                                      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.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as VISIONS V2 is pushed out of top team by MAN OR BEAST?, who came from 
3rd with a 3-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, WALTER PIDGEON fought GARRET and gained 
19 points and contributed to MAN OR BEAST?'s 3-0-0.  GARRET has lost to WALTER 
PIDGEON, falling 14 points, while helping make VISIONS V2 a 3-2-2 turn.  This week's 
Duelmaster bout was between MISSOURI WILDLIFE and our Duelmaster DONKEY HOTAY, making 
a challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and DONKEY HOTAY 
remains ZUWAYZA's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Drunken Ox?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  JESSIE'S SPUDS 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 JESSIE'S SPUDS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was MAN OR BEAST?.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that MISSOURI 
WILDLIFE from THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS was ZUWAYZA's most challenged warrior this turn.  
In a brave attempt, PAXTON from VISIONS V2 challenged up 19 points to fight FLOOIE 
from the JESSIE'S SPUDS stable.  PAXTON perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he 
dispatched FLOOIE and ended up with 21 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZUWAYZA and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ZUWAYZA again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe
