                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUWAYZA games.  Former top team JAGUAR WARRIORS was 
unseated this week as FUNKY FOLK moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot with 
a 2-0-0 record for the round.  JILL OPPY caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested SPORTS III and was awarded 13 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, JILL OPPY put down SPORTS III, 
causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has SUE 
SHE in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven 
hers combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me 
that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZUWAYZA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in ZUWAYZA these days is JAGUAR WARRIORS.  At least, most blades in town are looking 
to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of FUNKY FOLK are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  SPORTS III take warning!  You have 
more than a few enemies in ZUWAYZA.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  
     The girls are as pretty in ZUWAYZA as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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
