                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CLIFFHOME games.  Did only my eyes note the 3-0-1 
record which MYSTIC KNIGHTS managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a 
record will draw challengers!  NICKELBACK caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested VETERAN MERCENARY and was awarded 17 points in 
recognition.  Not for nothing has ARCANE TACO in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  
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 CLIFFHOME.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in CLIFFHOME as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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 Sharp Eyes
