                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KALTOS games.  ELECTRIC SHEEP caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CREDIT CARD and was awarded 21 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ELECTRIC SHEEP put 
down CREDIT CARD, causing her to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Who 
here was not present for the title fight this week as SONNY boldly challenged 
MOSQUITO in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  Although SONNY made a 
valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious MOSQUITO.  Would 
you believe that over half of the old women in KALTOS seem to feel that they could 
fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city KALTOS.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms 
the knowledge that many fighters are after PENDRU ROST.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Was I the only one shocked to see the well 
respected fighter MAYHEM (3-1-0) appear on the sands of the Dark Arena?  He is now 
dead.  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?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
