                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SOLVEN games.  KORINE ORLES caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested CIVILIZED CRIMINAL and was 
awarded 12 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
EMBEZZLING HEN put down LYNNIS NALL, causing her to lose 3 points of recognition in 
the process.  Although CRANKY OLD ROOSTER made a valiant effort, it did not suffice 
to topple the reign of victorious JULES.  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 SOLVEN.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in SOLVEN these 
days is HENPCS.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of SERPENTS 
HOLD last week.  Busy avoiding HENPCS?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Was I the only one shocked to see the well respected fighter TOXIN 
(2-0-1) appear on the sands of the Dark Arena?  It is now dead.  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 SOLVEN.  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are 
angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
