                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZENSU games.  My praise to BEYOND THE PALE for their 
3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  NOMAD caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested M. CHARDINEE and was awarded 14 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, SELVUN put down VERA DEMILO, causing her to lose 2 points of 
recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has STUBBY in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZENSU "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it 
but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after DEVILISH ANGEL.  Watch your 
back!  Give CARL THE TOOTH credit for his courage.  Did you note how he challenged 
DEVILISH ANGEL despite the 29 point difference in their rankings?  3 points of newly 
earned recognition and a dose of my admiration is what CARL THE TOOTH must now weigh 
against the defeat which resulted.   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ZENSU.  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

Stubby -- Well, you didn't take the title on a win, but at least you took it.  Guard
it well, as I know you will do. -- Tilarin

Nomad -- Have you ever thought that you might be better off if yoiu went back to
wandering around not fighting in the arena?  Sure, you MAY win "eternal" youth and
guaranteed resurrection, but then again, many strive and few succeed.  If you have
something to go back to, go now! -- Dellis Linz

Pacifist -- What a liar you are!  You are no WAY pacifisitic. -- Selvun
P.S.  Actually, that's kinda cool.

Carl the Tooth -- What, only ONE?  Where are your dozens in need of brushing?  Ah,
they rotted and fell out.  Well, it happens. -- Chuck Elvis

Vera Demilo -- Well, that's ONE friendship that isn't going to happen. -- Daceana
Linz
P.S.  Of course, since you're a golem, that wasn't really likely anyway.  I never
know what to say to golems.
