                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRANSEL games.  DESMOND DOSS caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BIG BILL BROONZY and was awarded 
27 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SON OF JOHN put 
down ALBERT KING, causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  
Although TOM TIGER made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious BLIND BLAKE.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in TRANSEL 
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.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  FLUFFY BOY take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in TRANSEL.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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!  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

NO!  TOM TIGER graduated before ME? NONONO! -- Son of John, foaming at the mouth

Odd that Alice should be most challenged, since she Ain't Here.  And there were no
challenges except to the Dark Arena.

Our congratulations to Dovahkiin. -- Jorja and most of the Psycho Squad (not Son of
John, who thinks he should be ahead of everybody, and not Alice, because she Ain't
Here)

And, since we have an oh-fer turn here, we're not going to talk about it in detail.
At least, not in public.  One or two comments might be made in private, though. --
