                                      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 THAT SMELL was 
unseated this week as SAND DANCERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week THE MOTHERSHIP CE went 0-0-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which SAND DANCERS managed to post 
this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  HURL LI caught 
the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MALDI 
STONEBREAKER and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, KURR LI put down CITRUS, causing him to lose 5 points of recognition 
in the process.  Although MOFFIT made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple 
the reign of victorious RESIN.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
DAL SHANG seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     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.  THAT SMELL is feared.  This much I can say.  If you didn't 
look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of BUMPER WISDOM last 
week.  Busy avoiding THAT SMELL?  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it 
but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after ROT.  Watch your back!   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in DAL SHANG as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
