                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly IAYE games.  My praise to RED DOG GANG for their 4-1-0 
week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  
WINDSONG caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully 
bested VIRGINAL CONCUBINE and was awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, THE HONEST MERCHANT put down OZZIE CANSECO, causing him to 
lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, NULN has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in 
honor of JACK STRAW, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  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 IAYE these days is GAMEHENDGE.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of LENPROS 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.  FRANKLINS TOWER take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in IAYE.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  PRIVATE PERNA must hold silent, for this week he 
was humbled in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by FENCE POST of RED DOG GANG. 
Hail FENCE POST for thy victory!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in IAYE.  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.
