                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JHELUM games.  Former top team DOGS OF WAR was 
unseated this week as SAVAGE HORDE moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  GRELIS FLARG caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested WARBURTON and was awarded 19 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GRELIS FLARG put down 
WARBURTON, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has DARKCLAW in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that 
the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?  
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JHELUM "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  This week marked the last days of RAIGHNALL who at 
15-6-0 was dispatched to the Dark Arena by the command of SAVAGE HORDE's demanding 
management.  Some guilds are strict but few are as heartless as SAVAGE HORDE.  
Witness, last turn they sent RAIGHNALL, a 15-6-0 fighter, to the Dark Arena!  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 JHELUM.  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:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Hmm, just us and the Savage Horde.  Ouch. -- the Dogs of War
P.S.  Okay, and a LOT of standbys.

Our congratulations to Raighnall. -- Jorja and the Dogs of War

Skullhammer -- No need to ask how you came by that name.  I have *such* a headache!
-- Jaeger

And four wins over standbys.  On the whole, we don't feel like writing personals to
the standbys, so this is it for them. -- the rest of the Dogs of War

Except me, and it isn't to the standby.  How DARE those bookies say my defeat of the
Mordant Deserter is "unbelievable"?  Believe it, and stay out of my way for a while.
