                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 8 points to KWEE ZUN ART.  (Discrete enough, 
GALILEO?) Well, Duelmaster ODDLY ELEGANT challenged PAPERBOYS' THROUGH THE WINDOW.  
Is a 11-2-0 good enough?  THROUGH THE WINDOW found out that ZUKAL isn't a democracy.  
You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging 
into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of BLUE MOON should take up 
some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of BLUE MOON found 
their efforts at combat frustrated as DEVIATION apparently had more important things 
to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and THROUGH THE WINDOW is 
it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't PAPERBOYS proud!  DIESEL challenged 
THE TALL MAN!  Who says BUBBA'S HYBRIDS are just a bunch of wimps!  DIESEL of BUBBA'S 
HYBRIDS kept his wits as he beat THE TALL MAN.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Word has it QUEEN is planning on terminating more SERPENTS HOLD 3 members, if they 
have so little to fear from revenge...  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match 
itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZUKAL is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ZUKAL 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Mercury -- I've been poisoned!  That's the only explanation.  Mercury poisoning. --
The Tall Man
P.S.  Us elves are terribly susceptible to that.

Kwee Zun Art -- Damned foreigner!  I never did care for those exotic art styles, and
now I see why. -- Ghost of Orion Stone
P.S.  The steward didn't have to say you did it *easily*.  That's an insult added to
the fatal injury.

At least the rest of us defeated our standbys. -- Wilkerson for the rest of the Blue
