                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZENSU brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for WAR-C-KERS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped 
them by 4 into 9th.  Ha!  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see JENIPHER win 
a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLOOD BATH beat CRIMSON FEAST and 
CRIMSON FEAST lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and 
inability to defend the throne, TRIANGLE MAN has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start 
setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as CASSIUS 
takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZENSU's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ZENSU arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of ZENSU.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back 
of this place-- Snide Clemens

So!  I did wonder, and you can see the truth right HERE.  The Fratsfa Slave is
Convincian, meaning, if you follow me, that the Fratsfans have ENSLAVED the
Convincians!  You can tell in the way the Convincians are always deferring to them
