                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly VALAMANTIS games.  Did only my eyes note the 3-0-0 
record which CM - SCORPIO managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a 
record will draw challengers!  HUEY caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested LENDIS OHLM and was awarded 15 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HUEY put down LENDIS OHLM, 
causing him to lose 17 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling to wait upon 
the will of others, Duelmaster STRIKE 3 Dark Arena Challenged SHEWISH GIANT last week 
in a match to decide the fate of the throne.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as 
SHEWISH GIANT killed the Duelmaster, STRIKE 3, leaving STRIKER FORCE in mourning.  
With bloody hand XI AQUILAE has ascended to the throne of champions.  Is he that one 
which is spoken of in the ancient texts?  No confirmation, but my sources claim that 
the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?  
     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.  MIDDLE WAY 10 is feared.  This much I can say.  
If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of CM - 
SCORPIO last week.  Busy avoiding MIDDLE WAY 10?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  LOUIS OHIA take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in VALAMANTIS.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 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

Eight fights, two standbys, and neither of the standbys was OURS.  The universe hates
us, which is further proven by the fact that we pulled an oh-fer today.  TOTALLY
unfair.  The only consolation is that none of us DIED.  So far. -- Oder Quin the
