                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ZUKAL, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  BLUE MOON had cause to celebrate, after KINGFISHER 
got 27 points by beating EIGHTH MATE.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
KINGFISHER was winsome, after beating EIGHTH MATE and seeing her lose 23 points.  
Well, Duelmaster SEA LEGS Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's MOUNTAIN TROLL.  Is a 
19-9-2 good enough?  The crowds were amazed this turn, as MOUNTAIN TROLL killed the 
Duelmaster, SEA LEGS, leaving SEA DOGS in mourning.  Even 71 points weren't good 
enough to save SEA LEGS from BLHU MURTHER.  ZUKAL welcomes BLHU MURTHER as the new 
Duelmaster!  Word has it one team in ZUKAL is using psychics to predict wins.  They 
lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are ZUKAL's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Can anything compare to the 
pleasure of writing Spyreports for ZUKAL?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- 
Novgorodny Vir
