                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  TRIBE had cause to celebrate, after DA1 got 6 
points by beating BRUTAL ASSAULT.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, CAPTURED 
ORC was winsome, after beating SPACE PROGRAM and seeing him lose 7 points.  Those who 
hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by LATER ALLIGATOR, of TRIBE, who 
despite a 11-5-0 couldn't overcome ZORPUNT's Number 1.  Word has it one team in 
ZORPUNT 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?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Citizens of ZORPUNT, be sure to settle your debts with FUNKY DIABETIC of 
TRIBE.  He's relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on his mind!  The 
manager at TRIBE must have some new strategy for sending FUNKY DIABETIC, a warrior 
with 10-5-0, to the Dark Arena.  Watch this space!  Ask not for whom the sword 
slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     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.  Can anything compare 
to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ZORPUNT?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir

I am undertaking a fiction-writing project on the Patreon website, under my own name
of Judith Solberg.  It isn't the kind of story I might put in the newsletter, but I
think some of you might enjoy it.  I don't know how much you can see if you just
cruise by, but they tell me it's up and open. -- Jorja
