                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in ZUKAL, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--BLUE MOON.  BLUE 
MOON posted a nice gain, to come in 2nd.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays 
for KINGFISHER, who pummelled CAPTURED ORC, to pocket 13 points.  Win some, lose 
some.  Speaking of which, KUNG-FU MASTER was winsome, after beating MORAVIA MAUVE and 
seeing her lose 15 points.  Can you believe it?  KEEL HAULER apparently has better 
things to do as ZUKAL's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a greater 
victory?  BLHU MURTHER has taken his place as the top, as ZUKAL's new Duelmaster.  
Word has it one team in ZUKAL is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent 
to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are ZUKAL's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     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.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Tight Blouse -- Wow!  On you, it looks really, really good. -- Kingfisher
P.S.  Or really tacky.  I'm nost sure which.

Keel Hauler -- Graduate, drat you. -- Moravia Mauve

Sea Legs -- Keep on staggering, ma'am--preferably in my direction.  I won't let you
down. -- Blhu Murther

Why should I have to associate with Dangerous Criminals? -- Bisbee Blue

M. Chardinee?  Not a problem. -- Saffira

Our congratulations to Keel Hauler. -- Jorja and the Blue Moon bunch

Finally! -- Moravia and Blhu

Lord Protector Keel Hauler -- We'd like to offer you lands, piracy being something
that we understand and do not sneer at here in Zukal, but unless you want to go seize
an estate or village on the Karnhorn coast, I don't know where you'd find 'em.  Well,
other coasts, if you want to go farther, of course.  We'd support you in that with
trade agreements.  Other than that, times are hard.  Good fortune, whatever your
ultimate decision. -- Arenamaster Zrof One-Eye
P.S.  Yes, I know, it's the same offer I made your teammate a while back.  What can I
say?  This is the boilerplate for lands in Zukal.
