                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ZENSU a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, IGOR fought EMPTY 
BLOOD and gained 15 points and contributed to 4-LETTER ASSISTANTS' 1-0-1.  CRUSHING 
AXE has lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, falling 7 points, while helping make XCOM ALPHA a 
1-4-0 turn.  We should ask AHUA KIN about the thrill of victory, and what being the 
new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The 
Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     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 XCOM ALPHA stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZENSU, what are you afraid of?  And guess 
who avoided XCOM ALPHA stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was BLOOD & IRON.  
Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  The manager of XCOM ALPHA will not be pleased to learn that EMPTY BLOOD, a 
5-2-0 fighter, has been killed at the hands of 4-LETTER ASSISTANTS' IGOR.  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 ZENSU and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--
