                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZUKAL will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as SPROUT OF IT is pushed out of top team by QUEEN, who came from 2nd with a 3-2-0 
this turn.  And let's see, CAILLOU fought AMBITIOUS GUARD and gained 13 points and 
contributed to SPROUT OF IT's 2-1-0.  TWIG has lost to WUSTHOF, falling 7 points, 
while helping make SPROUT OF IT a 2-1-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was 
between BANDIT PRINCE and our Duelmaster NO TIME, making a Dark Arena Challenge.  The 
crowds were amazed this turn, as BANDIT PRINCE killed the Duelmaster, NO TIME, 
leaving QUEEN in mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might add, WUSTHOF 
from HELL'S KITCHEN to ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is 
not happy.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under 
the table at The Blue Boar Inn?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the ACME stable was the 
most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZUKAL, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided ACME stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was SPROUT OF IT.  Anyone 
surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZUKAL and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--
