                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ALJAFIR games.  Fortune did not smile upon MIDDLE WAY 
this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 8th position in the wake of a 0-5-0 
round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week SHEWISH LEFTOVERS went 2-3-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  Did only my 
eyes note the 3-1-0 record which ROYAL PAIN managed to post this round?  I don't 
doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  QUEEN CRIMSON caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested GARRET JONES and was awarded 
20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KENNY CHESTNEY 
put down VLAD ATTITUDE, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  
Not for nothing has LEAD BELLY in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and 
this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half 
of the old women in ALJAFIR 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.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after ULTRO 
PINKY.  Watch your back!   
     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?  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

One-four again, yet again, and, again, it was *me* who got the win.  *I* got the win,
if that is grammatically more acceptable, not that *I* care about such things.  A man
