Not much time today so this is going to be quick.  This was the last turn before the
tournament.  The tourney is due on 4/17 which is the duedate for this arena.  The run
date is 18 so it won't get done before the tournament.  Looks like a lot of warriors
will be in action.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TALCAMA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team CENTER FOR OLDS was 
unseated this week as SEA DOGS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-2-0 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon CENTER FOR OLDS this time out 
who this turn suffered a fall into 6th position in the wake of a 1-4-0 round.  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
SUPERIOR FORCES 6N went 5-0-1 to move up 7 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes note 
the 3-1-0 record which SKI-BUM 18 managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that 
such a record will draw challengers!  WHATAMONSTER caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THE CODDLER and was awarded 21 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WHATAMONSTER put down THE 
CODDLER, causing her to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Most watched 
of the fights this week, the spotlight was on SALLANCHE as it bore arms against the 
challenge of reigning Duelmaster BUBBLY BAALZEBUB.  The city has turned out in honor 
of SALLANCHE, for with its arena victory it may now lay claim to the highest position 
in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in TALCAMA seem to 
feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TALCAMA.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  CENTER FOR OLDS is feared.  This much I can say.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of GHOST RIDERS 
TOO last week.  Busy avoiding CENTER FOR OLDS?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  AZAER take warning!  You have more than a few enemies 
in TALCAMA.  For some warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  See, 
gladiators, how DEAD BOB of SKI-BUM 18 challenged down 18 points to AZAER.  All the 
city knows the duel went in favor of DEAD BOB.  I shall not fail to spread the word 
in other cities of this "mighty" victory.  ACHERON must really be harboring a grudge 
against the LUROCIAN PRIDE guild!  Merciless, 28 challenged down TOSHA points this 
week to duel with he.  The weight of the challenge fell hard upon TOSHA and 
predictably she was defeated by ACHERON.  This is how to arouse the anger of an 
entire guild!  As a gladiator gets older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of his 
heart.  True, DEE QOO?  Who could miss your "brave" challenge of DELION?  The Fates 
are not kind to the cowardly, as evidenced by the fact that DEE QOO was defeated by 
DELION.  And who can now doubt that DELION is a hardy opponent?   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Strange what qualities come forth in the 
face of certain doom.  RUNAWAY has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena 
victory!  This week in mortal passion LUCIFER let the blood of DETROIT DEVIL, sending 
one more soul into the void.  Retribution by THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD seems inevitable!  
Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a 
dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in TALCAMA.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen 
is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
