                                      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.  Later days, SERPENTS HOLD 3, since 
QUEEN took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see BICYCLE RACE win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, BICYCLE RACE beat TERM and TERM lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Looks like ZUKAL has some guts at least, SCALES the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  And if variety is the spice of life, ZUKAL may be getting 
bland, as SCALES stays top dog in the city.  The Blue Boar Inn, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ZUKAL's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  SERPENTS HOLD 3 was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led 
the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
PAPERBOYS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZUKAL's 
morgue.  More variety.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  RIGEL STONE, a glorious 2-15-2 
fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad BLUE MOON.  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?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice!  So 
nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this 
winter-- Snide Clemens

Serpant's Hold -- Not that I really want to fight anyone with a winning record but
fighting you seems just too much. -- Window

Seven active teams!  This is amazing, even if some of 'em don't run all five.  We
like it.  Twelve fights, which isn't so many, but except for the two DA fights, no
standbys!  Which means twenty serious gladiators gladiating seriously.  Well, fifteen
and us.  We, of COURSE, went oh-fer. -- Blue Moon
