                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ROCANIS games.  Former top team INCONSISTENT FURY was 
unseated this week as MIDDLE WAY 20 moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  CHEBOB ERLE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested RATHNOK MULROOT and was awarded 21 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CHEBOB ERLE put down 
RATHNOK MULROOT, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Due to 
its absence and inability to defend the throne, COBRA has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of HAL'IGGE JOYROC, 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 ROCANIS seem to feel that they could fight better 
than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ROCANIS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  ROCANIS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is THEM, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels. 
If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of 
INCONSISTENT FURY last week.  Busy avoiding THEM?  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after IEZA 
VON DRAKA.  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  My sources at MIDDLE WAY 20 stable claim 
they've never seen the guild bitterer.  This as a result of the untimely demise of 
JEMILLA LOURDON.  Beware MAGE'S APPRENTICE!  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?  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
