                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ZUKAL this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  BATTLE CRIES stable has parlayed this turn's 1-0-0 
into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 5th place.  Good work, 
guys!  And let's see, RECOIL fought THROUGH THE WINDOW and gained 16 points and 
contributed to SERPENTS HOLD 3's 3-1-0.  ARDSHEAL has lost to BARELY LEGAL, falling 
16 points, while helping make RED FURY a 1-4-0 turn.  Due to its absence and 
inability to defend the throne, FANG has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And not 
without some honor, BARELY LEGAL now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of 
ZUKAL.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The 
Blue Boar Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the CRIMSON DEATH stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on ZUKAL, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided CRIMSON DEATH stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY. 
Anyone surprised?   
     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.  This is not good to see.  Why pray 
tell has FAERIE KING been sent to the Dark Arena by QUEEN?  And why with a 7-1-1 
record??  A farewell moment, if you please, BODY LANGUAGE of QUEEN has been sent to 
the Dark Arena, and was carried out on his shield.  QUEEN has some questions to 
answer.  Like 'why did you kill your fighter, HANGMAN, who had a record of 4-1-0?' 
The Blue Boar Inn declares a free round for STING and all of RED FURY, for having 
revenged BLUE MOON's RIGEL STONE for killing one of their comrades.  We'd like to 
remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; 
and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, ZUKAL, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  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
