                                      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.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 
record which THE SEWING CIRCLE managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a 
record will draw challengers!  HUNGRY CAT caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested SHARK BAIT and was awarded 20 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KHALHUMS DWARF put down 
MONOLYTH, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  The city has 
turned out in honor of DIRTY HOWEL, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim 
to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in NIATOLI ISLAND seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In NIATOLI ISLAND "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 NIATOLI ISLAND 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 next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
