                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly MALCORN games.  STONEBOW caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MISTRESS and was awarded 18 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CYBERMANCER put down ROCKWOOD, 
causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Our last turn's 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, and REXROTH has made the way for 
a new Duelmaster!  With REXROTH clearing the throne, DARK CREATION of QRYSYS takes a 
proud seat as MALCORN's new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition points.  Would you 
believe that over half of the old women in MALCORN seem to feel that they could fight 
better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 MALCORN as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

another task? -- Bristlecone
