                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUKAL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see BITTERMAN win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
BARELY LEGAL beat BLAMMO and BLAMMO lost 5 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to 
absence, and inability to defend the throne, G-STRING has lost the Title of 
Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as BITTERMAN takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you 
think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
ZUKAL, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  SERPENTS HOLD 2 the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act 
of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY.  Ha ha ha 
ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, BLAMMO was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ZUKAL to get a drink than The Blue Boar Inn! 
Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  
Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

All -- We all have taken an oath the day we became gladiators.  It was also the day

position as stylemaster.  Let's not make that happen, okay? -- Blammo, trying sweet
reason when hard blows won't get the job done

Midnight -- I don't like being out that late. -- Jed Tarran Dapp

A Convicted Thief is nothing to me!  I spit on Convicted Thieves. -- Blue Funk
