                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUKAL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see HOMESTAR win a fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HOMESTAR beat 
BILBO BAGGINNI and BILBO BAGGINNI lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to 
absence, and inability to defend the throne, LIP GLOSS has lost the Title of 
Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as HOMESTAR takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster. 
Heh, heh.  The Blue Boar Inn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do 
they get this stuff?  From ZUKAL's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  SEA DOGS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were 
this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who 
led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
HOMESTAR & CO.  Ha ha ha ha!  I notice RAT CATCHER challenging down 22 points to 
fight BISBEE BLUE, SEA DOGS doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an insult to 
honor.  RAT CATCHER lost to BISBEE BLUE!  Ok, RAT CATCHER want to fight my 
grandmother next turn?  Huh?   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of ZUKAL.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Bisbee Blue -- Sorry about that, but every time I step into the arena with Lip Gloss,
I see my life flash before my eyes. -- Rat Catcher

     Sounds distracting. -- Zrof One-Eye

Rat Catcher -- If I was a rat, I'd have teeth to bite you with.  And I would use
them. -- Bisbee Blue

This Fratsfa Slave, clumsy oaf that he is, has damaged my stockings!  Naturally, I
responded by kicking him in the teeth. -- Bluestocking
P.S.  And elsewhere.

Rather boring cult it must be, that sends us these boring Cult Members. -- Fisher

These Convicted Thieves are ridiculous. -- Norther and Blue Devil
