                                      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 CENTER FOR OLDS was 
unseated this week as HIP HOP HEROES moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  KILL KITTEN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CAFFREY and was awarded 21 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CONVICTED ASSASSIN put down 
FINN MACCOOL, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  The city 
has turned out in honor of COCKEYED UMBRELLA, for with his arena victory he may now 
lay claim to the highest position in the city!  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TALCAMA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I have seen men cut down in 
their prime.  This week RYAN'S HENCHMEN must mourn the loss of 9-6-1 CAFFREY to 
ARDUIN GRIMOIRE.  Cruelly, KILL KITTEN of ARDUIN GRIMOIRE has slain the lesser ranked 
CAFFREY.  Word already flies around town that RYAN'S HENCHMEN plans a bloodfeud!  
Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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 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
