                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KATI-TEI games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week WANDERERS went 3-2-1 to move up 3 in 
the rankings.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ENGLISH BULLDOG put down 
SKELLIE, causing it to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, THE WAIT has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of SYKLONE SEQUEL, for with his arena 
victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city KATI-TEI.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  THE PLAGUE is feared.  This much I can say.  Methinks more 
than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last week 
avoiding THE PLAGUE.  Indeed it was DA DOG POWNDAZ.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after BALIN 
CHANE.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, 
it seems that DEVIL DOG posted a challenge against the more highly recognized BALIN 
CHANE.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand DEVIL DOG won victory over BALIN 
CHANE.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I can not but mention 
with disdain the name of WROLLING THUNDER who this week posted a challenge to a 
warrior a full 8 points below in the rankings.  I thought WROLLING THUNDER showed 
great skill and promise when he lost to SAMARA.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     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 KATI-TEI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can 
I keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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
