                                 SUMMARY COMMENTS

 1.  Big News!!!!  Bullpen Ace gets ten big points for a DA kill of Cream-O-Crop
Crip; Slugbait(tw) gets ten big points as a champion for his bloodfeud kill of
Kortalia.  Congrats to Crip ROYAL FLUSH) and Mad Max(I HATE THEM).
2.  Whoa!  The Dark One, manager of They Must Die, continues his DA ways with a 1-4-
0-4 turn and "leading" the contest with 7 deaths.
 3.  Tripwire (OF WOLF AND MAN) gets ten big points for Spyreport mentions.  He now
leads the competition with 22 total points from a mere mention.
 4.  Slugbait(tm) of MYSTIC ORC FEAST has the best fight round this turn with a 4-1-
1-0 giving him 10.
 5.  KAOS (Grim) (4-0-0) had the only undefeated team.  Probably if he had fought his
hiding Vynmorgath he would have suffered a loss?  Good strategy, Grim.
 6.  SECOND BANANAS (Mannequin) had the most stylemaster points with six.  Having the
Duelmaster helped.
 7. The point total spread between 1st and 2nd widened a little more with SCOMSSS
Shire's great fight-point round of 28 (44 total).  No Teams for them scored negative
points in their 23-13-2 round.

     Wins 15 (Mannequin, Oz)
     W/L Record 14-4-0 .778 (Grim)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SCOMSS SWAMP!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team SECOND BANANAS was 
unseated this week as LAND OF OZ moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 5-0-0 record for the round.  OF WOLF AND MAN bore the brunt of major assault on 
their standings this week as they dropped to 24th position as the result of going 
1-4-0!  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of CHEERS.  How else weeks like 
this one's 4-1-0?  How else the sudden move to 25th team?  My praise to THE OPERA for 
their 4-0-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving 
of notice!  BAAL caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested STREET LEGAL and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, MY SHADOW put down SGT STANDANKO, causing him to lose 
15 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling to wait upon the will of others, 
Duelmaster NILES challenged KODIAK last week in a match to decide the fate of the 
throne.  The city has turned out in honor of KODIAK, for with hers arena victory she 
may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  No confirmation, but my 
sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city SCOMSS SWAMP.  SCOMSS SWAMP, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names 
of thy guilds is KAOS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  If 
you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of THE 
BEAR'S PAW last week.  Busy avoiding KAOS?  Loose talk at the arena has reached my 
ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after JUSTICE FOR ALL.  
Watch your back!  JACK KNIFE must really be harboring a grudge against the OF WOLF 
AND MAN guild!  Merciless, 16 challenged down ORCO points this week to duel with he.  
The weight of the challenge fell hard upon ORCO and predictably he was bested by JACK 
KNIFE.  This is how to arouse the anger of an entire guild!  As a gladiator gets 
older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of his heart.  True, MEDEE?  Who could miss 
your "brave" challenge of ITHYIC THING?  Few would not have guessed the outcome of 
the bout as ITHYIC THING was defeated by MEDEE.  Is this what passes for courage in 
SCOMSS SWAMP?  I cannot but express pride for the fearlessness of STORM who cast 
caution to the winds and challenged JUSTICE FOR ALL, a fighter 30 points higher.  
Truth to tell, STORM did not come out of the fight a winner, but she managed to 
capture much attention, gaining 3 in recognition.  Give FGC credit for his courage.  
Did you note how he challenged NIKKO despite the 33 point difference in their 
rankings?  In the end FGC was beat by NIKKO, a "sharp" reminder that higher 
recognition is an indication of greater skill.  Still, it was a worthy bout!  For 
some warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how 
DEMONIC HEX of GOTHIC MINISTRY challenged down 32 points to LABATTS.  All the city 
knows the duel went in favor of DEMONIC HEX.  I shall not fail to spread the word in 
other cities of this "mighty" victory.  BAPHOMASHER must really be harboring a grudge 
against the THE MIDDLE WAY 3 guild!  Merciless, 18 challenged down VELMA XAVIL points 
this week to duel with he.  The weight of the challenge fell hard upon VELMA XAVIL 
and predictably she lost to BAPHOMASHER.  This is how to arouse the anger of an 
entire guild!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  JETHRO has sworn to take up religion 
upon living to tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing 
indeed!  I must report the passing of SKYDANCER, veteran of many duels.  2-7-1 final 
record Hers was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  My condolences to 
DARQUE FORCES for their loss of a very promising warrior, SSCOMSS.  SSCOMSS went to 
doom before the arms of EARVLING KLASH, a warrior of FORCE OF WILL.  Many townsmen 
have begin to remark over the fact that after one more round of duels ABYSMAL RITES' 
Bloodfeud against BLACKENED will have expired.  Walk proud, warriors of THE OPERA!  
By striking down ELIAS you have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known 
to all in SCOMSS SWAMP.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with 
fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in SCOMSS SWAMP.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the 
spires of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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
