                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZUKAL will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as SEA DOGS is pushed out of top team by BLUE MOON, who came from 2nd with a 4-1-0 
this turn.  And let's see, MORAVIA MAUVE fought SEA LEGS and gained 23 points and 
contributed to BLUE MOON's 4-1-0.  SEA LEGS has lost to MORAVIA MAUVE, falling 17 
points, while helping make SEA DOGS a 1-1-0 turn.  Defending his title for another 
turn, HEMPEN JIG kept BLUE MOON's warrior, BLHU MURTHER, from claiming the throne.  
Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters 
do dishes at The Blue Boar Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that ZUKAL has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ZUKAL, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in ZUKAL, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Hempen Jig -- Well, I suppose it is better for you to be stuck with the column than
me.  Even if you don't do it--I wouldn't do it, or personals either, if Jorja wasn't
always ready to bop me over the head for "neglecting my duties."  I hope you
appreciate your manager who only requires that you fight well. -- Blhu Murther
P.S.  Of course, if Jorja required me to fight well, there might be problems.  Unless
she was prepared to pay attention to my training.

Sea Legs -- You just like to show them off, don't you?  And in fishnet stockings,
which is Even Worse.  Fishnet stockings are Depraved. -- Moravia Mauve

Eely Joe -- I just can't stand eels and snake-like things, okay?  Snake-o-phobia is
NORMAL in humans.  I'm not.  Oh, well, in elves, too, probably even more! -- Bisbee
Blue

A truly pathetic Fratsfa Slave. -- Saffira

And an equally worthless Userous Merchant. -- Bombarzol
P.S.  Of course, that does give Saffy and me the only wins, so it isn't all THAT bad
to draw standbys.

Bomby -- Don't call me "Saffy" like I was BLONDE or something, you big idiot. --
Saffira
