                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUKAL games.  TERM caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested THROUGH THE WINDOW and was awarded 13 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WATSON put down 
GALILEO, causing him to lose 5 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, ODDLY ELEGANT has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail SCALES, 
Duelmaster of ZUKAL!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     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 ZUKAL these days is RED FURY.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding RED FURY.  Indeed it was PAPERBOYS.  
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  BYE has sworn to take up religion upon living to 
tell of its recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  Dark 
alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in ZUKAL as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Two-three?  Is there some plot out there, Jorja's guys go two-three today, wherever
they're fighting?  Could They at least let US pick who gets the two wins and who the
three losses?  Because we would spread it around a little, share out the triumph and
despair, etc.  We don't HAVE to be the same winners and losers each time. -- The Tall
