                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ZUKAL a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, SERPENT 2 fought 
BLUESTOCKING and gained 23 points and contributed to SERPENTS HOLD 2's 2-0-0.  DRAKE 
has lost to FREE WHEEL, falling 10 points, while helping make SPACEMARINES a 0-4-0 
turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, STRONG BAD has lost the 
title of Duelmaster.  We should ask BISBEE BLUE about the thrill of victory, and what 
being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  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.   
     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.  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
