                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRICORUS games.  IDONEA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested SAND GIANT and was awarded 11 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, IDONEA put down SAND GIANT, 
causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has ICE 
CREAM MAN in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women 
in TRICORUS seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  TRICORUS, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is VAN DUEL, a guild shunned and avoided by many 
in the weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that 
spent the better part of last week avoiding VAN DUEL.  Indeed it was AMAZON ELITE.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     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
