                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ROCANIS games.  NAKOR caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ELISE GOUDGE and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, NAKOR put down ELISE 
GOUDGE, causing her to lose 17 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling to 
wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster ERIK Dark Arena Challenged JO-KOBA HARRO 
last week in a match to decide the fate of the throne.  The crowds were amazed this 
turn, as JO-KOBA HARRO killed the Duelmaster, ERIK, leaving MEN OF STEEL in mourning. 
With bloody hand CALIS has ascended to the throne of champions.  Is he that one which 
is spoken of in the ancient texts?  Would you believe that over half of the old women 
in ROCANIS 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.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  INCONSISTENT FURY is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of CHOIR OF ANGELS 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.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ROCANIS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Our congratulations to Erik. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Again, we salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Erik -- Hmm, typical style match.  The Commission is biased against my kind, but we
have our place in the eventual defense of the Gates. -- Forlis Hooler

Rathnok Mulroot -- Did you realize that your mul-roots are showing?  Do you want to
be exposed to public gaze as a probable muller? -- Dobie Frome
P.S.  Although the color would look good on you, I suspect.

Triumphant -- Ah, the power of a name.  Bummer. -- Chebob Erle

I would, of course, have been glad to see more of my teammates winning.  But if we
could only have one today, I'm glad it's me! -- Elise Goudge

Bang! -- I noticed. -- Leelayla Norin

Ugh! -- You're one wild crazy Shagornan, blaze them fast eh? -- Tam Tam Ka'Blam

Dobie Frome -- Yikes, you're most dangerous, glad I switched equipment, that and some
luck and a steak ends. -- Rathnok Mulroot

Calis -- I'm surprized you haven't graduated yet.  Soon I'm sure. -- Manza Wiggles

Rirorni Spy -- When what how?  Nutz. -- Ieza von'Uraka
