                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZENSU!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  MARLIN KOLE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested I SAY NO and was awarded 17 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MARLIN KOLE put down I SAY NO, 
causing it to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Although RHOMBA made a 
valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious HEARING AID.  
Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole 
city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZENSU "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this 
week's challenge seeking began.  BEYOND THE PALE is feared.  This much I can say.  If 
you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of OLDER BY 
FAR last week.  Busy avoiding BEYOND THE PALE?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Rite of Bloodfeud must forever be reserved for 
teams with honor.  Witness ZENSU!  CAPTAIN PLANET has failed to revenge the slaying 
of fallen DIRTY COAL.  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 - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
