                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CLIFFHOME games.  KLYTIE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested DEMORIN SAI and was awarded 19 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MORDANT DESERTER put 
down FOREVER PORCH, causing it to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Due 
to his absence and inability to defend the throne, BLAZIKEN has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail RHAH, 
Duelmaster of CLIFFHOME!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in 
duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In CLIFFHOME "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in CLIFFHOME as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Blaziken -- Well, there you are.  Still duelmaster.  Works for me, so long as you
don't kill me. -- Taragon Tsor

Two-three, which is much better.  I like it... as a beginning of climbing out of our
pit.  True, Hyldai lost to the Dangerous Criminal, but as standbys go, that's one
tough cookie.  So we'll forgive her that. -- Demorin Sai

     If your cookies are tough, you're re-rolling the dough too often.
