                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DULLENS games.  GRAY BEAR caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested FLOYD CASTAWAY and was awarded 18 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GRAY BEAR put down 
FLOYD CASTAWAY, causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has CORKY in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that 
the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?  
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city DULLENS.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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 DULLENS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

Standbys, bah. -- Wolfdog and Blackbuck

That should count for something, shouldn't it?  And I made you sweat for five
