                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KOLACT games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week THE MENTORS went 2-2-0 to move up 5 
in the rankings.  HJALMAR FOLKVAR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested PERSISTENT BEGGAR and was awarded 15 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HANS SMA KRIGER put down GOD 
MC, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned 
out in honor of VALITA, for with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to the 
highest position in the city!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me 
that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In KOLACT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  KOLACT, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is MEDAL OF HONOR, 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 EMPIRE last week.  Busy avoiding MEDAL OF HONOR?  Loose talk at the arena 
has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
HANS SMA KRIGER.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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.--
