                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUKAL games.  Former top team SPROUT OF IT was 
unseated this week as FROM THE 80'S moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-0-0 record for the round.  WUSTHOF caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THE USEROUS MERCHANT and was awarded 
16 points in recognition.  Although SISTER BEAR made a valiant effort, it did not 
suffice to topple the reign of victorious MARTY MCFLY.  No confirmation, but my 
sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in ZUKAL these days is SPROUT OF IT.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of FROM THE 80'S are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  This week marked the last days of KIND OF MAGIC who at 11-9-0 was 
dispatched to the Dark Arena by the command of QUEEN's demanding management.  SEAS OF 
RHYE has sworn to take up religion upon living to tell of his recent bout with the 
Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in ZUKAL 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
