                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at BLUE MOON left the arena dejected, 
after being kicked out of the top spot by HOT STUFF.  Good show!  SERPENTS HOLD 3 had 
cause to celebrate, after RECOIL got 20 points by beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 5 
points to KATANA.  (Discrete enough, JED TARRAN DAPP?) Duelmaster G-STRING from HOT 
STUFF is going for the gold, as she challenged BLUE MOON's BLAMMO.  Ooh, the 
excitement!  G-STRING successfully staved off a grab for the roses by BLAMMO of BLUE 
MOON.  Does ZUKAL have no one talented enough to dethrone her?  Word has it one team 
in ZUKAL is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in THE 
WILLBURYS 9 are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The 
warriors of THE WILLBURYS 9 found their efforts at combat frustrated as PAPERBOYS 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for 
fifteen minutes, and BLAMMO is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't BLUE 
MOON proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in ZUKAL would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZUKAL is the highlight of my life.  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

Jed -- Just call me the teacher.  With all the skills that I've taught, you would do
good in the tourney. -- Window

Jed -- You should listen to Jorja about all the bleep, bleep, bleeping.  No one wants
to be struck by lighting. -- Window

We salute Zukal's tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Blue Moons

Through the Window -- Hmm, looks like we need to work on the skill pipeline.  It's
running the wrong way.  Almost scriptural:  To them that have, more shall be given,
and all that.  Not that I'm bursting with skills myself, but I do have SOME.  More
now, of course.  Well, I'm willing to keep working on this. -- Jed Tarran Dapp

Tight Blouse -- I was panting too much to fight back.  In fact, I had no desire to
fight back.... -- Blue Streak

We Will Rock You, and Howlin' Wolf -- That was unintentional.  Still, it happened,
and if you want to bloodfeud, I'll be here. -- Blammo

The Venomous Concubine wiggled her hips at me, and I was lost, lost I tell you! --
