                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUKAL games.  BITTERMAN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested SILK GARTER and was awarded 21 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BITTERMAN put down SILK 
GARTER, causing her to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has SHORT SKIRT in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZUKAL "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!   
     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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
