                                      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.  DILBERT caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LORAND TEN SORN and was awarded 
24 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DILBERT put down 
LORAND TEN SORN, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  This 
time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail LINDIS TYL SARRO, Duelmaster 
of DAL SHANG!  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 DAL SHANG.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  THE INQUISITION is feared.  This much I can say.  
Apparently the stalwarts of BASH BROS EVANGELIST are catching the bulk of jests down 
at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 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
