                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARVAT games.  Did only my eyes note the 3-0-0 record 
which ANGELS OF PAIN managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record 
will draw challengers!  COMATOSE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested ABBIE DONN and was awarded 17 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, COMATOSE put down ABBIE DONN, 
causing her to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Although EAST TO WEST 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious AGONY.  
Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without 
pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ARVAT.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  DEVIL ADVOCATES is feared.  This much I can say.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of ANGELS OF 
PAIN last week.  Busy avoiding DEVIL ADVOCATES?  Loose talk at the arena has reached 
my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after LOU C. FIRR.  
Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Look no more for SPURIUS in the arena or 
on the streets of ARVAT.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one 
at 8-10-2.  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 ARVAT 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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--
