                                      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 MIDDLE WAY 20 was 
unseated this week as INCONSISTENT FURY moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  GERHART ERVIN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KASPAR and was awarded 15 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GERHART ERVIN put down KASPAR, 
causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out 
in honor of LINKIN LOGGER, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the 
highest position in the city!  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!   
     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.  TREXTRAS is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding TREXTRAS.  Indeed it was THEM.   
     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!  
     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 - the pen 
is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
