                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ZUKAL.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  THE INSANE GROUP after 
a sorry 0-0-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 
'Can't fight no more' blues!  DARK WARDS had cause to celebrate, after NIGHTMARE got 
13 points by beating JOKER.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, DANGEROUS 
CRIMINAL was winsome, after beating SISTER BEAR and seeing her lose 17 points.  What 
can be a greater victory?  CRAZED WILDEBEEST has taken his place as the top, as 
ZUKAL's new Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls 
and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in ZUKAL avoid SPROUT OF IT.  The warriors of SPROUT 
OF IT found their efforts at combat frustrated as DARK WARDS apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, CRAZED WILDEBEEST 
could open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
ZUKAL would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZUKAL is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ZUKAL?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

             ATTENTION:  ALL MANAGERS WHO ARE ATTENDING THE FACE-TO-FACE

If you plan to attend the Winter Face-to-Face in Phoenix, please let Customer Service 
know.  We will hold your turns for the few days preceding the tourney, starting with 
anything that would mail out on the previous Saturday.  (This means that games due on 
Thursday the 9th (which would mail on Friday) would probably mail to you, but games 
due on the 10th and thereafter will be held and delivered to you at the tournament.  
This way, you won't have to worry about not receiving a critical turn before you 
depart for Newark, and you also don't have to worry about whether you can get a 
reprint before the first turn of the tournament is due.  

See you there!
