                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZORPUNT games.  Former top team KRILL CAVALRY was 
unseated this week as HOYT FOUNDATION moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week HOYT FOUNDATION went 4-1-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  THE ANXIOUS MAN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested CHUMP LOY and was awarded 11 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, DESTROYER TADD put down KITTEN, causing her to lose 2 
points of recognition in the process.  Although VIBRANT THING made a valiant effort, 
it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious PEARL STONE.  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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ZORPUNT.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  BORN LOSERS is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of HOYT FOUNDATION are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  DESTROYER TADD take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in ZORPUNT.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Was I the only one shocked to see the 
well respected fighter INFANT (2-0-1) appear on the sands of the Dark Arena?  He is 
now dead.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is 
only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ZORPUNT.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
