     Wow, they told me the women who run the pink flower houses were tough, but I
didn't realize HOW tough.  Madame U-Tana is VERY tough.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DAYLA KIV games.  Former top team SAND DANCERS was 
unseated this week as CORPS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-0-0 record for the round.  WHIRLPOOL caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested SHAMELESS BEGGAR and was awarded 12 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, FASE put down DOLBY KLEE, 
causing him to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  Although PELIS THE OLD 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious LARIS TYL 
ZORA.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  CORPS is feared.  This much I can 
say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better 
part of last week avoiding CORPS.  Indeed it was ERRATA.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  VORGAN TEN TALH take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in DAYLA KIV.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games 
this week, it seems that MILKSHAKE posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized VORGAN TEN TALH.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand MILKSHAKE 
defeated VORGAN TEN TALH.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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 DAYLA KIV.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can 
I keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Um...would you believe I was utterly taken aback to be matched against Darsal the
False?  I just couldn't handle the IDEA of him, so of course I couldn't handle the
steel of him, either.  Bummer. -- Dolby Klee

No Dirty Ruffian is going to take ME down.  I was all SET to get him any way I could,
and he...he SURRENDERED!  Gods, what a wimp. -- Vorgan ten Talh

Milkshake -- Wow, a real warrior!  Cool.  I don't even mind losing. -- Kirssarina
P.S.  You and me are the only warriors in the whole arena who fought real opponents,
and even you barely made it.  I mean, it isn't you, but I only just qualify as
"managed."
