                                      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.  GORBAN TEN SKORA caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DENGAN THE TRADER and was 
awarded 12 points in recognition.  Not for nothing has IRONIC TWIST 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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city DAL SHANG.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Must the anguished spirit of DILBERT 
toss forever in the grave unrevenged?  Against the code, THE BLUE PILL has escaped 
his deed unpunished by CUBICLE CRUSADERS!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in DAL SHANG.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Our congratulations to Ironic Twist. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

A back-and-forth turn, lose, win, lose, win, lose.  Next time, we'll have to start
with the win, so we can get three of 'em.  Nothing here looks worth specific
comments, though, so:

To those we fought -- Good fight. -- We who fought you
