                                      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 DEVIATION moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
2-2-0 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon DOGS OF WAR this time out who 
this turn suffered a fall into 5th position in the wake of a 1-4-0 round.  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
THE BROODKIND went 3-0-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  My praise to THUNDERCATS for 
their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving 
of notice!  In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER put down QUEEN OF 
COOL, causing her to lose 29 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 MIKE MCCREADY himself.  This time out BEAST MODE made his bid for the 
throne as he challenged MIKE MCCREADY in an all out contest of skill for possession 
of the title!  The city has turned out in honor of BEAST MODE, for with his arena 
victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe 
that over half of the old women in JHELUM 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.  LUROCIANS Z2 is feared.  This much 
I can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of DEVIATION last week.  Busy avoiding LUROCIANS Z2?  A match that raised a few 
eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that CHEETARA posted a challenge against 
the more highly recognized GARDEN.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand 
CHEETARA subdued GARDEN.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
