                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ZUKAL, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for WATERLILY GIRL, who pummelled 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, to pocket 10 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 5 points to BICYCLE RACE.  (Discrete enough, 
WILKERSON?) In ZUKAL, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a 
new Duelmaster, KING RAT.  Word has it one team in ZUKAL is taking speech lessons to 
try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     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
