                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZORPUNT games.  Former top team SHEWISH BUFFET was 
unseated this week as KRILL CAVALRY moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-1 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week KRILL CAVALRY went 4-1-1 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  A new guild, GENTLE THINGS, entered ZORPUNT with a clash this turn, 
showing off a 3-0-0 record.  Indeed, a worthy addition to the city guilds.  FUNKY 
DIABETIC caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested KOLMAN POOLE and was awarded 24 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, KHALHUMS DWARF put down WHAT?, causing him to lose 38 points of 
recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of POGO POLEN, for with 
his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Would 
you believe that over half of the old women in ZORPUNT seem to feel that they could 
fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZORPUNT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one 
reward--death.  This past week KOLMAN POOLE, at 11-15-1, departed ZORPUNT 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 ZORPUNT 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 next we meet remember:  a fool flies into 
a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani

Oh, joy.  Two-three, with the wins (of course) being over standbys.  One of the
losses was even to a standby!  Of course, those Loys have always been like that. --
