                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DAL SHANG games.  Former top team SAND DANCERS was 
unseated this week as BUMPER WISDOM moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-1-0 record for the round.  PRAISE THE LARD caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LIRI TYL AI and was awarded 11 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CAPTIAN LENSAR put down 
KURR LI, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has NAMASTE Y'ALL in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
it's proven its 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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in DAL SHANG.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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

These personals may be too late, we couldn't get hold of the Hands to write until way 
later than usual.  If so, next time.  Two-three for us, with four of those fights 
being with standbys.  It's embarrassing to lose to standbys like that, and expensive, 
too.  We've got this deal with 'em that if we lose, we have to buy them dinner.  I 
think they actually TRY to win! -- Moffit

Current personals:

Namaste Y'all -- Graduate already!  I gave you that fourteenth win as a contribution 
in that line. -- Moffit

Ironic Irony -- *I* don't find it funny. -- Whir Li

And one-two against standbys. -- Hurl Li
