                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly FRATSFA games.  MIST caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested KHALHUMS DWARF and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ANUBIS put down 
LACERATED TONGUE, causing it to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has MERLIN in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
he's proven his combat skill yet again.  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 FRATSFA.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in FRATSFA 
these days is INCARNATIONS.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them. 
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding INCARNATIONS.  Indeed it was OTTO'S PARTS.  Loose talk at the 
arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are 
after RAIN.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this 
week, it seems that BROKEN HEART posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized RAIN.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand BROKEN HEART was 
overcame by RAIN.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  
     The girls are as pretty in FRATSFA as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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.--
