                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SOLVEN games.  HOWIE B. GONE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THE HONEST MERCHANT and was 
awarded 22 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ROCKIT 
put down FIRE, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail NYSSA RYE, Duelmaster of SOLVEN!  
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.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in SOLVEN these days is ARE YOU ?.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of 80'S DISCO are catching the bulk 
of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     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!   
     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 next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Two-three, and at least the new guy came out of the kitchen long enough to bean a
Beggar with a saucepan. -- Nyssa Rye
P.S.  Apparently today we don't even have the OPTION of writing more.  Bummer, I'm
sure we would have found something to say.  Oh, well, next time.
