                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TALCAMA games.  Former top team OF WOLF AND MAN II was 
unseated this week as CENTER FOR OLDS moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-1 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week CENTER FOR OLDS went 3-2-1 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  My praise to SHEPHERDS for their 3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was 
a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  CARBONATED MILK caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested OPEN BAR and was awarded 
19 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HARBOR MASTER put 
down BEDDER, causing him to lose 17 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
DESTITUTE NOBLE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious SUSHI.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in TALCAMA seem 
to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TALCAMA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in TALCAMA these days is GET OUTTA MY WAY.  At least, most blades in town are looking 
to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of SHEPHERDS last week.  Busy avoiding GET OUTTA MY WAY?  Loose talk at the 
arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are 
after FREE PORN.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of 
certain doom.  BOATSWAIN has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  
I must report the passing of OPEN BAR, veteran of many duels.  8-7-0 final record Its 
was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets 
and assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil 
always!   
     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 we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
