                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SHADOWSPIRE games.  Fortune did not smile upon PRAY 
THE GODS this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 22nd position in the wake 
of a 1-1-0 round.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-1 record which CULT OF BACCHUS 
managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  
DRY MOUTH MAX caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested RUMMER and was awarded 25 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, DRY MOUTH MAX put down RUMMER, causing him to lose 19 points of 
recognition in the process.  This time out LISHCHKA made hers bid for the throne as 
she challenged ALLEZLES KEUS in an all out contest of skill for possession of the 
title!  The city has turned out in honor of LISHCHKA, for with hers arena victory she 
may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  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 SHADOWSPIRE "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided 
when this week's challenge seeking began.  BIG LAKE OUTCASTS is feared.  This much I 
can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of THE COMMODORES last week.  Busy avoiding BIG LAKE OUTCASTS?  Loose talk at the 
arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are 
after BYRUHO.  Watch your back!  At the gambling halls I have started to bet money on 
BABY CRAMBUS.  He has got the courage it takes.  Witness his challenge this turn 
against HAKUNA FRITTATA!  Do not the gods reward courage?  BABY CRAMBUS it was that 
claimed victory in the bout, while also rising 19 points in recognition.  A match 
that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that SAILOR JEFFRY posted 
a challenge against the more highly recognized CREDITS.  The results, you ask?  Well, 
the firebrand SAILOR JEFFRY defeated CREDITS.  Remember warriors, this is the 
discipline of steel.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of BEER GUT who 
this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 11 points below in the rankings.  I 
thought BEER GUT showed great skill and promise when it defeated BLOODY MARIA.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  BARATUS must hold silent, for this week he was 
humbled in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by PIXIE of MONSTER MANUAL.  Hail 
PIXIE for thy victory!  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 SHADOWSPIRE 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
