                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZENSU games.  Former top team OLDER BY FAR was 
unseated this week as CAPTAIN PLANET moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-3-0 record for the round.  MARLIN KOLE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested I SAY NO and was awarded 15 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MARLIN KOLE put down I SAY NO, 
causing it to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has 
RHOMBA in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven 
hers 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.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  CAPTAIN PLANET is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of OLDER BY FAR are catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging 
board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  HEART take warning!  You have more than a few enemies 
in ZENSU.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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 ZENSU.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The 
wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
