                                      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 MISFITS OF DOOM was 
unseated this week as MIDDLE WAY 15 moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  IRSON ORSON caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested VETERAN MERCENARY and was awarded 11 
points in recognition.  Due to hers absence and inability to defend the throne, FOXY 
LADY has lost the title of Duelmaster.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 
6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     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!  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

Three-two!  Better than last time.  Of course I lost to Foxy Lady, that was the
gallant thing to do, was it not?  Irson, curse him, drew a standby and won.  Makes
you wonder whose pockets he's greasing, except that I know for a fact--I checked--he
doesn't have a single copper.  If he had, I'd've borrowed it to take the Lady out for
a cup of coffee.  Ah, well. -- Farlin Meeks

Shmegal -- Little thing, aren't you?  Too bad you're a golem, they give me such a
grue. -- Nyssa Rye

Fitz -- Huh, I know what THAT means in a name.  It means "illegitimate son of."  And
I don't know whose son you are, but the second time you hit me in the belly, I knew
you were a ba-- um, illegitimate.  Am I allowed to use the b-word? -- Norm Riddle
