                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZENSU games.  BUTTERED BEAVER caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DARRON LINZ and was awarded 45 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BUTTERED BEAVER put 
down DARRON LINZ, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Most 
watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on BLONDE GRENADE as she bore arms 
against the challenge of reigning Duelmaster CRAZY TRAIN.  This time victory fell to 
the grasp of the usurper.  All hail BLONDE GRENADE, Duelmaster of ZENSU!  Would you 
believe that over half of the old women in ZENSU seem to feel that they could fight 
better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ZENSU.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms 
the knowledge that many fighters are after BLONDE GRENADE.  Watch your back!  A match 
that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that BLOOD BATH posted a 
challenge against the more highly recognized JENIPHER.  The results, you ask?  Well, 
the firebrand BLOOD BATH was overcame by JENIPHER.  Remember warriors, this is the 
discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
