                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KOLACT games.  Former top team THE ABYSMALS was 
unseated this week as SPRINGBORN moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 3-2-0 record for the round.  DEVIL GIRL caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested ICARUS and was awarded 25 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, DEVIL GIRL put down ICARUS, causing him to 
lose 22 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has QUIZNOS in the 
past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat 
skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in KOLACT seem to 
feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 KOLACT as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into 
a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani 
Sharp Eyes

Icarus -- Fudge!  Of all the shots that shot...that one shot really stuck with me.
Ding dang if'n I didn't think I could throw off the sidereal reverberations and
overcome the cri-sees...but your final attack didn't give me and the stars time. --
Buffalo Bob

Nestor Ordh -- Thanks for the fight.  Feel free to look me up again sometimes, I
think we could really get a roll going. -- Bayfront Betty 

All -- Well, Crazy Old Coot passed his first test.  Second tier rating...I'm
impressed. -- Still

Quiznos -- Well done, and I salute you as I depart.  Not from the island, I like it
here, but from the arena at long last.  Fare you well here. -- Lirvel Moorn

Sir Cumference -- Damn.  You're determined to see me on a diet, aren't you?  But I
maintain that my girth is not unreasonable, and I will NOT live on lettuce and
grapefruit juice.  (shudder) -- Cynica
P.S.  I could make a few remarks about your equator, but you will notice how I
refrain!

Okay, so the Kung-Fu Master beat me.  Big deal.  It isn't like I aspire to EVER fight
unarmed.  I don't NEED to learn those tricks. -- Persea Quell
P.S.  Okay, I need to learn how to defend against them, but otherwise, no.  And not
even a strong defensive need.  It's the Advanced Gladiators who get all wound up with
Kung-Fu, and even if I graduate, I am NOT going to the Isle.  No way.  Ms.
Mediocrity, that's me.  One of thousands, and probably even one of tens of thousands.
Ha.

Buffalo Bob -- Ha!  I knew if I could just get HIGH enough before dropping you, I'd
break you like a negg.  And there you are, broke neggs.  A beautiful sight. -- Icarus

Icarus -- What have you been drinking, eating, or smoking?  This isn't like you. --
Cynica

Cynica -- Who, me?  You're just jealous, and I am NOT going to share.  You wouldn't
appreciate it. -- Icarus

Bayfront Betty -- Whoa!  Careful not to lean over too far, ma'am!  You could hurt
yourself falling on your, ah, face in the sand like that.  Very hard and scratchy,
sand. -- Nestor Ordh
P.S.  I've got a good soothing ointment, if you'd care to drop around our place after
the fights.  It'll take care of that sand rash a fair treat.

Bayfront Betty -- (blinking vaguely)  If you say so.... -- Icarus
