                                      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.  Practice pays for 
HEMPEN JIG, who pummelled SAFFIRA, to pocket 18 points.  SAFFIRA certainly had a 
baffled expression on hers face, after losing to HEMPEN JIG and losing 12 points in 
the process!  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, BUT MORAVIA 
MAUVE is still the Duelmaster because she has the most recognition points!  So who's 
the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a 
PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in ZUKAL would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  ZUKAL, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Blue 
Boar Inn.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
