                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LYRATILAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  COGSWORTH caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KEOKUK MOON and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER put 
down SIMON, causing him to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling 
to wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster GRAPE APE challenged RUMPLE last week in 
a match to decide the fate of the throne.  Although RUMPLE made a valiant effort, it 
did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious GRAPE APE.  Would you believe that 
over half of the old women in LYRATILAN seem to feel that they could fight better 
than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city LYRATILAN.  LYRATILAN, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of 
thy guilds is SAY MY NAME, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding SAY MY NAME.  Indeed it was PRIMATES-R-US.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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 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

I want to register a PROTEST.  I want a new manager.  What kind of sick manager
sticks a perfectly decent gladiator with an arena name like... Increase Texas?

     One who thinks Texas is too small?

Well, at least no one DIED this time.  And we went two-three, although both wins were
(of course) over standbys.  And that newest guy--he looks like a bad omen to us. --
