                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRANSEL games.  HAPPY HARRIET caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested DAVID FINCHER and was awarded 
7 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, XENORIA put down 
EVE AND EMMA, causing her to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  The city 
has turned out in honor of NOT-A-NUT JONES, for with his arena victory he may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TRANSEL "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in TRANSEL as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

It's all Emma's fault.  She was supposed to hold John Huston this time while I got a
turn to hit him, but she let him get away, and he HIT BACK. -- Eve the disgusted

John Huston -- It's YOUR fault that Eve is mad at me.  If you hadn't kept wiggling
around, she would have been able to hit you, but you might as well have had ANTS in
your pants.  So now Eve's hitting ME, which is totally unjust. -- Emma

David Fincher -- One of these days I'm going to get a good grip on your feathers, and
then I'll have a decorated hatband.  You can't keep squirming out of it forever.  And
you can't keep bribing the arenamaster to stop me before I get that far, either! --
Not-A-Nut Jones

Cottonmouth -- Well, gosh, I thought you wanted a drink, so I gave you a swig of my
vodka.  I was being GENEROUS.  It isn't MY fault if you mistook it for water and
choked on it. -- Happy Harriet

Orson Wells -- I'm pretty sure, well, maybe, I think... but if I could remember you
clearly, I bet I wouldn't like you much.  That's probably why I got so rough.
Muscle-memory, you know. -- Amy Nesia

Austin Nordel -- Well, heck, you think I'm going to cringe just because you STOLE
that fight from me?  Think again, buster. -- Chas Cringer
