                                      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 SHEWISH BUFFET was 
unseated this week as MEDAL OF HONOR Z2 moved up from 4th ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-1 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always 
around the corner!  Witness how this week MEDAL OF HONOR Z2 went 4-1-1 to move up 3 
in the rankings.  URIK DARKHEART caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested MONSTER MASH and was awarded 9 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, URIK DARKHEART put down 
MONSTER MASH, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, MEZQUINO POLLO has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of URIK DARKHEART, for with his arena 
victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Informants "close" 
to the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath 
his armor.  Watch out!   
     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?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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

Green Giant was a jolly fellow: 9-8-21-15-7-9-15 PR.  He was our favorite teammate,
although it got a bit tiring when he had "Dinner" on the chore wheel.  Vegetables
again?  He will be missed, even if his meals won't be. -- Shewish Buffet

Mezquino Pollo -- Hot sauce, hot shot, same difference.  Tasty, but I can still
resent losing the title.  After all, if I took it on a loss, why can't I KEEP it on a
loss? -- Urik Darkheart

Rib Iaye -- Not good enough to beat me at my own game, boy. -- Silver Slim

Knuckle Sandwich -- Too much gristle for my taste. -- Vera Teague

And one-one against standbys.
