                                      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 SAND DANCERS was 
unseated this week as SERPENTS HOLD moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-1-0 record for the round.  KORDAL T'ROHN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TOES and was awarded 15 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KORDAL T'ROHN put down TOES, 
causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Although LOEKER SMITH 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious ICECLAW.  
Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without 
pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DAL SHANG "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
