  RUBE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested JMJ and was awarded 18 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MADAME TIGER put down JACK OF 
SHADOWS, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  The city has 
turned out in honor of ROCK RHYMES, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim 
to the highest position in the city!  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 MORDANT.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in MORDANT 
these days is RUN DMC.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  If 
you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of COLORFUL 
last week.  Busy avoiding RUN DMC?  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and 
it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after JMJ.  Watch your back!  
Give UG LEE credit for his courage.  Did you note how he challenged THE SAUCE despite 
the 26 point difference in their rankings?  I must admit to some joy.  Before my very 
eyes the underdog in this contest, UG LEE, defeated THE SAUCE to claim victory and 
recognition.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Let all swords of the city take heed!  By law, COLORFUL has but one 
remaining week to take their revenge upon SCHOOLBUS DRIVER for the slaying of GEORGIA 
PEACH.  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 MORDANT 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

Jollie -- You waited a long time for your first fight.  I did my best to make it
worth it.  Extra time spent on makeup.  Bedazzled my armor.  All for you!  I'm
thoughtful, like that. -- Love Pink

Madame Tiger -- First I get destroyed in the spy report for my down challenge.  Then
you don't teach me any skills.  I may need to hire a PR firm to repair my reputation.
-- Jack of Shadows

Supply Depot -- Welcome to Mordant!  Hope you plan to stay... -- Living Colour, Mgr
Colorful (a wholly owned subsidiary of Trump Gladiatorial Enterprises)

Buster Marne -- Don't kid yourself, fool.  Jorja would never do non-essential
recruiting.  For *us*, yes, because we're THE TEAM here.  For you, ha! -- Schoolbus
Driver

Two-three, disgusting.  That MELON lost on an easy fight if *I* ever saw one.  *I*
think we should carve him up for breakfast, but apparently this is currently
impractical.  To which I say, we should not wait too long, you know how fast melons
go bad once they pass their prime. -- Schoolbus Driver
P.S.  And the Low Roaders went one-one.  That idiot Buster lost, and I foresee that
the team shall fall into a pit of mediocrity.  Took them too long to reach this
point.
