                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ZUKAL.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain in 
ZUKAL, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top 
team--BLUE MOON.  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive 
observation?) as BREWERS can attest...  BREWERS had cause to celebrate, after BILL 
HALL got 13 points by beating DENTINE.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 7 points to DD.  (Discrete enough, NEWLIN?) 
In ZUKAL, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new 
Duelmaster, ULTORINO.  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!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of FANGS, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of FANGS found their efforts at combat frustrated as DARK WARDS apparently 
had more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  
Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, NOSFERATU is the most 
challenged warrior.  NOSFERATU found herself challenged by a warrior 19 below:  
MADNESS.  MADNESS of RAGE OF ANGELS kept his wits as he was bested by NOSFERATU.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     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.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ZUKAL farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Incisor as Duelmaster?  Degrading, I say. -- Brujah (Prepping then after YOU)

Blu Jon -- Beware!  You are laughing off more than you can chew. -- Brujah

The Kung-Fu Master, curse him!  I never wanted to learn kung-fu, that's why there
are crossbows in the world, and swords.  Gods, what a...PERSON!  At least he doesn't
get to write a column, and neither do I have to. -- Ultorino

Newlin -- Now, sweety, you want to be careful about that.  People will look at your
record and say, "This is a killer, let's be mean and nasty to her."  Why, I might
have said it myself, except that it's too much trouble to get all mean and nasty.
What you need to do is ease off, kick back (which will startle and dismay anyone
standing behind you), and enjoy life. -- Blu Jon
P.S.  I'll help.

Dentine -- Like I'm going to be friendly to an imperfect stranger who walks up and
starts checking out my teeth?  As if!  Be glad I didn't bite you, too. -- Bluette

Glindora -- I envy your height, therefore, of course, I had to do what I could to
cut you down to MY size. -- Bleu Bonet

Dd -- You'd better NOT have been laughing, you bearded pig! -- Blubelle
