                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ZUWAYZA a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  The FROM THE SHADOW guild has had 
a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this 
kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, FREE PARKING fought DESERT PLANTS and gained 
23 points and contributed to MONOPOLY's 2-1-0.  DESERT PLANTS has lost to FREE 
PARKING, falling 23 points, while helping make THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS a 1-4-0 turn.  
This week's Duelmaster bout was between THE ENQUIRER and our Duelmaster MALKAI, 
making a challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and MALKAI 
remains ZUWAYZA's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Drunken Ox uses trolls in their stew.  Talk 
about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  JANUARY has cause to stand tall, 
as they were ZUWAYZA's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding JANUARY more than any other team we find MAN OR BEAST?.  ZUWAYZA, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take 
notice that MISSOURI WILDLIFE from THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS was ZUWAYZA's most challenged 
warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, BEAR GRYLLS from MAN OR BEAST? challenged up 
20 points to fight MAGIC TODAY from the THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS stable.  BEAR GRYLLS 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he defeated MAGIC TODAY and ended up with 66 
recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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

Bear Grylls -- Ah, I have you nicely balanced now.  One moment a man, the next a
beast, though I will admit that for a bear, you are on the small side.  No matter,
though, small bears are all the rage.  Ladies take them to parties on silken leashes.
-- Magic Today, well satisfied with himself

Power of the Press!  Hemlock Unlocked!  Read all about it, inside story on page nine!

Free Parking -- I call it... the Junk Yard.  Plan to stay a while. -- Desert Plants

Wolf Blitzer -- Couldn't you blitz the deer instead?  They're getting out of hand
again.  Next thing you know, we'll have hordes of deer advancing on St Louis, eating
everything in their path, landscaping, parks, gardens, farmlands... everything! --
