                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JHANS games.  THE LIMITER caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BLACKWIND and was awarded 23 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, THE LIMITER put down 
BLACKWIND, causing him to lose 20 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
KILLER INSTINCT made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious BLOOD THIRSTER.  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 JHANS.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in JHANS these 
days is ENGINES 'O' DEATH.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of 
ERRATA last week.  Busy avoiding ENGINES 'O' DEATH?  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after IRON 
MAN.  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I 
have seen men cut down in their prime.  This week FRIENDLY FIRE must mourn the loss 
of 14-8-0 KILLER INSTINCT to VOW TO DESTROY.  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!  
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in JHANS.  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

One morning when big round Mr. Sun was climbing up in the sky and Old Mother West
Wind had sent all her Merry Little Breezes to play in the Green Meadows, Johnny Chuck
started out for a walk.  First he sat up very straight and looked and looked all
around to see if Reddy Fox was anywhere about, for you know Reddy Fox liked to tease
Johnny Chuck. -- from Thornton Burgess' "Peter Rabbit Plays a Joke" (more to follow
next turn if ya'll are still silent)
