                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ILLIS games.  KONA QUAIL caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested M. CHARDINEE and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, I'M POWERLESS put 
down STINGAREE, causing him to lose 2 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has DERELICT in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that 
the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?  
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after ROSE 
SHELL.  Watch your back!  I can not but mention with disdain the name of I'M A BASHER 
who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 15 points below in the rankings. 
I thought I'M A BASHER showed great skill and promise when he beat ROSE SHELL.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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:  a fool flies into a 
rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani

Hey, I had to lose that one!  The Userous Merchant repossessed my sword, and the
Kung-Fu Master hasn't taught me how to fight without it. -- Stinagree

La Jolla -- Heck, you caught me!  I *was* laughing at you.  I know it was tasteless,
but hey, I'm a gladiator.  I don't do "tasteful." -- Kalaboosha

Only six fights?  That's pathetic. -- the Islanders
