                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUKAL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see DALTON win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Due to absence, and 
inability to defend the throne, DJESEE has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start 
setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as TRUE BLUE 
takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not 
in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's 
new, don't you, ZUKAL?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  BLUE MOON was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... 
mumble... curse...  And it looks like ZOO-GHIO avoided them the most this turn.  What 
a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, 
ZULOR was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And now a passing thought on a warrior dying young 
(SHAMAHAMADI of PHILANTHROPISTS II):  You had your chance and now you're dead.  Oh 
well...  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing 
these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ZUKAL to get a drink than The Blue Boar Inn! 
Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  
Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens
