                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUKAL games.  KATANA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested BLUE FUNK and was awarded 21 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KATANA put down BLUE FUNK, 
causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out 
in honor of MABUSHI, for with its arena victory it may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in ZUKAL 
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 ZUKAL.   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ZUKAL.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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
