                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JHELUM games.  KAI-GHAN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DAWE GONNIT and was awarded 23 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, FENRIS KHAN put down 
GRRUNCH, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  This time out 
RAIGHNALL made his bid for the throne as he challenged BRAVE 2 in an all out contest 
of skill for possession of the title!  Not for nothing has BRAVE 2 in the past laid 
claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  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 JHELUM these days is JOTUN.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of SAVAGE HORDE last week.  Busy avoiding JOTUN?  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  WARBURTON take warning!  You have 
more than a few enemies in JHELUM.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of 
DARKCLAW who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 9 points below in the 
rankings.  I thought DARKCLAW showed great skill and promise when he bested 
WARBURTON.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there 
is but one reward--death.  This past week DAWE GONNIT, at 9-8-0, departed JHELUM 
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 JHELUM 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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

Our congratulations to Brave 2.  Perhaps this will allow you to move up to a real
name, what with the Name-Change-O-Rama being upon us. -- Jorja and the Dogs of War

And a salute to the tourney participants.  Some of 'em did well, but they're all
graduates.  We want gladiators who are coming back HERE. -- Jorja and the Dogs of War

Var-Khan -- Oh, yes, savage in deed as well as in name.  Good fight, actually. --
Blind Betsy
P.S.  Since fighting is what we're here for.

Kai-Ghan -- No, no, your team can't win them ALL, you know! -- Warburton

Grrunch -- You sound like the time a warhorse stepped on my foot.  The bones made
that kind of sound.  I stabbed the horse, but that didn't help my foot. -- Fenris
Khan

The Fratsfa Slave's pretty much a joke, isn't he? -- Dawe Gonnit

Side Effects -- I think you're in the wrong line of work. -- Bunker Bill
P.S.  Have you considered joining the Harry Potter and the team?
