                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JHANS games.  ANOTHER CLASSIC caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested RIRORNI SPY and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, OVERSTAND put down 
HELPFUL HANK, causing him to lose 5 points of recognition in the process.  As is 
fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none 
other than Duelmaster THIS CAMEL himself.  Not for nothing has THIS CAMEL 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 JHANS "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  JHANS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names 
of thy guilds is STILLMATIC, 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 BIG 
LAKE BULLIES last week.  Busy avoiding STILLMATIC?   
     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!  
     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!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are 
angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
