                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ZUWAYZA!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as CUNNING RUNTS is pushed out 
of top team by MONOPOLY, who came from 3rd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, 
DID NOT FLUSH fought THE ENQUIRER and gained 18 points and contributed to BASH BRO 
HOUSEMATE's 3-0-0.  THE ENQUIRER has lost to DID NOT FLUSH, falling 15 points, while 
helping make THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS a 0-5-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, THE GREAT GAZOO has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And all eyes 
were on MILK IS OUT this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ZUWAYZA 
has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Drunken Ox uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the CUNNING RUNTS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZUWAYZA, what are you afraid of? 
And guess who avoided CUNNING RUNTS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was BASH 
BRO HOUSEMATE.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that THE ENQUIRER 
from THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS was ZUWAYZA's most challenged warrior this turn.  Building 
dreams on hope, MILK IS OUT challenged up 26 points this turn to take on COOKING LITE 
from THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS stable.  And whaddya know, MILK IS OUT beat COOKING LITE, 
and the fighters of BASH BRO HOUSEMATE were last seen lifting frothy pints of ale in 
honor of MILK IS OUT's 25 point gain.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  I guess it was coming sooner or later, THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS has lost 
ART OF THE WORLD, and ZUWAYZA is bound to miss her.  For a little while, at least.  
Is it really true that ZUWAYZA has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just 
thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in ZUWAYZA, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

to it. -- the rest of the Magnificent Mags

But I do them better! -- the Enquirer

Investigation continues, more next week! -- The Enquirer

The Enquirer -- I need a replacement issue.  I dropped that last issue in the sink
