                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUKAL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, DARK WARDS, since CRIMSON 
DEATH took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now let's all watch 
CRIMSON DEATH's heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, 
big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see GLINDORA win a 
fight and gain 25 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, LUCIFER beat ATHOS and ATHOS lost 22 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster BLUE 
STREAK challenged this turn.  And if variety is the spice of life, ZUKAL may be 
getting bland, as VENTRIIE stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  CRIMSON 
DEATH, 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 DARK WARDS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Now 
here's guts and stupidity all rolled into one, THROUGH THE WINDOW challenged up 28 to 
take on DEBARROWS of CRIMSON DEATH.  But here's a pretty tale--THROUGH THE WINDOW did 
lose the fight, but gained 1 worth of recognition.  Some long shots can pay off, I 
guess.   
     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?  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

Our congratulations to Katana. -- Jorja and the Blue Moon

Ventriie -- I'll crack your tortoise shell yet, you couch potato! -- Blammo
P.S.  Maybe I'll ask Assur for advice....

Bicycle Race -- Wow, you were riding circles around me!  I'm faster, of course, but I
don't have your turning radius. -- Blue Streak

Midnight -- Dark and beautiful, and so generous!  Whatever it was you gave me... in
the arena has precipitated my graduation.  As usual, Jorja will print my inner
details if someone is curious enough to ask. -- Jed Tarran Dapp

Trake Darrows -- Damn.  The steward didn't have to say that was ONE-SIDED. -- Blue
Funk

Porthos -- I'd've been fine if you hadn't brought D'Artagnan along to help. --
Clarissa Teal
