                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DULLENS games.  SUGAR BULL caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BRUCE LEE'S BROTHER and was 
awarded 10 points in recognition.  Although LAME OX made a valiant effort, it did not 
suffice to topple the reign of victorious SIERRA.  Would you believe that over half 
of the old women in DULLENS seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DULLENS "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.  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 
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

Only eight fights this time, and a decline is not something Dullens arena can afford,
but... I find it hard to care as much as previously.  I'm graduating FINALLY, and,
well, the immediacy is gone, you know?  Lame Ox is graduating, too, which he says he

never expected to do.  That's pretty much Ox for you, takes every day as it comes and
calls it a good one.  He's actually quite comforting to have around. -- Laughter
