                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRANSEL games.  BIG BILL BROONZY caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LEGIONNAIRE and was 
awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BIG BILL 
BROONZY put down LEGIONNAIRE, causing him to lose 20 points of recognition in the 
process.  Although SON OF JOHN made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple 
the reign of victorious JUGGERNAUT.  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in TRANSEL 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 TRANSEL.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but 
confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after CRUSADER.  Watch your back!  As a 
gladiator gets older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of his heart.  True, DESMOND 
DOSS?  Who could miss your "brave" challenge of ALICE AIN'T HERE?  All the city knows 
the duel went in favor of DESMOND DOSS.  I shall not fail to spread the word in other 
cities of this "mighty" victory.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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

Six dead in duels this week!  In the Dark Arena, but so what?  Couldn't somebody have
sent ONE more, to protect the city from the risk of perishment? -- Lord Tev
Greenheart

An oh-fer turn.  Tedious of it.  I bet if the new guy had come, HE would have won. --
Not-a-Nut Jones
P.S.  And I'm wondering where Son of John was when the new guy was SUPPOSED to be
getting off the boat....
