                                      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 LUROCIAN ROYALTY was 
unseated this week as THE FAMILY moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 3-2-0 record for the round.  ELDARRAN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested VAISTINIE and was awarded 15 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, STEEL SPAR put down PRINCESS 
EMILY II, causing her to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
SENJIRO made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
PRINCE CONNOR.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never 
fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In VEASTIAN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 VEASTIAN.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  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.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Xargoth -- Darned if I know how that worked out.  You'd think we were a fairly even
match, though I do have more experience in losing.  Could be a case of skills making
the difference, because I do *not* see any reason for that turn-around in the middle
of the fight.  It isn't like I had a separate desperation strategy that could kick
in. -- Senjiro

Marius -- Yes, you won, but I think you might have been trying too hard.  That
"thrashes out, striking nothing," I'm told that means a) not enough attack skills,
and/or b) running too fast. -- Lirvenz
P.S.  Well, and maybe c) senselessly seeking a kill.

Aeropearl -- Oh, just heck. -- Bitt Betro

Steel Spar -- What is it with you Bretheren and flailing?  You can't be that badly
off for attack skills. -- Vaistinie

The Convicted Thief should have chosen a different line of work.  Ditch-digging,
maybe. -- Kenseljo

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
