                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DULLENS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  GOLDENEYE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ADELITA and was awarded 18 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GOLDENEYE put down ADELITA, 
causing her to lose 19 points of recognition in the process.  Although SHOCK TOP made 
a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious THE LIBRARIAN. 
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.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Hmm, I see that in the biggest point movements, Toxic Sludge gained thirteen points
and Starsinger lost thirteen (different fights, but still).  That seems very
appropriate for arena thirteen, doesn't it?

Adelita -- Good fight.  Way to go. -- Gray Bear the Relieved Departing

Ghosts, bah. -- Goldeneye

I don't care for Toodles.  He has no self-control. -- Mist on Grass

The Tex Impersonator isn't so a hotshot, either, even if he (it) did win. --
Starsinger

Toxic Sludge -- You may me feel sick. -- Fallenrock
