                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JURINE games.  ERON caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CONVICTED THIEF and was awarded 14 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ASHA put down DARTH 
VADAR, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, REWARD has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
The city has turned out in honor of VINDA YARRO, for with hers arena victory she 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?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city JURINE.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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
