                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ZUKAL!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, KING RAT fought VETERAN MERCENARY and gained 7 points and 
contributed to QUEEN's 4-0-0.  WILKERSON has lost to EXPENDABLE YOUTH, falling 3 
points, while helping make BLUE MOON a 1-4-0 turn.  We should ask MERCURY about the 
thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the 
one to ask.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under 
the table at The Blue Boar Inn?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  BLUE MOON has cause to stand tall, 
as they were ZUKAL's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided BLUE MOON stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
KARNHORN KARNAGE.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ZUKAL has more dishwashers per capita that fighters? 
Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ZUKAL, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZUKAL and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ZUKAL again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Oh, no!  Six dead in duels in the city this time!  We may perish utterly!

Our congratulations to King Rat. -- Jorja and the Blue Moons

Three-two, okay.  Two wins over standbys and one for the Rat.  Thank you, Rat, that
win, my fourteenth, seems to have been the critical issue.  Well, and possibly the
political points.  Still, for a Rat, you aren't a bad guy. -- Chantal

Geroge Zoar, Free Orc -- Thank you for the win.  You fought well, surrendered with
grace, and were generous with the skills.  I appreciate it. -- Waterlily Girl, who
can take a hint when it hits her in the face
