                                      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 MEDAL OF HONOR Z2 
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.  DWARF FRICASSEE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested PERSISTANT BEGGAR and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER put 
down SERGEANT 2, causing him to lose 18 points of recognition in the process.  
Although THE MONGOOSE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign 
of victorious ROSS F. GRAY.  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 LIN TIRIAN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 LIN TIRIAN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Things have sure gotten quiet around here. -- One Armed Bandit, mgr of Shewish Buffet

     No lie!

Is it our imagination, or is this arena VERY SMALL, and the front-page honors all in
the hands of those soldier boys?  Not that we're blaming anybody except maybe those
who aren't fighting here.  Still, given the kind of winters we have here--are having
here RIGHT NOW--it's hard to blame 'em.  Well, people return in the spring?  We hope
so!  Only six fights today, one Sergeant sent to the Dark Arena and the rest between
us and the soldier boys.  In the non-DA fights, only one standby, what amazing
restraint!  We went two-three, defeating the standby (of course) and a Sergeant.
Okay.  We can live with that, if that is what we're offered.  Could be worse! -- the
Mongoose
