                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly XOCHITHLAN games.  MASTEMA caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested WOVERN YANSY and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WAPPIOP OF GOP put 
down SELUNE STAREDGE, causing her to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  
Although BETTINA CHIM made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign 
of victorious MALICE.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  DUCKS UNLIMITED is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent 
the better part of last week avoiding DUCKS UNLIMITED.  Indeed it was DARQUE ANGELS.  
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 XOCHITHLAN.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the 
spires of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

It is good to be back.  Best of luck in 2014, Xochitlan.  Here we go! -- Lobo, mgr
SW2

Only six non-Dark Arena fights?  Cheese louise!  One World Blade and four Darque
Angels against us, not a standby in sight.  Although... we actually went two-three

against those tough dudes!  Coulda been worse. -- Horvanth Irnde, speaking for those
who walk the Middle Way
