                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TROCAR games.  Former top team BASH BROS BATHROOM was 
unseated this week as CHEEZY GOODNESS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  My praise to CHEEZY GOODNESS for their 4-1-0 week 
this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  OUT OF 
TP caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested 
PAMELA TWITCH and was awarded 11 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, POWERLESS AMP put down BRENDA, causing her to lose 8 points of 
recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of FOGGED UP MIRROR, 
for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  
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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in TROCAR these days is BASH BROS BATHROOM.  At least, most blades in 
town are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of USELESS TOOLS 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 YAHOO WAHOO.  Watch your back!  At the 
gambling halls I have started to bet money on LIVERMORE.  It has got the courage it 
takes.  Witness its challenge this turn against LEAKY TOILET!  The SPARF! stable will 
be up late tonight, for indeed it was LIVERMORE who claimed victory in the contest, 
ascending 19 in recognition!   
     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 TROCAR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

   They say it's bad manners to toot your own horn, but if I don't do it, who will?

I am undertaking a fiction-writing project on the Patreon website, under my own name
of Judith Solberg.  It isn't the kind of story I might put in the newsletter, but I
think some of you might enjoy it.  I don't know how much you can see if you just
cruise by, but they tell me it's up and open. -- Jorja
