                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly MALCORN games.  SIMULACRUM caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THE USEROUS MERCHANT and was 
awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, PIE EYED 
PIPER put down ISITWALENGCENGCE, causing it to lose 10 points of recognition in the 
process.  Although WENDIGO made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious STRADA.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
MALCORN seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In MALCORN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  MALCORN, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is DARK CREATION, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of TERMINUS 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.  SOMNAMBULANT take warning!  You have 
more than a few enemies in MALCORN.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games 
this week, it seems that MIYAMOTO posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized SOMNAMBULANT.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand MIYAMOTO 
defeated SOMNAMBULANT.  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?  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one 
reward--death.  This past week ROCK MAPLE, at 6-5-0, departed MALCORN forever.  Dark 
alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in MALCORN.  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 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Bet Twice -- Although I won, I definitely came out worse than you did.  Not sure I
want to try that a third time. -- Quasil

Pie Eyed Piper -- You might want to invest in some armor; you didn't look so good
when you stumbled out of there. -- Avery

Mossrock -- You're not supposed to attack.  You're just supposed to stand there.
What gives? -- Alryn

Arenamaster Landon -- Why are we squandering Malcorn's wealth treating a Convicted
Thief at the infirmary?  You should have allowed him to bleed out on the sands. --
Varick

Alryn -- So long as your busses run on time, who caers? -- Mossrock
P.S.  I didn't mean to do the bone-crushing bit, but I felt threatened, and it makes
me testy.
P.P.S.  Also, you're probably insane to have challenged me in the first place.

Oh, whoopee-do, a Dangerous Criminal.  JUST what I wanted to meet up with. -- Wind
Rider

Avengelina -- You dwarves are a little strange. -- Redbird
P.S.  That was not an invitation to share my bath, either.  I hate getting too much
hair in the drain.

Boss -- (curled lip of insubordination)  Not MINE. -- Rock Maple

Isitwalengcengce -- Now, THERE is a name with individuality. -- Stump

Alryn -- Head?  What head? -- Stump
P.S.  There was something on top that hurt a whole bunch, so I got rid of it.
Haven't been troubled since.
