                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZUWAYZA will ever be the same.  The TEAM CHAOS guild has had a 4-1-1 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, TIMES fought SOLSTICE and gained 20 points and contributed to 
THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' 3-2-0.  SOLSTICE has lost to TIMES, falling 15 points, while 
helping make TEAM CHAOS a 4-1-1 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the 
throne, GULF COAST D has lost the title of Duelmaster.  We should ask TIMES 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 Drunken Ox?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZUWAYZA, what are you afraid of? 
And avoiding THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS more than any other team we find IDES OF MARCH.  
ZUWAYZA, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  ANICETUS ENNIUS of 
TEAM CHAOS had better have a good reason for challenging down 8 points in a challenge 
which he killed.  I thought ANICETUS ENNIUS showed great skill and promise when he 
put to death MARCELLUS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  Is it really true that ZUWAYZA has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZUWAYZA and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ZUWAYZA again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe

Gulf Coast D -- That's insane!  Why would anyone want to go so fast on WATER?  "Water
skiing"--sport of madmen.  And Debby Tonte, I suppose, but she's a madwoman.  To be
pulled through the water at high speed on my face, not my idea of fun.  Remind me to
drag you behind my chariot one of these days by way of compensation. -- Hot Rod

That M. Chardinee!  Always trying to get something for nothing.  Not even advertising
is free, you know. -- Nifty Nickel, who has to pay for paper and printers and
distribution before he can even think of making a profit, which IS what it's all
about

Really, the Convicted Assassin has missed his calling.  Instead of going into
gladiation to pay his fines, he should have become a politician.  He's a natural. --
Times

The Ambitious Guard has a lot of work ahead if he wants to learn MY skills.  He'd do
better to study embroidery. -- Black Belt

Gamma -- I gave the matter careful thought, taking into account that you're male and
have to conform to the masculine standards of adornment.  And when you were dangerous
stunned, before the Arenamaster stepped in, I applied a small tattoo on your ribs,
that being where I was at the time.  Tattoos are always manly, because getting them
hurts, right?  Tell me what you think of the design I chose for you. -- Ornament
