                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARVAT games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week SECRET SQUIRRELS went 3-2-0 to move 
up 4 in the rankings.  SHADOW DANCER caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested BELLA Z. BUBB and was awarded 13 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SHADOW DANCER put down BELLA 
Z. BUBB, causing her to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has FIREWALL in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in ARVAT seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ARVAT "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  ARVAT, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names 
of thy guilds is BIG LAKE NOMADS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of DEVIL ADVOCATES are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the 
arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are 
after CATACLYSM.  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ARVAT.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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.--
