                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at FANTASTIC FIVE II left the arena dejected, after being 
kicked out of the top spot by F IS FOR FROG.  Good show!  What's a move up by 3 you 
ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to F IS FOR 
FROG.  Practice pays for LEOPARD, who pummelled SIBATA THE THIEF, to pocket 13 
points.  Can you believe it?  THING apparently has better things to do as RIZTAB's 
Duelmaster than show up and fight!  Now I can't insult PERICTIONE, as she has 
gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on 
too thick) Word has it one team in RIZTAB is taking speech lessons to try to bore 
their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  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, F IS FOR FROG scurried away from PURE POISON.  Oh, the shame!   
     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.   
     Do not think spyreporting in RIZTAB is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
