                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly LYRATILAN games.  Former top team PRIMATES-R-US was 
unseated this week as THE MIDDLE WAY 4 moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which THE 
MIDDLE WAY 4 managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw 
challengers!  MARV ELLIS caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested CONSERVATORY and was awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, MARV ELLIS put down CONSERVATORY, causing her to lose 
10 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend 
the throne, JUNGLE JIM has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in 
honor of ROBIN STORZ, for with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to the 
highest position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
LYRATILAN seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     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 LYRATILAN these days is PRIMATES-R-US.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of FUNKY FOLK are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  CONSERVATORY take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in LYRATILAN.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in LYRATILAN.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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 Sharp Eyes
