                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZUKAL will ever be the same.  HOT STUFF stable has parlayed this turn's 1-0-0 
into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, 
guys!  And let's see, FISHER KING fought CULT MEMBER and gained 16 points and 
contributed to BLUE MOON's 4-1-0.  COAL BACKER has lost to HOMESTAR, falling 1 
points, while helping make SEA DOGS a 1-1-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was 
between BILBO BAGGINNI and our Duelmaster LIP GLOSS, making a challenge.  Defending 
hers title for another turn, LIP GLOSS kept MIDDLE ITALY's warrior, BILBO BAGGINNI, 
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.  I also notice that the HOT STUFF 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZUKAL, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided HOT STUFF stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was SEA DOGS. 
Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that BISBEE BLUE from BLUE MOON was 
ZUKAL's most challenged warrior this turn.  RAT CATCHER of SEA DOGS had better have a 
good reason for challenging down 12 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought 
RAT CATCHER showed great skill and promise when he defeated BISBEE BLUE.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that ZUKAL has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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
