                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TOBIR games.  Former top team POWERS OF PAIN was 
unseated this week as WU-TANG FOREVER moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 1-1-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week WU-TANG FOREVER went 1-1-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 3-0-0 record which WRATHMEN! managed to post 
this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  REMUS caught 
the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TANIS and was 
awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GHOSTFACE 
put down FLOPPSIE, causing her to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  
Although NOBLE ASSASSIN made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign 
of victorious MAN MOUNTAIN.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team 
has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  THE DEATH SQUAD is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of WRATHMEN! are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  SPIKE take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in TOBIR.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  My hearty congratulations BONE CRUSHER, for thy 
revenge upon BIG DUMB SLOB, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know 
better, eh?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is 
only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in TOBIR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Powers of Pain -- condolences on the loss of what looked to be a promising young
fighter.  Best of luck in the upcoming Dead Tourney if that be his route.  Savina
will be active the next few turns for you to exact your revenge. -- Wrathmen

Corwin -- To the victor goes the spoils. -- Remus

Bone Crusher -- Not if I don't let you hit me. -- Granmeyer

Greeting Tobir!  No promises on how long a stay I will have here, but if someone
other than Jorja were to start writing personals... It would go a long way in
persuading me to stay longer. -- Kharadmon, mgr Wrathmen
P.S.  No offense intended!  Just trying to get other to participate.

Gosh, I had the only win in our pack?  That's pretty strange, you know.  I mean, the
others, well, some of them, not Floppsie, but the others tend to take things so
SERIOUSLY.  I just like to play.  But playing is IMPORTANT, and that must be why I
won.  Right, that's it, so people will UNDERSTAND that they should PLAY more. --
