                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRICORUS games.  Former top team VENTURE BROS. was 
unseated this week as CHUCK'S PINUPS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-0-0 record for the round.  ONE EYE DARK caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THE CAPTAIN and was awarded 16 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TERRI NUNN put down LEFT 
EARACHE, causing it to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Although FROG 
BELLY LINT made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious MOLOTOV.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in TRICORUS 
seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TRICORUS.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  BATTLE FROGS 03-13 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 BATTLE FROGS 03-13.  Indeed it was VENTURE BROS..  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  MORNING DEW take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in TRICORUS.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at 
the games this week, it seems that HEADSHOT posted a challenge against the more 
highly recognized NOG.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand HEADSHOT lost to 
NOG.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I can not but mention with 
disdain the name of GAIL RUSSELL who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 
11 points below in the rankings.  I thought GAIL RUSSELL showed great skill and 
promise when she bested TRISKADEL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Let all swords of the city take heed!  
By law, DARK HORSEMEN has but one remaining week to take their revenge upon MOLOTOV 
for the slaying of SHADOW ROSE.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in TRICORUS 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 - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

I don't know why we bother to do personals late OR current.  Eight died in duels last
week, ah, turn 649, week before or whatever.  So the city is going to perish with
some over, and there'll be no one to READ the personals, right? -- Hargerd

One-four.  Huh.  Makes me glad I'm leaving.  I hate it when the rest of the team
calls me "the old man." -- Hargerd
P.S.  If you want personal personals, give us a clue.  After a while, it gets
tiresome making conversation based on nothing but name and style.

Hargerd -- Great fight on your graduation day, thank you for the training and the
great battles. -- Frog Belly Lint

Molotov -- Not sure I want SL, but so few options up here. -- FBL

All -- Sorry, I must sit until the Grand Tourney. -- Barren Toad

Six dead in the Dark Arena, but I don't think that old prophecy means anything these
days.

One-four.  (sigh)  A last win over Frog Belly Lint for me, I shall treasure it for
days, I assure.  And the rest... losses.  All to managed gladiators, so I suppose
that's something.  But not much.  I don't know what they'll do without me.  Well,
actually, I *can* guess:  They'll pull up their figurative socks (we don't wear socks
much) and do their best.  I salute you all. -- Hargerd
