                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly COLLUSION COVE games.  Former top team DEATH STUDS XII 
was unseated this week as RED DOG GANG moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 1-4-0 record for the round.  ATALAN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested LASSIE and was awarded 24 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, DRAVENDER put down BB BULLY BOY, causing him 
to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of 
BLACK WIDOW XLIII, for with its arena victory it may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city COLLUSION COVE.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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

Death Stud -- Congratulations on beating M. Chardinee for the title!  What a great
arena!  What great managerial skills!  What prowess!  I applaud you!!! -- Scorpion

Manager (tW) -- Well, gee.  It isn't every human that I have trouble keeping up with.
I dunno if this is good, that I couldn't keep up with you.  I mean, sure, getting
tired is good, then I can flop down and take a nap.  But it wasn't FUN.  Fun is
important. -- Flummax

The Happy Peasant tried to take my BONE away, so OF COURSE I bit him.  What did
anyone expect? -- Lassie

This Fratsfan Noble guy is some kind of idiot.  He wears PERFUME.  That really hurts
my nose, and if he had a real nose himself, which he doesn't, just a pathetic little
dab, it would hurt HIS, too. -- Little Big Dog

That is not an Honest Merchant, and it's no good pretending it is.  I'm not blind or
a fool, you know.  He came up on our porch--without an invitation, mind you--and
banged on the door but wasn't allowed in, and then he LEFT A BOX on the porch.
Probably something Bad.  He just ASKS to be bitten. -- BB Bully Boy

Listen, this Trustworthy Scribe dude came at me with a rolled up paper.  I know what
that means!  So of course I did my best to rip his throat out. -- Ogier the Dane

Well, we're up to ten fights, but with four standbys, one kill, and two of them being
Dark Arena matches, this still doesn't look good.  I think we should extinctify the
scrod before it extinctifies this whole arena. -- Arenamaster Harkon

29 April 09
Greetings All -- This is Vincent Michaels, "the Rake", mgr. of the Stormbringers out
of DM 33 Niatoli Island, back after a relatively long layoff.  I come back to my
arena to find only two other teams there.  Terrible!  I'm calling on all you managers
out there who have inactive teams in Niatoli to put them back in the game.  Also,
anyone else who wants to come check out our little island are welcome.  Good food and
a lot of good gambling, and you will have a chance to smack around Gen. GirlPants and
his band of Ravaged Queens.  Great fun.  Come one, come all!
