                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CLIFFHOME games.  Former top team GREYHAWK was 
unseated this week as FIRE DECK moved up from 6th ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-2-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week FIRE DECK went 3-2-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  
Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 record which JINDA-BAN managed to post this round?  I 
don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  ENTEI caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested SHOTGUN! (SO GOOD) and was 
awarded 17 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, THE 
USEROUS MERCHANT put down BALLOU YS, causing her to lose 1 points of recognition in 
the process.  Although WALDO made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious DARK TYPHLOSION.  Informants "close" to the city champion have 
told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In CLIFFHOME "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and 
it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after DINGIL BILL.  Watch your 
back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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 CLIFFHOME.  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 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
