                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRICORUS games.  MOLOTOV caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested SHADOW ROSE and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MOLOTOV put down 
SHADOW ROSE, causing her to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
VETERAN MERCENARY made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious MOONDARK.  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.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in TRICORUS 
these days is VENTURE BROS..  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid 
them.  Apparently the stalwarts of CHUCK'S PINUPS are catching the bulk of jests down 
at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  ROWBOAT CAPTAIN take warning!  You have 
more than a few enemies in TRICORUS.  At the gambling halls I have started to bet 
money on THE CAPTAIN.  He has got the courage it takes.  Witness his challenge this 
turn against ROWBOAT CAPTAIN!  In the end THE CAPTAIN was overcame by ROWBOAT 
CAPTAIN, a "sharp" reminder that higher recognition is an indication of greater 
skill.  Still, it was a worthy bout!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in TRICORUS as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

The two next-up in points go inactive, and I take the title on points.  Seven fights
in the Dark Arena.  And seven fights in the Daylight Arena.  Four-one for us, with
the loss being to Lady Odd-affection.  And a distinctly embarrassing loss it is, too!
Congratulations to Eva on that win. -- Moondark
