     MINE MINE ALL MINE!!  Muhahaha!!!  My manager told me not to bother getting
excited because I wouldn't be around long.. I'll prove him wrong!!  Thanks for the
fight and grats on being a Lord Protector, Yuedebahl.  Well, now that I'm up here I
don't plan on leaving.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SUNSET games.  My tutors were fond of telling me that 
the higher you rise the harder you fall.  This week NOMADIC TRIBE went 2-3-1 and fell 
11 notches into 14th!  DARK AT HEART bore the brunt of major assault on their 
standings this week as they dropped to 17th position as the result of going 0-2-0!  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
BEN & JERRY'S went 3-1-0 to move up 9 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 
3-1-0 record which GOLGOTHA'S BLOOMS managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that 
such a record will draw challengers!  TIME caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested OPHELIA DELPHI and was awarded 23 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TIME put down OPHELIA DELPHI, 
causing her to lose 17 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling to wait upon 
the will of others, Duelmaster WILD challenged YODLE LAYHE WHO last week in a match 
to decide the fate of the throne.  Not for nothing has WILD in the past laid claim to 
the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  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 SUNSET.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  GRIM FANDANGO is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of BEN'S BAZAAR 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.  BARBARIC SMURF take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in SUNSET.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it 
seems that BOORAY posted a challenge against the more highly recognized PIETROS.  The 
results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand BOORAY was defeated by PIETROS.  Remember 
warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     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 JONISSON, at 17-32-1, 
departed SUNSET forever.  Walk proud, warriors of KANO CLAN!  By striking down CHUNKY 
MONKEY you have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known to all in 
SUNSET.  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 SUNSET 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 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

Am really just tickled to see how easy it is to influence all of you.  Fifteen (15!
of 'em) lungers ran last turn in response to all the Aimers from previous turns, no
doubt.  This is exciting!  Now it's the Aimers that are looking to duck and hide.
Poor babies.  Oh, how events can turn so quickly. -- Kano

Nomad -- Are you that stupid?  Seriously, man?  Does your level of intel even
approach room temp?  If you profess to have been involved with this game for as long
as I suspect, then you know full well an Aimer beats a TP about 99 times out of a
hundred.  Even a stupid Aimer like yours.  Stupid is as stupid does in your case
apparently.

Look, I've held conversations in the past with even the greenest novice that knows a
stupid Aimer is just totally asinine.  How close to the bottom on any scale of
competence does that place you, pal?  It's a good thing that no one in the history of
Duel is using your mysterious numbers for determining fight style.

Now with respect to "Kano-ish!" -- ROTFLMBO!!  That's a good one.  Really, I'm so
happy to see I'm irritating you.  Believe me, exposing your display of self-righteous
arrogance to others is my pleasure indeed. -- Kano

Nomad -- Am prepared to say with some reasonable sense of certainty that I'm probably
twice your age or there abouts. So shut your filthy pie hole about anyone's age,
youngster, because you're demonstrating beyond any questionable notion your own
teenage tendencies.  Your marked inability to argue with any reason or substance is
both childish and moronic.  I continue to point out facts relating to your
incompetence and you continue to respond with drivel and nonsense. -- Kano

ALL -- I suspect that this Nomad character is fully aware of the concepts dealing
with wearing armor versus taking damage or warrior performance versus the wearing of
armor, yet he continues to act ignorant and ridicule others as though he knows
better.  Perhaps he's incapable of comprehending these basics?  Perhaps he's bought
into some sort of propoganda how armor doesn't protect against damage?  I dunno.
Maybe he just needs to be educated concerning the advantages and disadvantages of
warriors wearing armor in the arena?  I leave him to your capable hands in order to
provide his instruction and guidance.  He is much too far beneath me at this point.
Perhaps there can be hope for his kind some day. -- Kano

Jonnisson -- Ech!  You're really old.  Sorry that I pushed you down on your hip like
that but, you swung first. -- Grey Fatal

Level of -- Hats off. -- Sam Byck

Varro -- I know I'm not all that recognizable to them, but the commission makes some
silly matches do they not?  Good luck in your fighting career, young one. --
Bloodsong

Sword Opera -- Okay!  Okay!  Listen, Divas!  I am a SONG not a singer!  Get off my
back already. -- BloodSONG

Barbaric Smurf -- You are not my father.  I will never go to the blue side. -- Edulfo
Papa

Cerryl -- Another one for our side.  I hope the devil carried you well the evening
after. -- Edulfo Papa

All -- I hope to see you after this world mingles with the other. -- Poca, the
rotting

Bix -- Try avoiding me if you do not want to taste my blade for a third time. --
Pietros

     Needs salt, if you're going to try tasting it.

