     Kung-Fu, hmm?  Well, they do say that if you actually go to the Isle of the
Eye, it's handy.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly AMEN-TEI games.  REYNOLDS caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MARIA and was awarded 15 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ELEPHANT DUNG put down M.T. 
LANE, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory 
fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail NO WAY!, Duelmaster of AMEN-TEI!  Heed 
this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city 
shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in AMEN-TEI these days is SITTIN' ON ACES.  At least, most blades in 
town are looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild 
it was that spent the better part of last week avoiding SITTIN' ON ACES.  Indeed it 
was 1949 YANKEES.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in AMEN-TEI 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 - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Elephant Dung -- The name suits you. -- Hyram Carter

M. Chardinee.  Why am I not thrilled? -- Valnakaur

Quinze -- I'd think they would make an uncomfortable seat. -- M.T. Lane

The Cultist should stick to his cultic mysteries and leave gladiating to those who do
it full time. -- Carron Rhodes

We should get to write personals today!  We fielded a full team and then some, so why
can't we write personals? -- Haldor Ironfoot, Impolite Beggar

Lady Protector Lennalgire -- Surely an intelligent woman such as yourself has no
desire for the burden of administering such unpromising "lands" as we might be able
to provide?  There isn't a thing on the books right now except a rent-controlled
slum, anyway.  You wouldn't want that.  Come by my office and we can talk about some
other possibilities. -- Dame Mingia, Assistant to the High Thane
