                                      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 MOONDOGS was 
unseated this week as SPRINGBORN moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 5-0-0 record for the round.  DAWN ARANAR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested ICARUS and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, DAWN ARANAR put down ICARUS, causing him to 
lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Although NESTOR ORDH made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious BUFFALO BOB.  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 KOLACT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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 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

serenade. -- Lunar Coyote
