                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ZUWAYZA a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS is pushed out of top team by JOURNEY, who came 
from 5th with a 3-0-0 this turn.  JOURNEY stable has parlayed this turn's 3-0-0 into 
a 4 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  
And let's see, FLAMBERGE fought LONELY HEARTS and gained 23 points and contributed to 
BATTLEAXE STAMPEDE's 2-0-0.  LONELY HEARTS has lost to FLAMBERGE, falling 17 points, 
while helping make THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS a 1-4-0 turn.  Due to hers absence and 
inability to defend the throne, CANARY has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And all 
eyes were on TRAVEL WEEKLY this turn as she ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
ZUWAYZA has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Drunken Ox uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that ZUWAYZA has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ZUWAYZA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in ZUWAYZA again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Two-three, with two standbys.  I'm ashamed to admit that I lost to my standby.  In my
defense, I can only say that I was fully prepared to hammer his rivets out, but he
didn't HAVE any rivets.  One of those "look, ma, no iron" types.  Bah. -- Hammer
