                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DULLENS games.  My praise to CARDOW HUNTERS for their 
4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  MAMMOTH EARS caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested CRANKY OLD COOT and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, TEX IMPERSONATOR put down PART POWER, causing him 
to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Although SMALL FOX made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious SIERRA.  Informants 
"close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on 
beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     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.  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 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

Nine fights, seven standbys.  Doesn't speak well of this arena, does it?  Well, WE
are not going to be an evaporating team.  This time, we went three-two, in the usual
form.  One can hope, faintly, that the new guys here will do better, but who really
knows? -- Laughter Redknife
