                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZUKAL!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  THE TALL MAN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KING RAT and was awarded 19 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, THE TALL MAN put down KING 
RAT, causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Although BICYCLE 
RACE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
SCALES.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZUKAL "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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

Our congratulations to Scales, who has been weighed and found acceptable. -- Jorja
and Blue Moon

One-four and a death?  Cheese louise!  Still, except for my win over a standby, they
were all fights against real gladiators, so we salute 'em. -- Wilkerson, for Blue
Moon
P.S.  We could do personal personals, but there seems to be doubt that anybody's
noticing?

Mercury -- Calling me "a fine opponent" after I have fallen to the ground and died
strikes me as just a tad sarcastic.  You might want to tone that down next time you
kill somebody. -- Ghost of Rigel Stone, somewhat annoyed
