                                      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 CHANTAL win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, STING 
beat MERCURY and MERCURY lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, ZUKAL may be getting bland, as BARELY LEGAL stays top dog in 
the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You 
want to know what's new, don't you, ZUKAL?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  SERPENTS HOLD 3 was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling 
come this winter-- Snide Clemens
