                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARUAK CITY games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week SOOSIANS went 3-2-1 to move up 4 in 
the rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 record which BULLDOGS managed to post 
this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  LEO GUARDSMAN 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested GREEN 
HORN and was awarded 25 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, CUD put down NASTY ELEMENTAL, causing him to lose 19 points of recognition in 
the process.  Due to its absence and inability to defend the throne, FAWNY KITAEN has 
lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of LILAC LEMUR, for 
with hers arena victory she 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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  WEIRD STUDENTS 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 WEIRD STUDENTS.  Indeed it was AARDVARK & CO..  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  TOUCAN SAM take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in ARUAK CITY.  I cannot but express pride 
for the fearlessness of KYRIA who cast caution to the winds and challenged WOODSY 
OWL, a fighter 26 points higher.  2 points of newly earned recognition and a dose of 
my admiration is what KYRIA must now weigh against the defeat which resulted.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there 
is but one reward--death.  This past week KYRIA, at 9-14-0, departed ARUAK CITY 
forever.  Perhaps even the strong cannot escape the vagaries of this world.  This 
week arena veteran NORMALROACH was slain, despite a 10-3-2 record.  This week's duel 
proved deadly to KYRIA as she fell to the more renowned warrior, WOODSY OWL.  How 
will SCORPIONS find revenge?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable 
with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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

Scorpio, Cerebus, anybody, want a piece of White Worm? ("Cerebus -- What's the deal 
with White Worm killing two of your warriors like that?  Need me to sick my boys (and 
girls) on him?  Just say the word. -- Scorpio *eyeing White Worm*") 

Get it now as he will, presuming you don't kill him, be "out" for a while as he is 
prepped for the FTF. -- The Animal Farm Publicist
P.S. Scorpio, you and Gorgore are wrong. WW aimed for RA, but G's big head must have 
gotten in the way.

Yo, ho, ho! Luv me critters! Aye. Got me yon 3-0. Ho, ho, ho! Blimey luv 'em all! -- 
Mino

Failing Frank, gotcha! Like the name. It fits. -- Blue Burro

Callamytie, thanks again for a challenge. You are so good to me. -- Lilac Lemur

Suenteus Po, I was sooooo Lucky. Beating an ardvaark is big time for me! -- Navy 
Narwhale

Ahoy, PPE! Me critters gotcha agin. Aye. (Big belly laugh.) -- Mino

Congrats to Fawny Kitaen, again, as Duelmaster of Aruak City. Kudos also on your 
promotion to The Isle. Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, 
proprietor

Gorgore, just chewin' the cud and havin' me a fine old time. -- Cud

Duck Rogers, thanks for searching with me. Sorry I wore you out. -- Search Dog

Cerebus, here's hoping your new recruits are winners! -- Kennelworth

Health. Humility. Honor. -- Kennelworth
P.S. Hoping to see some of you in Newark at the Face this summer.

Comin' back! Despite that Commission and all its flunkies! I am! 3-1 for an almost 
perfect round - perfect, just like me. -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Mino, I hate you! -- PPE

We Colorifics are quite proud of our 3-1 round, especially since The Commission and 
all its following teams in Aruak are out to get us. WE ARE ... COLORIFIC! -- Missy, 
Agent, Promoter, Publicist, PPE Assistant and Proud Colorific

Rumblegut, now you know why your gut is rumbling. -- Black Plague, Proud Colorific

Fawny Kitaen, you cheater! You missed the litter box and puked in my boot! I hate 
cats! -- Greenhorn, Proud Colorific

Twiceler, it only took onceler for me to show you who is boss. -- Pink Eye, Proud 
Colorific

Bear, welcome to Aruak City! Bwahahahaha! -- Yellow Belly, Proud Colorific

Purple People Eater -- It's true that you had some unfair match-ups. Though Opus might 
be a little short of a million FE...  Anyway, experience is something that counts. If 
you are up with the big boys and have only 6 fights, you earned it, for sure, but you 
also have to deal with the fact that likely everyone around you has an enormous 
experience difference. You point is still well taken and I wish you well. -- Scrooge 
McDuck, manager of Flagrant Fowl

These 2-3 turns are just killing me. Ugh. Well, at least we have a bit of turnover in 
the stable for Flagrant Fowl...maybe somebody will shape up and have a record that is 
far better than just a fight or two from .500...-- Scrooge McDuck

Hi Everyone.  Don't get too excited.  I'm just here for a turn or two checking things 
out.  Nice to see Cerebus back.  Unfortunately my finances are tight so I do what I 
have to.  Keep it real. -- Dartor

Charlyndyr -- Thanks, losing all the time gets depressing. *high 5* -- Toytles

Cud -- Well done. -- Gorgore

Lilac Lemur -- You're just too fast for me.  Dangit! *smiles wryly and bows* -- 
Callamytie

The Thorax -- See darlin', that's houw you trounce someone without gettin' sloppy. 
*winks*  See ya 'round. -- Miss Fortune

Black Plague -- Bah!  Looks like plagues are too much for my hungry belly. -- 
Rumblegut

S. Po -- Mmhmm, mayhaps I bit off a lil' more than I was quite ready for at the 
moment.  See ya 'round sweetie. -- Miss Fortune

Navy Narwhale -- I'm beginning to hate your style...every time I get matched up 
against one of you, I get smooshed. -- S. Po

Forsaken Fred -- I... I actually WON a fight?  Thanks for backing down when you did. 
-- Jaka

Yellow Belly -- Ow.  Big and smart too... nice skills.  Congrats. -- Bear

"That beggar was sure persistant...didn't know when to back off." -- Overheard from 
Astoria after the fight.

Underdog -- Thanks... I do my bestest. -- Normalroach

Miss Fortune -- I look forward to our next entanglement... I'll dance with ya anytime, 
darlin'. -- S. Po

Scorpio -- You are welcome to go after White Worm for me if you want.... I gave up on 
him.  I have no one let who can take him on except maybe Normalroach, but he is the 
best I've got left and he doesn't want to take the risk.  Good luck! -- Cerebus

Scorpio -- That's a tough one... My first reaction to the question was to come up with 
one thing that fit all three descriptions:  "kids, today' (lazy bums, who play video 
games all day and leech off their parents - except the 'third' doesn't seem to apply 
so much)... so since it is a group of three, not one thing that fits all three, I am 
going to guess... a stove, fire and smoke?  I guess no one else besides me love 
riddles...in the dark or otherwise...(LotR reference there for anyone who didn't get 
it).
