                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly LAPUR games.  Fortune did not smile upon PAIN HURTS 
this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 10th position in the wake of a 0-0-0 
round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week CARDOW HUNTERS went 4-1-1 to move up 4 in the rankings.  My praise to 
LIVING DEAD for their 4-0-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought 
round deserving of notice!  SANDSTORM caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested LITTLE THIN GOD and was awarded 28 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, XUR put down PISTOL PETE, 
causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling to wait upon 
the will of others, Duelmaster MAUL RAT challenged HUNTER last week in a match to 
decide the fate of the throne.  The city has turned out in honor of HUNTER, for with 
his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  
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 LAPUR "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  LAPUR, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names 
of thy guilds is WEIRD STUDENTS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any 
of LIVING DEAD last week.  Busy avoiding WEIRD STUDENTS?  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  LAUGHING LULU take warning!  You have more than 
a few enemies in LAPUR.  As a gladiator gets older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of 
hers heart.  True, BLOOD MAKES NOISE?  Who could miss your "brave" challenge of 
TOADSMACKER?  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as TOADSMACKER was 
dispatched by BLOOD MAKES NOISE.  Is this what passes for courage in LAPUR?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I have seen 
men cut down in their prime.  This week THE TAKEN must mourn the loss of 14-8-0 
TOADSMACKER to ALMOST EXACTLY.  Perhaps even the strong cannot escape the vagaries of 
this world.  This week arena veteran LITTLE THIN GOD was slain, despite a 14-8-0 
record.  TOKUDAI must hold silent, for this week he was humbled in the arena by a 
successful Bloodfeud won by NIGHT STALKER of LIVING DEAD.  Hail NIGHT STALKER for thy 
victory!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is 
only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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

More one-four.  I think the arena's record-keeper got stuck with a bunch of one-four
entries and decided to drop them all on US.  We're being punished for not practicing!
