                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUKAL games.  CHANTAL caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested FRATSFA SLAVE and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, RED SPECIAL put down 
WILKERSON, causing him to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail BICYCLE RACE, Duelmaster of 
ZUKAL!  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!  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.  Apparently the stalwarts of PAPERBOYS are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  BICYCLE RACE 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.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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

One-four, and it was the new guy who won.  We hope it doesn't give him a swelled
head, after all, he only defeated a Persistent Beggar.  It's a win, but it isn't
much, and it took him TWO MINUTES to do it!  Could be a sign, and not a good one. --
