                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ROCANIS games.  BACKLASH caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested JIM DASHER and was awarded 32 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SERGEANT 1 put down DENNA 
FEYL, causing her to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory 
fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail MEECHAM, Duelmaster of ROCANIS!  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.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in ROCANIS these days is MEN OF STEEL.  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 MEN OF STEEL.  Indeed it was 
TREXTRAS.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For 
mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week JIM DASHER, at 8-6-0, 
departed ROCANIS forever.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the 
arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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

Wow, an actual challenge!  Ferria's not thrilled, of course, losing to a dwarf.
Elves care about things like that.  The rest of the team didn't do so hot, either,
except for me.  I had the cunning and luck to draw a standby and trash him.  Ha! --
