                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ZUKAL!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Cut this out and put it in your 
scrapbooks, CRIMSON DEATH!  'Cause they got 3-1-0 and moved up to 3rd!  MVP award for 
ATHOS?  CRIMSON DEATH's proud of him after beating BLHU MURTHER and getting 14 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  BLHU MURTHER got smashed by ATHOS, and lost 
11 points!  Like BLUE MOON's BLUETTE is sweating since she got challenged by 
Duelmaster VENTRIIE!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think 
VENTRIIE should let BLUETTE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is 
the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  CRIMSON DEATH was ZUKAL's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are DARK 
WARDS?  CRIMSON DEATH, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to 
accept an invitation!  Like, is BLU JON popular, or what?  He was challenged the most 
in all of ZUKAL!  He's got a 18-26-1, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ZUKAL is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

I am Duelmaster.  I wrote a column last time.  That is enough. -- King Ventriie

Bleu Bonet -- That was sort of a good try on your part.  Maybe in another eon? --
Ventriie

Bluette -- You shame me.  Or do I myself? -- Gangrel

Blhu Murther -- Where'd you get that weird-xxxed name, and quit picking on me! --
Hodur

Mordant Deserted -- That was no contest. -- Snape

Gangrel -- If I were the Infirmarian, I wouldn't let you in the hospital.  You might
be contagious. -- Bluette

Ventriie -- I didn't need this. -- Bleu Bonet

Ah, the Veteran Mercenary, also known as the Veteran Loser. -- Blu Jon

One must puzzle over the motives of the Ambitious Guard in continuing to enter the
arena.  Surely by now he has noticed how often he loses, learning nothing? -- Moravia
Mauve

Hodur -- I had the advantage when I stepped out, and you'd better BELIEVE I wasn't
going to let it get away from me. -- Blhu Murther

Gangrel -- You win some, then you lose some, eh? -- Blu Jon
