                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUWAYZA games.  HAMMER REVIEW caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CATFISH HUNTER and was awarded 
14 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HAMMER REVIEW put 
down CATFISH HUNTER, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Our 
last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VETERAN MERCENARY, and MOTHER GHEA 
NEWS has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With MOTHER GHEA NEWS clearing the 
throne, THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS of HOUSE BEAUTIFUL takes a proud seat as ZUWAYZA's new 
Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition points.  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.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  SEINFELD is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding SEINFELD.  Indeed it was MAN OR BEAST?.  Loose talk 
at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after EVERYBRIDE.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Three-two-one, a countdown.  A good win, Newt, and fare you well on the Isle.  We had
not sought to KILL Sir Francis, but it happens, as it happened the turn before when
the Drake killed Artist's Weekly.  This is practically symmetrical!  Do as you will,
