                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRICORUS games.  KAMILDSA caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested WHEN and was awarded 23 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, VENEMOUS CONCUBINE put down 
JUBHAL, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  The city has 
turned out in honor of HABU, for with its arena victory it may now lay claim to the 
highest position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in 
duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TRICORUS.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  DARK HORSEMEN is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of AMAZON ELITE are catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging 
board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For 
mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week WHEN, at 13-15-2, departed 
TRICORUS 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?  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 next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
