                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SUNSET games.  Former top team LUDUS MAGNUS was 
unseated this week as DEVIATION moved up from 8th ranking to take the top spot with a 
5-0-0 record for the round.  My praise to DEVIATION for their 5-0-0 week this time 
out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  HARDY caught the 
eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested WHIRLED PEACE and 
was awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CC 
RIDER put down SORROW, causing her to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  
Unwilling to wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster DRED Dark Arena Challenged 
BANDIT PRINCE last week in a match to decide the fate of the throne.  The crowds were 
amazed this turn, as BANDIT PRINCE killed the Duelmaster, DRED, leaving DARK AT HEART 
in mourning.  With bloody hand FATHOM JUMPER has ascended to the throne of champions. 
Is he that one which is spoken of in the ancient texts?  Would you believe that over 
half of the old women in SUNSET seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  SUNSET, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is DEVIATION, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of OMINOUS REIGN last week.  Busy avoiding DEVIATION?  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  KADOKA take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in SUNSET.  For some warriors honor is not 
important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how BLAKSKUL of GRIM FANDANGO 
challenged down 16 points to SLEDGEHEAD.  Few would not have guessed the outcome of 
the bout as SLEDGEHEAD was bested by BLAKSKUL.  Is this what passes for courage in 
SUNSET?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  This week marked the last days of PLAGUE who at 
9-14-0 was dispatched to the Dark Arena by the command of DARK AT HEART's demanding 
management.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one 
reward--death.  This past week KIPLING, at 13-12-0, departed SUNSET forever.  My 
hearty congratulations MUMRA SUSPENDERS, for thy revenge upon HELLER, slayer of thy 
fallen comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  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 SUNSET.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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.--
