                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly VALAMANTIS games.  Fortune did not smile upon CM - 
SCORPIO this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 8th position in the wake of 
a 0-0-0 round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week GARBAGE PAIL KIDS went 1-0-0 to move up 5 in the rankings.  
DANG LEN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested KIM NEUW and was awarded 14 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, DANG LEN put down KIM NEUW, causing her to lose 11 points of 
recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of SUBWAY, 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 VALAMANTIS seem to feel that they could 
fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In VALAMANTIS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  DARKSIDEOFTVLAND 3 is feared.  This much I can 
say.  Apparently the stalwarts of PUBLIC TRANSIT are catching the bulk of jests down 
at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  
MARIAH has the town astir with the news of hers Dark Arena victory!  Dark alleys may 
hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel. 
Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in VALAMANTIS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Well, it looks like zombies walking up and down the track messed up the new subway
line.  Too bad.  We were hoping for a route out to Old Valamantis, but, of course,
there are a LOT of zombies out there.

A-1 -- Maybe not quite yet, eh? -- Kim Neuw

Lucky -- Purest luck. -- Long Olbert

And for the rest, three wins over standbys.  A good day's work here. -- the rest of
