                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JURINE games.  Former top team AUTUMN SAGA was 
unseated this week as MIDDLE WAY 16 moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-3-1 record for the round.  FLAME SPIDER caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TAKOLE URM and was awarded 18 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, AMBITIOUS GUARD put down 
BONESNAP, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, DECAY has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
The city has turned out in honor of SAND MAGGOT, for with his arena victory he may 
now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe that over half 
of the old women in JURINE seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JURINE "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and 
it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after TAKOLE URM.  Watch your 
back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one 
reward--death.  This past week TAKOLE URM, at 13-16-0, departed JURINE forever.  Fate 
is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies 
against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in JURINE as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
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 Sharp Eyes
