                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARVAT games.  Former top team B.I.G. was unseated this 
week as GIANT KILLERS moved up from 6th ranking to take the top spot with a 4-1-0 
record for the round.  There were bitter words at CON + INSULT's guildhouse after a 
0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 13th.  Dark Arena anyone?  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
GIANT KILLERS went 4-1-0 to move up 5 in the rankings.  GAFFEL KOLSCH caught the eye 
of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested PHIL N. AINGELLE and 
was awarded 26 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
GAFFEL KOLSCH put down PHIL N. AINGELLE, causing him to lose 20 points of recognition 
in the process.  This time out S.N.A.F.U. made his bid for the throne as he TV 
challenged DROP TOP BM in an all out contest of skill for possession of the title!  
The city has turned out in honor of S.N.A.F.U., 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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ARVAT.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  BIG LAKE NOMADS is feared.  This much I can say.  Methinks 
more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last 
week avoiding BIG LAKE NOMADS.  Indeed it was SECRET SQUIRRELS.  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  FEDERAL AGENT take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in ARVAT.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 ARVAT.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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
