                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ZUKAL, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for THE CHAMPION, who pummelled BISBEE 
BILL, to pocket 19 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 11 points to THE CHAMPION.  (Discrete enough, BISBEE 
BILL?) WILKERSON found out that ZUKAL isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to 
be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in ZUKAL is using psychics to predict wins. 
They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  ZUKAL, I leave you 
now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Blue Boar Inn.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir
