                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for STEEV, who pummelled TRUE 
BLUE, to pocket 20 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 13 points to STEEV.  (Discrete enough, TRUE BLUE?) Now I 
can't insult DJESEE, as he 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 ZUKAL is 
taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Everyone is famous for fifteen 
minutes, and ZULOR is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't BLUE MOON proud! 
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     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

Febles -- Whew!  That was gallant of you, looked at the right way (and I refuse to
look at it from the other direction, where it was an act of unparalleled hostility
and chauvinism).  I am so glad I don't have to come up with a column. -- True Blue
P.S.  And you don't have to come up with one, either, I guess.

Tonka -- Enough with the sand.  Can't we get some new comments here? -- Zulor

Donahue -- I may be little, but I bite! -- Blue Shrew

Shamahamdi -- (circling to study his opponent from all sides)  You're one of those
mystical philosophers, aren't you?  Well, then, why aren't you living peacefully by
yourself high up in the Daggerspines somewhere? -- Ultorino

Dalton -- Well, heck.  I thought if I didn't fight the same person, I didn't have to
sober.  Screwed again. -- Blue Blotto
P.S.  That was supposed to be "stewed again," but my typist slipped and won't change
it back.

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe

let's get over to 31.  I'm on the way.  Let's get 'em. -- Dark Knight Osiris
