                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DULLENS games.  THE BEAKSTER caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested GRAY BEAR and was awarded 11 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, THE BEAKSTER put 
down GRAY BEAR, causing him to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  
Unwilling to wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster FLOYDRIFFIC challenged 
BLACKBUCK last week in a match to decide the fate of the throne.  The city has turned 
out in honor of BLACKBUCK, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the 
highest position in the city!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top 
team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DULLENS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in DULLENS these days is MMM BEER!.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of ARCANE ROYALTY last week.  Busy avoiding MMM BEER!?  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  BLACKBUCK take warning!  You have more than 
a few enemies in DULLENS.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, 
it seems that ADELITA posted a challenge against the more highly recognized TOXIC 
SLUDGE.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand ADELITA subdued TOXIC SLUDGE.  
Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
