                                      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 THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS is 
pushed out of top team by MAN OR BEAST?, who came from 2nd with a 2-3-0 this turn.  
And let's see, MOOSE JOHNSON fought WATER WORKS and gained 18 points and contributed 
to MAN OR BEAST?'s 2-3-0.  MISSOURI WILDLIFE has lost to DANGEROUS CRIMINAL, falling 
13 points, while helping make THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS a 2-3-0 turn.  And all eyes were 
on DESERT PLANTS this turn as she ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ZUWAYZA has 
a new victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped 
under the table at The Drunken Ox?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  SERPENTS HOLD II has cause to 
stand tall, as they were ZUWAYZA's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is 
a team to beat.  And guess who avoided SERPENTS HOLD II stable the most?  Believe it 
or not, it was MAN OR BEAST?.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that ZUWAYZA has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ZUWAYZA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  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

Bear Grylls -- If you persist in demolishing the biota, and a desert biota is very
fragile, you know, then you will soon have nothing to eat here.  This will force you
to move on.  Why not move on now and leave the biota healthy? -- Desert Plants

I find it incredible that the Veteran Mercenary is actually raising and releasing
MORE DEER.  Is the man insane? -- Missouri Wildlife

Free Parking -- Damn, that spell was SUPPOSED to turn you into an expired parking
meter.  Well, back to the drawing board. -- Magic Today

If the Userous Merchant ignores my warnings of earthquakes and hurricanes, and his
business suffers as a result, is this MY fault?  No. -- Farmers Almanac
