                                      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 THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS guild has 
had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this 
kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, POCKET NEWS fought WALTER PIDGEON and gained 
10 points and contributed to THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' 4-1-0.  SIR SMASH has lost to 
GARRET, falling 7 points, while helping make LORDS INC. a 0-2-0 turn.  SIR BLUEBELL 
Bloodfeuded for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone MAN OR BEAST?'s 
warrior.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and BULL HALSEY 
remains ZUWAYZA's top warrior for another turn.  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.  THE MOTHERSHIP CC 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 THE MOTHERSHIP CC stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was MAN OR BEAST?.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' warrior POCKET NEWS.  More fighters challenged her than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     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.   
     I like this place, ZUWAYZA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZUWAYZA and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
