                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ZUKAL 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, BLUE RUIN fought 
ROVING DEMON and gained 16 points and contributed to BLUE MOON's 3-2-0.  D. BASER has 
lost to MALACHITE, falling 14 points, while helping make LETTER BOMBS a 1-1-0 turn.  
Due to hers absence and inability to defend the throne, T. ZER has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, BLUE RUIN now claims the title and throne of 
Duelmaster of ZUKAL.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Blue Boar Inn 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.  I also notice that the BLUE MOON stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZUKAL, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding BLUE MOON more than any other team we find LETTER BOMBS.  ZUKAL, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ZUKAL has more dishwashers per capita that fighters? 
Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

It says here that the Fratsfa Slave is a Karnhorn.  Does that mean that he's a
Karnhorn enslaved by the Fratsfans (I wouldn't put it past them!) and sent here to
fight?  Ah, no, here he is in the arena directory:  Taranj, servant to the Karnhorn
ambassador to Andoria, found consorting on terms of confidence (telling tales out of
school?) with the Fratsfans, and sent home in chains.  Later traded to Zukal for some
unspecified but valued prisoner.  Oooo-kay.  A consorter, is he?  Sounds bad. -- The

N. Tomber -- I will have none of it! -- Blue Ruin

Z. Bra -- And you fill it out very well, too. -- Blue Suede

There should be a batch of personals from LAST turn here, as well.  Sorry.  Some
confusion with Hal.  I believe he eats personals on a regular, and regularly
increasing, basis. -- Jorja, not one of Hal's fans

Cat Tastrophie -- I believe I need to bring a dog, a LARGE dog, into the arena to
meet you.  A WOLF.  Yes.  I think that is EXACTLY what you need to meet in battle. --
The Prussian
P.S.  Because you lack, well, everything.  Discipline.  The willingness to
subordinate yourself to the good of the whole, stuff like that.  You're too
individualistic.  To independent.  Too much a CAT.

D. Baser -- Not MY haven, you won't!  Mine has been n.hanced. -- Blue Haven

Standbys.  (sigh)  And he wouldn't drink with me.  Said it was folly to drink gin
before a fight.  And yet, who won, eh? -- Blue Ruin

This Cult Member's fairly pathetic. -- Malachite

Z. Bra -- How can I fight when you keep swinging that thing in front of me?  I keep
tripping over my tongue! -- Blue Suede

Why should the crowd jeer at me?  I was not trained for the arena, but I did the best
I could and am improving steadily.  Is it that they, d.based commons that they are,
cannot abide the sight of someone who is actually taking steps to improve himself?  A
bad thing, that.  I had a suspicion that the arena system would foster the
development of such a stratum of parasites.  We should sell them all into slavery in
the East. -- Del'Borasan, an Guard with Ambitions

You laugh!  You throw rotten vegetables at me!  But I will not be a lowly, despised
person for long!  The cult of the Door of Darkness shall rise high in this city, and
then NO ONE will dare to mock us! -- Tachs, charter member of the Cult of the Door of
