      The Khalhums Dwarf DARED to contest with ME for the title!  How outrageous.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZENSU games.  STROKE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TILARIN and was awarded 15 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DELLIS LINZ put down JUNKYARD 
DOG, causing it to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has 
O. POSTE in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven 
his combat skill yet again.  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.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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!   
     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 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
