                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly LIN TIRIAN games.  Former top team GIRLS X3 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.  TOVER DUCK caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CLYMENE and was awarded 14 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TOVER DUCK put down CLYMENE, 
causing her to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has 
MEDUSA in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven 
hers combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team 
has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city LIN TIRIAN.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in LIN TIRIAN.  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
