                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUKAL games.  QUARTZ caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested KEPLER and was awarded 18 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, QUARTZ put down KEPLER, 
causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Although ARDSHEAL made 
a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious BARELY LEGAL.  
Would you believe that over half of the old women in ZUKAL seem to feel that they 
could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZUKAL "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  ZUKAL, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names 
of thy guilds is SERPENTS HOLD 3, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding SERPENTS HOLD 3.  Indeed it was IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY. 
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  KEPLER take warning! 
You have more than a few enemies in ZUKAL.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Strange what qualities come forth in the 
face of certain doom.  GALILEO has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena 
victory!  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 ZUKAL 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
