                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CLIFFHOME games.  THE COWS AFOOT caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KEVSILESSA KIRO and was 
awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, THE COWS 
AFOOT put down KEVSILESSA KIRO, causing her to lose 17 points of recognition in the 
process.  Although UNCUT HARE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious ZANDER.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
CLIFFHOME seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
