                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SNOWBOUND games.  Former top team MIDDLE WAY 6 was 
unseated this week as MESOPOTAMIA moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 3-2-0 record for the round.  BLIND REF caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested CUNEIFORM and was awarded 15 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BLIND REF put down CUNEIFORM, 
causing her to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Due to hers absence and 
inability to defend the throne, JENNA KUUL has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The 
city has turned out in honor of BLIND REF, for with his arena victory he may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the 
old women in SNOWBOUND seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators? 
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city SNOWBOUND.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  BASH BROS HOCKEY 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 BASH BROS HOCKEY.  Indeed it was MESOPOTAMIA.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Folks, I am leaving Duel II for personal reasons.  I have no idea whether I may 
return, but don't count on it.  I will remain active in Lapur (29) and Jade Mountain 
(75), and that's it.  I have enjoyed knowing you.  Fare you well. -- Jorja
