                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZENSU!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team BEYOND THE PALE was 
unseated this week as RANDOM moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-1-0 record for the round.  MORK CALLING ORSON caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CHAD GORAM and was awarded 15 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MORK CALLING ORSON put down 
CHAD GORAM, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
MENDAL KORDIN made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious PRINCESS BUBBLEGUM.  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!   
     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.--

Shorty -- Would it do me any good to bat my eyelashes at you?  To me, you aren't
short at all. -- Cassie Donne

Duchess -- Were you looking for skills?  Maybe I should have drawn the fight out
longer. -- Korvin Ross, willing to accomdate

Princess Bubblegum -- You don't listen well, do you? -- Mendal Kordin

Big Chief -- I really don't like guys with undefeated records.  I mean, I tell myself

busy arena, but... I still don't like it. -- Chad Goram, trying for the "wet blanket"
effect

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
families. -- Gentleben (Sunset-21, Morya-28, Arvat-32 and Talahya-100)
