                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ZUWAYZA!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, DESERT PLANTS fought LUXURY TAX and gained 15 points and 
contributed to THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' 2-3-0.  MODEL RAILROADER has lost to VENOMOUS 
CONCUBINE, falling 19 points, while helping make THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS a 2-3-0 turn.  
Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, BUT FARM WEEKLY is still the 
Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Drunken Ox 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  Well, sports fans, take notice that THE 
ENQUIRER from THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS was ZUWAYZA's most challenged warrior this turn.  
Tsk, tsk, tsk.  DID NOT FLUSH, does your manager know you're challenging down 21 
points to fight THE BOOT from MONOPOLY?  It pains me to see warriors take advantage 
of the system like this.  DID NOT FLUSH defeated THE BOOT, as if it surprises anyone. 
MILK IS OUT of BASH BRO HOUSEMATE had better have a good reason for challenging down 
14 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought MILK IS OUT showed great skill and 
promise when he defeated THE ENQUIRER.  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.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Chance -- It isn't by chance that we intend to use the full 4 turns to avenge our
fallen comrade. -- Hair in Sink

The Enquirer -- Wow, this could become addicting, fast.  Is there a discount for full
subscriptions? -- Milk is Out

Farm Weekly -- You'd better get your invite soon or the dumb farmer jokes might have
to make an appearance to the Zuwayza ads...  Or maybe I'll offer them up for
publication in the Enquirer! -- Assur

     Sounds like a plan.

Truly now, what kind of idiot would want to play as an old shoe? -- Assur (one of
those idiots who always chose to play as the boot first)

Due to circumstances beyond my control, my teams will not be able to write personals
