                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUKAL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see BLEU BONET win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
BLUETTE beat DENTINE and DENTINE lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ZUKAL may be getting bland, as INCISOR stays top dog in 
the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of 
these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ZUKAL to get a drink than The Blue Boar Inn! 
Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of ZUKAL. 
I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling 
come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Blue Jon -- Hanky?!  You are so cruel that you should be a dentist. -- Nosferatu

Bluette -- It was my pleasure to tussle and to come out on top. -- Gangrel

Ultorino, The Cadly Twit -- I shall not waste my time biting a lunk.  Go bite
yourself. -- Nosferatu

Gangrel -- What a selfish clot you are!  I always knew you were stingy. -- Bluette

Incisor -- Take the title.  See if I care! -- Ultorino, that's Lord Protector to you

Kung-Fu may have its uses, but they don't seem that great in an arena at this level
of competition. -- Blu Jon

Glindora -- It's because you're too tall.  The crowds find you intimidating and don't
consider you suitable for a "favorite," and it annoys me so I hit you harder.  Go on
a diet and reduce your height. -- Bleu Bonet

Obviously, this Convicted Thief is blackmailing the arenamaster, else he would not
have been credited with that win!  It was very wrong. -- Moravia Mauve

FIST?  Low/low?  I don't BELIEVE this! -- Ultorino

Lord Protector Ultorino -- Off to the Isle with you!  Take this genuine brass ring
with colored stone as a departing gift and never darken our portals again. --
