                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ERINIKA games.  Former top team FEAR FACTORY 15 was 
unseated this week as GASHOUSE GANG moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-2-1 record for the round.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of 
MONGOL HORDE.  How else weeks like this one's 4-1-0?  How else the sudden move to 2nd 
team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with CALENDAR GIRLS' team 
record!  A 3-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 3rd place ranking.  I have begun to 
suspect trickery on the part of FEAR FACTORY.  How else weeks like this one's 2-0-0?  
How else the sudden move to 4th team?  My tutors were fond of telling me that the 
higher you rise the harder you fall.  This week GREAT OLD ONES went 0-1-0 and fell 11 
notches into 15th!  FEAR FACTORY 4 bore the brunt of major assault on their standings 
this week as they dropped to 17th position as the result of going 1-1-0!  EYES WIRED 
SHUT caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested 
POP KHAN and was awarded 30 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, EYES WIRED SHUT put down POP KHAN, causing him to lose 22 points of 
recognition in the process.  As is fitting, the most sought after warrior on the 
challenge boards this week was none other than Duelmaster NECROWRETCH himself.  Who 
here was not present for the title fight this week as KHAN D. DATE boldly challenged 
NECROWRETCH in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  This time victory fell to 
the grasp of the usurper.  All hail KHAN D. DATE, Duelmaster of ERINIKA!  Would you 
believe that over half of the old women in ERINIKA seem to feel that they could fight 
better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ERINIKA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  ERINIKA, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is FEAR FACTORY 8, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of MONGOL HORDE are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  A match 
that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that ANNOUNCER BUNNY 
posted a challenge against the more highly recognized KLEPTO MAN.  The results, you 
ask?  Well, the firebrand ANNOUNCER BUNNY defeated KLEPTO MAN.  Remember warriors, 
this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  HERCULES has sworn to take up religion 
upon living to tell of its recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing 
indeed!  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one reward--death. 
This past week CTHULHU DAWN, at 4-6-0, departed ERINIKA forever.  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 ERINIKA as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
