                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARKERS games.  Take note that MIDDLE WAY 11 has lost 
its top team spot, having missed the turn.  Where are you boys?  Due to his absence 
and inability to defend the throne, CONFIDENCE has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail NORM QUESHA, Duelmaster 
of ARKERS!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  A match that raised a few eyebrows 
at the games this week, it seems that QUICKLING posted a challenge against the more 
highly recognized KOTTER NAHL.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand QUICKLING 
subdued KOTTER NAHL.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 ARKERS 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 next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Longsword -- Ah, but it isn't only the sword, it's also the man!  Not to mention the
experience.  Yes, most of my experience is in losing, but that's given me a chance to
observe closely every gladiator who has whizzed past.  I have learned from them all.
