                                      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 GASTROPUB was unseated 
this week as CON + INSULT moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot with a 4-1-0 
record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon WEIRD STUDENTS this time out who 
this turn suffered a fall into 9th position in the wake of a 0-0-0 round.  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
CON + INSULT went 4-1-0 to move up 3 in the rankings.  My praise to SECRET SQUIRRELS 
for their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round 
deserving of notice!  THE SEAL caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as he skillfully bested FEROCITY and was awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, S.A.F.E. put down QUEBURT, causing him to lose 15 
points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has EXTERMINATION in the past 
laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week it's proven its combat skill yet 
again.  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 ARVAT.  ARVAT, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy guilds 
is DEVIL ADVOCATES, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Apparently the stalwarts of CON + INSULT 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 DROOL 
ROCKWORM.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this 
week, it seems that STRAWMAN posted a challenge against the more highly recognized 
DROOL ROCKWORM.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand STRAWMAN subdued DROOL 
ROCKWORM.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  DAVE L. HIZDU has sworn to take up religion upon living to tell of 
his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  Let all swords of 
the city take heed!  By law, DEVIL ADVOCATES has but one remaining week to take their 
revenge upon THE KING for the slaying of DR. KLORD.  Some say a warrior is judged by 
the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on 
the belt!   
     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!  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
