                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see DARRON LINZ win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
POISON beat BLOOD BATH and BLOOD BATH lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as VIRULENT takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ZENSU's trash dumps?   
     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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ZENSU to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
