                                      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 CSU COLLEGE RADIO was 
unseated this week as BEYOND THE PALE moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-3-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week ADVENTURE TIME 2 went 2-0-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  MARCELINE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she 
skillfully bested NINA STENN and was awarded 14 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, MARCELINE put down NINA STENN, causing her to lose 10 
points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has KORVIN ROSS in the past 
laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ZENSU.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  
EBBUTT MARSH take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in ZENSU.  A match that 
raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that EARL OF LEMONGRAB posted 
a challenge against the more highly recognized EBBUTT MARSH.  The results, you ask?  
Well, the firebrand EARL OF LEMONGRAB beat EBBUTT MARSH.  Remember warriors, this is 
the discipline of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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 next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a 
rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani

We went two-three, and it's an IMPROVEMENT?  Gods.  Plus, I take three slots on the
front page: duelmaster, chartered recognition leader, and popularity leader, on a

LOSS to a standby.  Small Arena Syndrome operating synergistically Tourney Prep.
It's embarrassing, but I'd rather be an embarrassed duelmaster than proud corpse. --
