                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DULLENS games.  MAMMOTH EARS caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested WEST WOOD and was awarded 24 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MAMMOTH EARS put 
down WEST WOOD, causing him to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  This 
time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail JUST A GUY, Duelmaster of 
DULLENS!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in DULLENS 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.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in DULLENS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Three-two, but no kills this time.  I wondered if we might have another, since Ears
fought Snuffy again.  What he's got against that poor little cat--

It's a golem, not a real cat.  I like real things, okay? -- Mammoth Ears

Whatever.  I just don't like the way it sounds when you batter that Kittycat--

It's a GOLEM.  Which ALSO means there was no chance of eating it.  How about if you
just DROP the subject? -- Mammoth Ears

All RIGHT, okay, enough!  Can I finish this personal?  It was just going to be one
short personal, and look what's happened!  Cheese louise!  We went three-two-oh, and
that's IT. -- Just A Guy

Sleeping cold makes him cranky, but he just couldn't stand a LITTLE smoke from the
hyper-cost.... -- Sugar Bull
