                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUWAYZA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS, 
since CUNNING RUNTS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  CUNNING 
RUNTS turned their 5-0-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any 
better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-1 is nice, 
but don't get cocky, IDES OF MARCH, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Tsk, tsk, PUBLIUS beat BLACK BELT and BLACK BELT lost 9 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as GIMME SOME SUGAR 
takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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, ZUWAYZA?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like IDES OF MARCH avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, ORNAMENT was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to PETE MOSS of 
FUNKY FOLK for challenging up by 20 to NIFTY NICKEL.  PETE MOSS won to get 86 points 
of recognition.  And we have ANTONIUS in a challenge, going down 12 points for the 
fight.  Guess what?  I thought ANTONIUS showed great skill and promise when he beat 
ORNAMENT.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the ZUWAYZA arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide

Solstice -- I was going to make some erudite and amusing observation anent our fight,
and suddenly my mind is blank.  Probably because you hit me on the head?  Whatever.
-- Nifty Nickel

Amatus Justas -- Eh?  What's that got to do with a sword in the right place? -- Black
Belt
P.S.  Or a kick, for that matter.

Antonius -- Ah.  I see that it is true, what I've been told about the barbaric,
unartistic nature of the average Rirorni warrior.  Unfortunate. -- Ornament

Dan Steppe -- THAT was your famous step?  Kick my feet out from under me and jump on
me?  I don't think it'll catch on in the ballrooms. -- Times

The Khalhums Dwarf has no pizzaz. -- Hot Rod

Our congratulations to Gimme Some Sugar.  Watch out for the dentists on the Isle. --
