                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JURINE games.  VINDA YARRO caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested BOOTSY COLLINS and was awarded 
20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DANGEROUS 
CRIMINAL put down ARKAN BARNES, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the 
process.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to M. CHARDINEE, and 
BARTON DAWES has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With BARTON DAWES clearing the 
throne, MIDDLE WAY 16 of DEEMER EPPT takes a proud seat as JURINE's new Duelmaster, 
by virtue of recognition points.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told 
me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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?  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 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

I could do a duelmaster's column, Arkan having flubbed it and the title falling to
me, but I'm told that personals are more important.  Since no one's talking or even
FIGHTING other than us, I don't count the standbys, that seems questionable.  *I*
would say that FIGHTS are more important, but what do I know?  I'm just a gladiator.
As a team, we went two-three against the standbys.  Not good, but at least no one
died.  The Dangerous Criminal (surely there can't be more than one like that?) was
much in evidence, defeating two of my teammates before I put him back in his place.
