                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly LAPUR games.  FIASA DERIGA caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested NEKODA and was awarded 18 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, FIASA DERIGA put down 
NEKODA, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail SPIN MCDUECAN, Duelmaster of 
LAPUR!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in LAPUR seem to feel that 
they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city LAPUR.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in LAPUR these 
days is THE TAKEN.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of BLACK 
SAMURAI last week.  Busy avoiding THE TAKEN?   
     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 LAPUR 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

We salute the White Rabbit, tourney victor and truly perverse and wicked bunny. --
Jorja and the Cardow Hunters, who are fancying rabbit stew tonight....

Shamrock Shamus -- It all comes down to experience, and I have more experience at
losing than you do.  So there. -- Windglass
P.S.  But I teach well.

Vagan -- What, you're a gladiator?  I thought you were a kind of food!  No wonder I
lost:  I was all set to throw in an egg, and you squashed it without a thought for
the possible life you might have destroyed.  Not that you WOULD have destroyed a
life, it was an unfertilized egg, but you didn't know that. -- Morning Thunder, going
off to comfort himself with bacon and fertilized (and fried) eggs

Grumblebone -- If that's the way it's got to be, okay.  But you'll be trying to get
the sand out of your armor for a WEEK. -- Sandstorm the penetrating

Draaf -- Have you no poetry in your soul?  No rhythm in your feet? -- Dancing Cat

I suggested to the Irritated Housewife that she come clean our guildhouse.  Wow!
That added a whole new dimension to her irritation. -- Red Mare, the team's only
winner today
