                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DAL SHANG games.  Former top team TIL DEATH DO US PART 
was unseated this week as SAND DANCERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  STEELHORSE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested JOEVINA SARIL and was awarded 18 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, STEELHORSE put down 
JOEVINA SARIL, causing her to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has SIXKILLER in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DAL SHANG "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I 
have seen men cut down in their prime.  This week MIGHTY DUCKS must mourn the loss of 
15-8-0 FRIAR DUCK to POSSE.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable 
with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in DAL SHANG as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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
