                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZORPUNT games.  THE SHRIEKER caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested WARM BATH and was awarded 25 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CUTTER CRITES put 
down VIBRANT THING, causing him to lose 19 points of recognition in the process.  
This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail ILL SUBLIMINAL, 
Duelmaster of ZORPUNT!  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 ZORPUNT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     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.-- 
Zontani Sharp Eyes

So much for trying That Swing!  Dark Arena for that unfortunate.

One-four, with that CHUMP losing to a MORDANT DESERTER!  The shame!  He may never
live it down. -- Pearl Stone

Ill Subliminal -- To be honest, I was not looking forward to it, either.  And then we
fought, and... it was good.  Thanks. -- Pearl Stone
P.S.  You make a fine pincushion.  Not everyone can do that.

El Segundo and Q-Tip -- Would it help if we cried? -- Little Smiff and Clay Poole

We WILL cry.  It's so embarrassing to have Pearl yelling at us like that, and all the
windows in the guildhouse open, and EVERYONE could hear! -- Pony Stone and Chump Loy
