                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ILLIS games.  BEACH BOB caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BUXTON and was awarded 23 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BEACH BOB put down BUXTON, 
causing him to lose 19 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell 
to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail STINGAREE, Duelmaster of ILLIS!  Would you 
believe that over half of the old women in ILLIS seem to feel that they could fight 
better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ILLIS "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from 
those below.  SYLVESTER take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in ILLIS.  A 
match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that BABY BLANKET 
posted a challenge against the more highly recognized SYLVESTER.  The results, you 
ask?  Well, the firebrand BABY BLANKET overcame SYLVESTER.  Remember warriors, this 
is the discipline of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
