                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TELORINTHE games.  Former top team CHAPEL OF THE 
GHOULS was unseated this week as BAD SIGNS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-1 record for the round.  DOOR-TO-DOOR SALES caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested OBNOXIO and was awarded 19 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 3 WIT put down HAMMER 
KRINKER, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
PITSPAWN FOULDOG made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious LAKE EFFECT SNOW.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
TELORINTHE seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  CHAIN GANG 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 CHAIN GANG.  Indeed it was CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS.  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after 3 WIT.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  CUTTER has sworn to take up religion upon living 
to tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  My 
sources at CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS stable claim they've never seen the guild bitterer.  
This as a result of the untimely demise of GODLESS CREATION.  Beware VENUS!  Walk 
proud, warriors of WETWORKS!  By striking down GODLESS CREATION you have avenged the 
honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known to all in TELORINTHE.  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 TELORINTHE 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
