                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DULLENS games.  Former top team CARDOW HUNTERS was 
unseated this week as ARCANE ROYALTY moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  In one of the week's more notable duels, IRONHAND 
put down FLOYDRIFFIC, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  
Although GEMMA made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious FLOYD CASTAWAY.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
DULLENS 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.  DULLENS, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is ARCANE ROYALTY, a guild shunned and avoided 
by many in the weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it 
was that spent the better part of last week avoiding ARCANE ROYALTY.  Indeed it was 
HOUSE OF CARDS.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of SEGUE who this week 
posted a TV challenge to a warrior a full 10 points below in the rankings.  I thought 
SEGUE showed great skill and promise when he overcame GRIM LAUGHTER.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 DULLENS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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
