                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly XOCHITHLAN games.  Former top team CRIMINAL ELEMENT 
was unseated this week as KIWI CONNECTION moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-1 record for the round.  RATA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested MATT RISIDE and was awarded 30 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, XYOKOR YAHL put down 
MS D. MEENER, causing her to lose 24 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
IPSWICH made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
MANN SLAUGHTER.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained 
their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city XOCHITHLAN.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I 
have seen men cut down in their prime.  This week CRIMINAL ELEMENT must mourn the 
loss of 15-7-0 MATT RISIDE to KIWI CONNECTION.  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 XOCHITHLAN.  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 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

Maglor -- Your father raised you with some strange notions, boy. -- Saml Tyne

Matt Riside -- Listen, if you need to practice, I can point out some good targets. --
Xyokor Yahl

Kahr, Jack -- Listen, you have to be CAREFUL with that carriage of mine!  It's got a
couple of little problems, some weak spokes in the near wheel, and I'm worried about
the rear axle, and the springs, well, the less said about them, the better.  But if
you take it and go joy-riding over some of the roads around here, you'll be walking
back.  And I *need* it, so don't go far anyway, okay? -- Timor Unred

Asquith -- Darned elf. -- Fallon Grimm

Mercy-Departed -- Really?  I didn't even know it had been here to begin with. --
Quita Rosala

Matt Riside -- It was an accident.  I think you just ducked into a blow. -- Xyokor
Yahl

Fizban -- You absolutely make my day. -- Jorja
P.S.  I get all excited at the way your eyebrows bristle.
