                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JHANS games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week TOLBINS HIVE D went 5-0-1 to move up 
4 in the rankings.  DRONE D5 caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested CHEETAH VON TEESE and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, DRONE D5 put down CHEETAH VON TEESE, causing 
her to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, ONE TRICK PONY has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail DRONE D5, Duelmaster of 
JHANS!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in JHANS these days is STILLMATIC.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding STILLMATIC.  Indeed it was BIG LAKE 
BULLIES.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  DRONE D2 
take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in JHANS.  At the gambling halls I 
have started to bet money on KULICK.  He has got the courage it takes.  Witness his 
challenge this turn against DRONE D2!  In the end KULICK was defeated by DRONE D2, a 
"sharp" reminder that higher recognition is an indication of greater skill.  Still, 
it was a worthy bout!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of 
certain doom.  DRONE D3 has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  
Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies 
against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
