                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUWAYZA games.  TRAVEL WEEKLY caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested SNAKE PLISSKEN and was 
awarded 14 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TRAVEL 
WEEKLY put down SNAKE PLISSKEN, causing him to lose 7 points of recognition in the 
process.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to CONVICTED ASSASSIN, BUT HAMMER 
REVIEW is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ZUWAYZA.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  JOURNEY is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently the 
stalwarts of MAN OR BEAST? are catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging 
board for their large share of the avoids.   
     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!   
     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 next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a 
rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani

Three-two, and four of our opponents were standbys.  Embarrassing, although losing to
the Dangerous Criminal is not as, um, shameful as losing to a Beggar or a Thief.  I
suppose the absence of managed competition has something to do with the tourney now
being past? -- Hammer Review
