                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly RIZTAB games.  Former top team DREAMERS was unseated 
this week as SWEET MAGIC moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 5-0-0 
record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week ALL HALLOW'S EVE went 0-0-0 to move up 3 in the rankings.  Did 
only my eyes note the 5-0-0 record which SWEET MAGIC managed to post this round?  I 
don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  KOKO LEAH caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested HERBIE HANCOCK and was 
awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KOKO LEAH 
put down HERBIE HANCOCK, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process. 
Although WHERE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious PRODICUS.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in RIZTAB 
seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In RIZTAB "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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in RIZTAB.  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  
The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and Sweet Magic

Dizzy Gillespie -- I just totally fell over after the first few spins.  Well, almost.
Which is why I had to win FAST.  Because I would have fallen over if it'd taken
longer. -- Oriola
P.S.  Have a cookie.

Herbie Hancock -- I have never thought chocolate was improved by the addition of
herbs.  *I* certainly wasn't, and I'm the Queen of Chocolate, you know. -- Koko Leah

Aedesia -- I made it too sticky, didn't I?  Probably took it off the fire too soon.
-- Taffy

Ella Fitz -- That's embarrassing.  Send me a ticket to your concert to make up for
it, okay? -- Teresianna

Teresi thinks SHE is embarrassed?  Not as much as me! -- Nelli Politana
