                                      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.  ROXY MUSIC caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested OLTIMAL THE LAME and was awarded 
21 points in recognition.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All 
hail LINDIS TYL SARRO, Duelmaster of DAL SHANG!  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!   
     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!   
     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

We're sorry to see Dilbert go.  He added something, don't ask us what, to the arena
by his presence.  But... life can be short for a gladiator. -- the Sand Dancers

Ironic Twist -- Ah... I'm not getting the irony here?  But at least I'm alive to be
puzzled, that helps. -- Lorand ten Sorn

And four wins over standbys.  Another thrilling day at the office, squashing delivery
boys, janitors, and door-to-door salesmen. -- the rest of the Sand Dancers
