                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly MALCORN games.  PHOENIX caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THIRD COURSE and was awarded 13 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, PHOENIX put down 
THIRD COURSE, causing her to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
SNOWFOOT made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
SIR TOO DUMB.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained 
their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     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 BLOODSWORN, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of THE GRAIL KNIGHTS 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.  WINTERGREEN take warning!  You have 
more than a few enemies in MALCORN.  As a gladiator gets older, the icy grip of fear 
lays hold of his heart.  True, VITAE?  Who could miss your "brave" challenge of 
WINTERGREEN?  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as WINTERGREEN was 
overcame by VITAE.  Is this what passes for courage in MALCORN?  I can not but 
mention with disdain the name of KREYSUS who this week posted a challenge to a 
warrior a full 10 points below in the rankings.  I thought KREYSUS showed great skill 
and promise when he beat WHITE RABBIT.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!  
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

temporary respite, no doubt, but right now, we'll take it.  Even with mosquitos. --
