                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TARRGIR games.  Fortune did not smile upon A-AF-SHNAPP 
ATTACK this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 14th position in the wake of 
a 0-1-0 round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week D-OUT-ANDORIA went 3-0-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  Did 
only my eyes note the 3-1-0 record which D-LID-LBA LEGENDS managed to post this 
round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  AB-NORMAL HAMMER 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested AB 
PERNICIOUS and was awarded 17 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, AB-NORMAL HAMMER put down AB PERNICIOUS, causing it to lose 16 points 
of recognition in the process.  Although ST-GAZREK made a valiant effort, it did not 
suffice to topple the reign of victorious ST-TOURNEY FLUFF.  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TARRGIR "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in TARRGIR these days is A-GQ-ANDORIAN POWER.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding A-GQ-ANDORIAN POWER.  Indeed it was 
F-FZ-IZZLE.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  TP 
SCARY SHNAPP take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in TARRGIR.  AB-ADIE 
must really be harboring a grudge against the A-AF-SHNAPP ATTACK guild!  Merciless, 
20 challenged down TP SCARY SHNAPP points this week to duel with he.  Few would not 
have guessed the outcome of the bout as TP SCARY SHNAPP was overcame by AB-ADIE.  Is 
this what passes for courage in TARRGIR?  I can not but mention with disdain the name 
of ST-IZZLE who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 12 points below in 
the rankings.  I thought ST-IZZLE showed great skill and promise when he defeated 
SL-INFERNAL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  I must report the passing of AB-BUSTER, veteran of many duels.  
5-7-0 final record Its was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--
