                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUWAYZA games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week JAGUAR WARRIORS went 3-0-2 to move 
up 3 in the rankings.  FLAVIUS VALERIUS caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested TIPPY and was awarded 14 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, FLAVIUS VALERIUS put down TIPPY, causing her 
to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp 
of the usurper.  All hail DARDANIUS, Duelmaster of ZUWAYZA!  No confirmation, but my 
sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in ZUWAYZA these days is THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  At least, most blades in 
town are looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild 
it was that spent the better part of last week avoiding THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  Indeed 
it was IDES OF MARCH.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those 
below.  BRUTUS take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in ZUWAYZA.  I can not 
but mention with disdain the name of FINESSE who this week posted a challenge to a 
warrior a full 8 points below in the rankings.  I thought FINESSE showed great skill 
and promise when he was beat by JEWEL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!  
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 ZUWAYZA.  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

P.S.  Responding is free, it is only the advertisers who must pay.

You have not truly seen the beauties of the land until you've seen them from above.

P.S.  The birds understand this.

Teerapong -- I believe I will start a new section, on "Local Disasters."  You might
feature in the first one, I think. -- Times

Ah, the Captured Orc, young Harney Mock.  He doesn't have the sense to get out of the
road when a carriage is coming! -- Hot Rod
P.S.  I nearly broke the axle when I went over him, though.  He needs to lose weight.

As to the "offer you can't refuse," well, we'll just have to wait and see. -- Hot Rod
