                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ZUKAL!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  The QUEEN guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the 
future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, BO RHAP 
fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 15 points and contributed to QUEEN's 3-0-0.  IAN 
MOORE has lost to OGRE BATTLE, falling 6 points, while helping make ASSASSINS GUILD a 
0-3-0 turn.  And not without some honor, TIGHT BLOUSE now claims the title and throne 
of Duelmaster of ZUKAL.  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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
BLAMMO from BLUE MOON was ZUKAL's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave 
attempt, LEVIATHAN from ASSASSINS GUILD challenged up 22 points to fight BLAMMO from 
the BLUE MOON stable.  LEVIATHAN perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was 
bested by BLAMMO and ended up with 26 recognition points.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Had I not seen it, it would be hard 
to believe.  TIGHT BLOUSE was sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  
Makes you think, no?  HOT STUFF has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did you kill 
your fighter, 6' SPIKES, who had a record of 4-1-1?' A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  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

Crane Knight -- No, you will see how we do FTF. -- mgr Assassins Guild Invictus

Jed Tarran Dapp -- I'm glad you have great understanding.  I love competition,
however, I'm all about the Sparklers, baby.  You know an Elf has to eat. -- Bradly
Gore

     You eat sparklers?  That's... unusual.

Blue Funk -- I shall take your wisdom and run with it.  Thank you kindly. -- Bradly
Gore

Jed Tarran Dapp -- I figure you would feel that I am ugly for anyone shorter than me
gives me the willies. -- Leviathan

Eagle Knight -- Okay.  I'm here whenever you want. -- Jed Tarran Dapp
P.S.  Our general policy is, "No challenges, no avoids."

Our congratulations to Short Skirt. -- Jorja and the Blue Moon

Short Skirt -- Wow!  That skirt is cut clear up to, um, to THERE.  That's quite a
secret weapon you were wearing.  I was so fixated on, you know, THERE that I didn't
even SEE your sword. -- Bitterman

A Fratsfa Slave?  I'm insulted. -- Blue Funk
P.S.  But I don't mind the win.  Always a good thing, wins.

Damn.  Those Dangerous Criminals are a true menace. -- Blue Streak

Crane Knight -- It looks to me like the handicapper, who sets up the random matches,
has it in for you.  Is it a grudge, or do you suppose he bet against you? -- Blammo
P.S.  You might want to consider dropping your off-hand weapon.  Don't know if it'd
help, but it isn't like you were USING it.

Huh, Funky was insulted?  Not so insulted as *I* am at being matched with a Convicted
Thief. -- Jed Tarran Dapp
