                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly BONSUR games.  Former top team TOOL SHED was unseated 
this week as SENTINELS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 3-2-0 
record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week CHURCH LADIES went 2-0-0 to move up 5 in the rankings.  
RUNEHELM caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested ANNALEE and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, OLAF put down PEARL WHITE, causing her to lose 5 points of recognition 
in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of SAW HORSE, 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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in BONSUR these days is DEMONS & DEVILS.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of SENTINELS last week.  Busy avoiding DEMONS & DEVILS?   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in BONSUR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  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.--

Olaf -- Of course!  We've got a new batch of smash, too. -- Pearl White

Skara Brae -- The Venomous Gigolo?  He isn't worthy of you. -- Dellea Dover

Saw Horse -- I don't see how that can count as "savagely defeated" when it was mainly
a case of "brushed aside."  But I won't sneeze at the four skills I got out of it.
Thanks for those. -- Dellea Dover

Anzahanzek -- Two-shotted.  Oh, well, I suppose it was better than being ONE-shotted.
-- Annalee

Woodchip Willa -- Too many splinters for me. -- Mona from Maui

Ozawindib -- I was playing around with your name (and other things!) and didn't get
anywhere.  With your name.  The other things were, ahem, another matter.  And you pay
attention very nicely. -- Pearl White

We need to DO something about that Userous Merchant.  He's threatening to sue for
possession of the smash vats! -- Bellamore
