                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ZUWAYZA!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, HAMMER REVIEW fought CAPTURED ORC and gained 15 points and 
contributed to THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' 4-1-0.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, PUTRID DEFILER has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And all eyes 
were on JEWEL 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.  MAN OR BEAST? 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 MAN OR BEAST? more than any other team we find MAN OR BEAST?.  
ZUWAYZA, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     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

Putrid Defiler -- You deserve your name, but even now you may repent and go Green.
Remember, there is always that option. -- Mother Ghea News

Three-two-one, with the usual split:  wins over standbys, losses to managed
gladiators.  It gets old.  I get old.  I'm glad to be leaving. -- Mother Ghea News
