                                      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.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week NUTS! went 1-0-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  VANNA WAYFARER caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
she skillfully bested GANGLION and was awarded 12 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, KRYSOR put down FAMILY TAXI, causing her to lose 9 
points of recognition in the process.  Although MOSS AGATE made a valiant effort, it 
did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious PFC 2.  No confirmation, but my 
sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city AMEN-TEI.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  SUPERIOR FORCES is feared.  This much I can say.  
Apparently the stalwarts of NUTS! are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in AMEN-TEI as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

One standby for us, and strangely enough we went one-four, with that standby
providing the win.  Soldiers, brainy types, and bad girls for the rest of us.  And
almost everybody ELSE got standbys.  Is this fair?  We've been TRAINING those
standbys, and they turn a cold shoulder on us! -- Tomas Katt
