                                      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 ANARCHY was unseated 
this week as CUNNING RUNTS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-1 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon ANARCHY this time out who 
this turn suffered a fall into 6th position in the wake of a 0-0-0 round.  MINI ME 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested 
ORNAMENT and was awarded 25 points in recognition.  This time victory fell to the 
grasp of the usurper.  All hail PUBLIUS, Duelmaster of ZUWAYZA!  No confirmation, but 
my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ZUWAYZA.  ZUWAYZA, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is CUNNING RUNTS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Apparently the stalwarts of IDES OF MARCH are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For 
mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week ORNAMENT, at 11-19-0, 
departed ZUWAYZA forever.  This week in mortal passion MINI ME let the blood of 
ORNAMENT, sending one more soul into the void.  Retribution by THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS 
seems inevitable!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in ZUWAYZA as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Well, it would appear that the news-agent can't get the new magazines on my subscription list!  I'm looking into this, but who knows how long it will take to get his attention? -- Jorja, the (few) Magnificent Mags

Eric Cartman -- I don't know that you would really qualify as a runt, but I'm sure we could improve your image, if an image problem is what it is, by a little judicious ornamentation. -- Ornament

Al Byno -- The problem with wearing a lot of white is that it really shows the dirt. -- Trash Collector

Project XY -- You aren't modern at all.  You're practically REACTIONARY! -- Modern Scene

Our congratulations to Bart Simpson. -- Jorja and the Mags

Deep Thought -- No, sorry.  That would have to be a policy decision from the highest levels of the Commission, and they don't seem to see it as a problem.  Or, at least, as a problem greater than attempting to make changes would be.  The system isn't real
