                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for DAMIEN, who pummelled 
MORDANT DESERTER, to pocket 15 points.  JED TARRAN DAPP certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to TOREADOR and losing 2 points in the process!  
BLAMMO found out that ZUKAL isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  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 QUEEN are 
not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of DARK WARDS, so did that sorry team shy from QUEEN 
Mismatched by 12 points, CLARISSA TEAL lost to LUCIFER.  Is this really worth noting? 
I thought LUCIFER showed great skill and promise when he overcame CLARISSA TEAL.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Perhaps BLUE MOON's manager was intending to send NERISA TEAL to the Dark Arena in 
the first place, seeing as how bloodfeud has nearly expired.  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.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
