     Assassins Guid is an international brotherhood of well-trained mercenaries,
assassins, criminals, etc. who have one and only one thing in common, that is to do
what many never will:  Kill.  Each Comrade is quarted by a blood bond initiated by a
sage.  Once the bonding process is complete, each Brother is indebted to his comrades
and will give his life to avenge their death.  After initiation, all comrades are
mentally and physically broken to insanity and death.  Once brought back using the
breath of life, they are then reformed.  They are trained in the art of death and
manipulation.  They fear nothing but failure.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ZUKAL.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  HOT STUFF?  Who?  BLUE 
MOON is the top team these days, buddies!  Practice pays for BITTERMAN, who pummelled 
KHALHUMS DWARF, to pocket 14 points.  BODY LANGUAGE certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to JED TARRAN DAPP and losing 8 points in the 
process!  A certain someone saw G-STRING at The Blue Boar Inn with the shakes, and 
now she fails to show up to defend hers throne.  What a pathetic slob!  Now I can't 
insult BITTERMAN, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!! 
(Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in ZUKAL is taking speech 
lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are ZUKAL's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ZUKAL farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir
