                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in ZUKAL. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey everybody, 
watch out for MORAVIA MAUVE, who flew up 9 points in the rankings after mashing THE 
USEROUS MERCHANT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SAFFIRA lost to AMBITIOUS GUARD and drops 8 
points.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  
VENTRIIE did not fight this week so his title was forfeit.  In front of all the 
crowds, BLU JON took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  
4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that 
location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Proving again that ZUKAL is not 
rated G, VENOMOUS CONCUBINE of the ZUKAL slew the warrior BLEU BONET in a rather 
bloody bout.  Let's look for a bloodfeud.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ZUKAL have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Ventriie -- Fancy meeting you here. -- Bleu Bonet
P.S.  Surely you could teach me more than one skill?

Gangrel -- Bah. -- Blu Jon

Ambitious Guard?  Is ambition a Good Thing in guards?  Does it not tend to take their
minds (such as they might have) off their jobs? -- Moravia Mauve

It'd be more fun if the Fratsfa Slave were Fratsfan. -- Blhu Murther

Well, of COURSE I buried the Embezzling Scribe in the sand.  He was bleeding all over
the place and making a mess, and I remembered my uncle once telling me that he
sprinkled sand on a document to stop the ink from running, and it just seemed RIGHT.
-- Saffira

What!  Doctor Doom would LEAVE us?  How awful. -- Jorja and the Blue Moon crew

Our congratulations to Gangrel, dammit. -- Jorja et al

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
