                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SOLVEN games.  Former top team SERPENTS HOLD was 
unseated this week as ARE YOU ? moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
2-1-0 record for the round.  HOLM JOUBERT caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested VETERAN MERCENARY and was awarded 11 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LEIA put down LULU ORLENE, 
causing her to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has ROMO 
in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week it's proven its 
combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  LULU ORLENE take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in SOLVEN.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 SOLVEN as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

Romo -- That was okay.  Golems give me a grue, and I didn't feel inclined to write a
column, so it's a good thing I lost, isn't it? -- Gilly Manderson
P.S.  And four skills learned is also good.  Thanks.

Kung-Fu.  Ack.  I don't care for that.  In fact, as a guy big enough to do it the
hard way, I don't like it at all. -- Holm Joubert

Manic Depression -- I kept waiting for you to switch over to the "depression" mode,
and you kept delaying it.  That was annoying.  Next time, get depressed more quickly,
okay? -- Medan Quizzar, basically lazy

Most of the Polite Beggars I meet tend to contact me by mail.  Or phone.  But they
all want the same thing:  money. -- Lulu Orlene, who works for hers

Love or Confusion -- Yep, you can say THAT again. -- Farlin Meeks