Elise Isla -- That wasn't personal, baby; it's just business. -- Spartacus

Hroloc the Hun -- The Champion of Capua is rising again. -- Crixus

Where in Hades did all these Smurfs come from, I think I just stepped on one...got
blue goo all over my sandle. -- Spartacus

Jupiter's c%@#, the heat in this city is oppressing...slave, bring me more wine and
send in the fan ladies.  Life is hard for a lanistae. -- Quintus Batiatus

Ikillu -- Welcome back.  Go on witchyabadself. -- Stik

Barca -- I needed that, I tell you! -- Punksure

Ninja Barbie -- A good challenge on your part, I suppose.  I hate getting beat by a
posable doll in tabby boots... -- L.W.

Foiler -- Oooh, skills!  Hurray for me! -- Helrazor

Grass Seed -- Well that was a fun 4 minutes, anyways...better luck next time, kid. --
Blakskul

Well, of my four sent to the tourney, the new guy didn't make it back, and my plan to
add to the AB conspiracy was foiled.  Please welcome a fun-lovin' little gal to the
sands, Halo! -- Stik and G.F.

Ben -- Nice 3-turn.  I want that. -- Stik

Nomad -- LOL!  Nice impression!  I don't think he could've put on much more armor,
sometimes when your time is up, it's up.  You forgot one important point, though.
You've got to rudely/blindly break arena etiquette and broadcast my warrior's
fighting style, armor and weapons choices to the whole arena in the PA you send in.
Oh, maybe it's 'cause he's dead that you didn't.  That figures.  Just FYI, anyway! ;)
-- Stik

Hmm, it appears ABs are aaaall the way down to 7th on the style list, and what's that
at #1 now?!?  It's...it's....LUNGERS!!!  Alert the Gladiatorial Commission!!  Foul
play!  Run for the hills!!!!!!  Or, just go on about your business.

Hey!  Who let Yuedebahl Litha graduate?!  Congrats! -- The Tribe

Barbaric Smurf -- You were not one of those I was avoiding.  It appears I may need to
rethink that plan.  Nice win. -- Walli

Crixus -- I think it was luck.  That is my stance.  Or perhaps it was more of a
sitting position, or even prone on the sands.  But still my stance.  It was luck,
right? -- Hroloc

Rocksie Rhodes -- I think you just ruined a wonderful desert.  It isn't as if getting
smacked upside the head wasn't bad enough! -- Batwamba

Wheelbarrow -- Okay, you win that one.  But we will do that again sometime and with a
much different result. -- Lupus Major

Moshi Haru -- Thanks, I have been wanting that fight! -- Yodle Layhe Who

Walli Weeble -- That is how it is done in Smurfville. -- Barbaric Smurf

Helrazor -- Awesome fight...shitty skills...well...shitty on my part. -- The Foiler

Sledgehead -- Hey!  Dude!  There is a sledge in your head!  Can you hear the words
that are coming out of my mouth?  Dude!  Nevermind... -- Speedo Smurf

Like Water -- Like sands through the hour glass...these are the swords that I hit you
with...pretty aren't they? -- Ninja Barbie

     Very... pink.

Blood and Sand -- I am guessing you are gunning for me this turn trying to take top
team...good luck. -- Ben's Bazaar

Wild -- You wild and crazy girl, congrats on the throne. -- Ben's Bazaar

Bloodsong -- We agree.  Learning to project our lines to the uppermost tier of the
stands doesn't do a bit of good in the win-loss area, when the lines in question are
all "ouch!" with variations. -- the Sword Opera cast

It looks to us like we went oh-five this turn, and we're too embarrassed to write
individual personals to those who defeated us (one was even a standby!).  So, to
those who defeated us, good fight.  Wish we could have done better. -- We at the
Sword Opera who lost to you
