                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SOLVEN games.  THOME caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested GORLON INTHUR and was awarded 15 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, VIRGINAL CONCUBINE 
put down DEJANNA KALM, causing her to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  
Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, LUGER has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of HEN OF DEATH, for with hers arena 
victory she may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe 
that over half of the old women in SOLVEN seem to feel that they could fight better 
than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In SOLVEN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition 
from those below.  HEN OF DEATH take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in 
SOLVEN.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 SOLVEN 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
