                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SOLVEN games.  LAWDY caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested STING and was awarded 22 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LAWDY put down STING, causing 
it to lose 20 points of recognition in the process.  Although DEJANNA KALM made a 
valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious THOME.  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In SOLVEN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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.-- 
Zontani Sharp Eyes

The most popular warrior was Out of Reach?  There's a potent metaphor in that. --
Jorja

Thome -- You may have devastated me, in fact, you DID devastate me, but the crowd
still prefers ME to you.  They like the moves of a human, as opposed to a golem. --
Gorlon Inthur

Balisong -- You're all over the place in one carnation or another.  If a golem can be
called an incarnation. -- Dejanna Kalm

Hen of Death -- Go with my good will.  Couldn't bring you to a winning record, but at
least you're tied and can leave for the Isle with your head moderately high. --
Korine Orles

Cranky Old Rooster -- You need to work on that mood.  It's unbecoming. -- Fedora
Linde
P.S.  How about a Cheerful Chick?

Chicken Guard -- Dratted bird. -- Lynnis Nall
