                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARVAT games.  Former top team DEVIL ADVOCATES was 
unseated this week as YOUNG STUDS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 3-2-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at SECRET SQUIRRELS' 
guildhouse after a 1-4-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 6th.  Dark 
Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness 
how this week B.I.G. went 3-1-1 to move up 6 in the rankings.  My praise to THE 
WALKING DEAD for their 5-0-1 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought 
round deserving of notice!  WHEELCHAIR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested DR. KLORD and was awarded 20 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BLOATED BARBARA put down 
CHICKEN SKIN, causing him to lose 18 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail GROUND CHUCK, Duelmaster of 
ARVAT!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  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 HOLD.  Watch your back!  I cannot but express pride for the fearlessness of 
AQUARIUM HEAD HERB who cast caution to the winds and challenged VENEER, a fighter 30 
points higher.  I must admit to some joy.  Before my very eyes the underdog in this 
contest, AQUARIUM HEAD HERB, defeated VENEER to claim victory and recognition.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Look no more for A. POLLY YONN in the arena or on the streets of 
ARVAT.  Hers fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 9-7-0.  BRAINS 
has sworn to take up religion upon living to tell of his recent bout with the Dark 
Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in ARVAT as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
