                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly VALAMANTIS games.  FERRIS HALE caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and was 
awarded 23 points in recognition.  Although CONVICTED ASSASSIN made a valiant effort, 
it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious CAPTAIN SCOURGE.  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     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!  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there 
is but one reward--death.  This past week ELEN GORVAN, at 8-10-0, departed VALAMANTIS 
forever.  Cruelly, SALTY DOG of DEATH MOB has slain the lesser ranked ELEN GORVAN.  
Word already flies around town that MIDDLE WAY 10 plans a bloodfeud!  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 VALAMANTIS as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Huh, five fights against standbys.  Can we avoid those guys?  They don't teach worth
beans, and we've got a low opinion of beans. -- the Middle Way

Double Huh!  Four-one against the standbys, and I had to LOSE to the Osksi Noble, a
double-dyed wuss.  This is not a good way to begin a new month. -- Hobban Jepp

Congratulations to Fyre Sword. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Evander Gill -- Then go ask the Grey Witch on the Isle!  Why should we give you
anything here?  What are you doing and planning to do to benefit Valamantis, that we
should make you gifts? -- Memsettis the Downtrodden

Fyre Sword -- Well, are YOU prepared to take what's offered in the way of excavation
rights?  (They tell me that sounds better than First-In Tomb-Robbing Rights.
Politically correct, or something.)  The chief excavators tell me there are some
likely possibilities out there. -- Memsettis the Downtrodden, Arena Manager
