                                      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 3-2-0 to move up 4 in 
the rankings.  In one of the week's more notable duels, RAMBLING ROSE put down FLYING 
PIG, causing him to lose 2 points of recognition in the process.  Although VETERAN 
MERCENARY made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
JEHAN.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in KATI-TEI seem to feel 
that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in KATI-TEI these days is DA DOG POWNDAZ.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of HELL FROZEN OVER last week.  Busy avoiding DA DOG POWNDAZ?  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after DANCING SHADOW.  Watch your back!  I can not but mention with 
disdain the name of ARSENAL who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 9 
points below in the rankings.  I thought ARSENAL showed great skill and promise when 
he overcame WANDERING SHADE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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?  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
