                                      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.  Former top team WAYFARERS was 
unseated this week as TOO OLD moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
2-1-0 record for the round.  A new guild, B.B. DRAG QUEENS, entered AMEN-TEI with a 
clash this turn, showing off a 2-1-0 record.  Indeed, a worthy addition to the city 
guilds.  SEVERIN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested KORARIO and was awarded 23 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, SEVERIN put down KORARIO, causing him to lose 18 points of 
recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of MALICHAI, 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 AMEN-TEI seem to feel that they could 
fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In AMEN-TEI "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in AMEN-TEI these days is WAYFARERS.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of TOO OLD are catching the bulk of jests down 
at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  KORARIO take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in AMEN-TEI.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in AMEN-TEI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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
