                                      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.  SPINNING STAR caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested HUNGRY CAT and was 
awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SPINNING 
STAR put down HUNGRY CAT, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process. 
Not for nothing has KOBALT in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and 
this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources 
claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed 
weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In NIATOLI ISLAND "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  My hearty congratulations SPINNING STAR, for thy 
revenge upon HUNGRY CAT, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know 
better, eh?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is 
only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in NIATOLI ISLAND.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in 
a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
