                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon RIZTAB, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  SPIRIT'S REALM had cause to celebrate, after SPECTRE 
got 17 points by beating COLOSSUS.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 11 points to LOUIE ARMSTRONG.  (Discrete enough, 
NECRO-MAN CY?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by KLEPTO MAN, 
of WHO DA MAN?, who despite a 7-3-0 couldn't overcome RIZTAB's Number 1.  So who's 
the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a 
PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of PURE POISON should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, FANTASTIC FIVE II scurried away from PURE POISON.  Oh, the shame!  
Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever 
it is, COLTRANE is the most challenged warrior.  As a confidence booster, GAZZA 
challenged COLTRANE, down 18 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare 
time, GAZZA?  GAZZA defeated COLTRANE.  The whole thing leaves a bitter memory.  T-4 
STRAIN challenged BLACK BOLT!  Who says WHO DA MAN? are just a bunch of wimps!  T-4 
STRAIN of WHO DA MAN? kept his wits as he lost to BLACK BOLT.  Mismatched by 14 
points, MYIA was defeated by FLASH.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought FLASH 
showed great skill and promise when he won victory over MYIA.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in RIZTAB is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

One-four (victory over a standby) and a death.  Not one of our better efforts.
Peaches N Cream, okay, very seasonal, because canned peaches do NOT make the grade,
and her season was over.  Too bad, we liked her.  But there will be others as good in
the future.  Ah, that's "good in the kitchen," not "good in the arena." -- Chocoholic

Thing -- I often find myself looking like that at the end of a rough day in the
kitchen.  But I'm still chocolate, than which few things are better. -- Chocoholic

Agony -- My dear, you are taking life too seriously.  Burtal diets are NOT a virtue.
Try a little personal indulgence now and then. -- 
Phillia Fox

Telauges -- I bet I'm everything you dream about, big boy!  (smile and wiggle) --
Honey Chile

Telauges -- Forgive her, if you can.  Orcs are like that.  At least, the female ones
are. -- Chocoholic

Bleeding Gums -- (weeping ectoplasmic tears)  I didn't think it was serious! -- Ghost
of Peaches N Cream
