                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ZUKAL this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, SAFFIRA fought FRATSFA SLAVE and 
gained 9 points and contributed to BLUE MOON's 2-3-0.  MORAVIA MAUVE has lost to SEA 
LEGS, falling 4 points, while helping make BLUE MOON a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and HEMPEN JIG remains ZUKAL's top warrior for 
another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped 
under the table at The Blue Boar Inn?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in ZUKAL again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

no hands? -- Blhu Murther

Ambitious Guard?  Useless. -- Bombarzol

At least the Captured Orc taught me a skill.  Just one, though.  Stingy! -- Saffira
