                                      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 DARQUE ANGELS was 
unseated this week as BASH BROS BABY moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-0-1 record for the round.  Did only my eyes note the 3-0-1 record which BASH 
BROS BABY managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw 
challengers!  LOUD TOYS caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested LONG-RANGE ARCHERS and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, CHAOS 101 put down DAISY, causing her to lose 4 
points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of SOVEREIGN, 
for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  
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.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
XOCHITHLAN these days is DUCKS UNLIMITED.  At least, most blades in town are looking 
to avoid them.  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 CHAOS WARRIORS. 
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  DOESN'T SLEEP take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in XOCHITHLAN.  A match that raised a few 
eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that CWM posted a challenge against the 
more highly recognized WOVERN YANSY.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand CWM 
beat WOVERN YANSY.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  
DOESN'T SLEEP has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  Walk 
proud, warriors of CHAOS WARRIORS!  By striking down KOKABIEL you have avenged the 
honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known to all in XOCHITHLAN.  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?  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Poops Through Diaper -- I was hoping your stenct and demeanor would disgust the fans.
-- Swan

Somebody threw the Bash Bros Baby to a Swamp Troll just because it was Oozing Drool?
That's... cold.  Of course, it's winter.

We salute the participants in the two most recent tourneys.  Anything to get out of
town for a weekend, eh? -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

Four-one and no standbys.  The age of miracles returns.  Amazing. -- Salome Torene
P.S.  I thought of doing a column, or even a few short lines, but, as usual, Jorja
waited until the last minute, nearly, to get us to do this stuff.  Some days, even
when you win, you don't win.

Scrooge McDuck -- Ha!  And I say again, HA! -- Horvanth Irnde

Peking Duck -- And when I finally GOT my dinner, it was COLD. -- Bettina Chim

Sovereign -- Damn straight I was vicious, I *felt* vicious.  I dislike fighting in
cold weather.  I dislike it a LOT. -- Salome Torene

Howard the Duck -- Believe it. -- Ulrik Venn
P.S.  It may not happen AGAIN, but believe it today.

Cwm -- That makes my day.  Heck, it makes the whole year for me, nearly. -- Wovern
Yansy, easily pleased

Assur -- How often are Mail-In Tournaments run?  Ware are the due dates (if known)?
-- Spectre
