                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly VEASTIAN games.  Former top team THE FAMILY was 
unseated this week as WOLF RIDERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 2-1-0 record for the round.  DART caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested TIRANIAN and was awarded 8 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, CAPTURED ORC put down TIRRAJ, causing him to 
lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, RAYEK has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to 
the grasp of the usurper.  All hail CUTTER, Duelmaster of VEASTIAN!  No confirmation, 
but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in VEASTIAN.  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

Dart -- It'd help if you would stand still and let me hit you, instead of darting
around and getting out of reach. -- Grinian

So, is this Captured Orc supposed to be TOUGH?  If all orcs are like this one, why
haven't they been exterminated? -- Tirraj

The Ambitious Guard needs to grow up some before he takes on REAL warriors. --

Fratsfans don't make good slaves, you know, because they're inclined to be arrogant.
