                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly NIATOLI ISLAND games.  Former top team JAILBIRDS was 
unseated this week as RAVAGING LORDS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  SUPERIOR BAGGINS caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DUCK CREEK HAMMER and was awarded 15 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SUPERIOR BAGGINS put 
down DUCK CREEK HAMMER, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  
This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail SOCIETY RED, Duelmaster 
of NIATOLI ISLAND!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In NIATOLI ISLAND "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  NIATOLI ISLAND, city of gladiators!  Mighty 
among the names of thy guilds is RAVAGING LORDS, a guild shunned and avoided by many 
in the weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of ERRATA last week.  Busy avoiding RAVAGING LORDS?  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  THE CLAW take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in NIATOLI ISLAND.  For some warriors honor is not 
important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how NOLTE of JAILBIRDS challenged 
down 20 points to THE TUSKER.  The Fates are not kind to the cowardly, as evidenced 
by the fact that NOLTE was beat by THE TUSKER.  And who can now doubt that THE TUSKER 
is a hardy opponent?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
