                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon RIZTAB, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in RIZTAB, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--DREAMERS.  PURE 
POISON after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and taking up 
singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  What's a move up by 5 you ask?  (alright, 
maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to FANTASTIC FIVE II.  
Practice pays for HANK MOODY, who pummelled SAILOR JERRY, to pocket 16 points.  Win 
some, lose some.  Speaking of which, HANK MOODY was winsome, after beating SAILOR 
JERRY and seeing him lose 13 points.  THING successfully staved off a grab for the 
roses by JIM BEAM of BLACKED OUT ON....  Does RIZTAB have no one talented enough to 
dethrone him?  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in DREAMERS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, FANTASTIC FIVE II scurried away from DREAMERS.  
Oh, the shame!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in RIZTAB would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in RIZTAB 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 RIZTAB?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
