                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ALJAFIR games.  HEAD NUGENT caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ZAXXON and was awarded 20 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HEAD NUGENT put down 
ZAXXON, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, LT MUELLER has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail FENSTER 
GOLLY, Duelmaster of ALJAFIR!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in 
duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     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.  82ND ILLINOIS is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent 
the better part of last week avoiding 82ND ILLINOIS.  Indeed it was STORMY'S TROOPERS 
I.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
