                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  BLUE MOON had cause to celebrate, after WATERLILY GIRL got 13 points by 
beating KHALHUMS DWARF.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 14 points to CAPTURED ORC.  (Discrete enough, CYONE?) Now 
I can't insult MERCURY, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new 
Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in ZUKAL is 
using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZUKAL is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ZUKAL 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

(though less experienced, probably, with hidden tourney fights you never really know)
gladiator.  Still, could be worse! -- Cyone
P.S.  And this despite my loss to a Dangerous Criminal.

Mercury -- I was thinking it was a case of "The Mercury" overpowered me, and I was
going to yell, "Darn right!"  Then I realized it was just you, and not the beginning
of summer temperatures.  Oh, well. -- Wilkerson

Galileo -- You've got a lot of nerve!  Dropping things from towers, hitting me in the
head with lead weights!  I really didn't care for that. -- Waterlily Girl

The thing is, he really IS a Dangerous Criminal. -- Cyone

Kung-Fu Masters are often silly.  This one was. -- The Tall Man
P.S.  It was his parries, he kept getting "struck on the arm by the parry."  He
needed a shield.

Miller -- That's 'cause I can hold my beer. -- Bisbee Bill
P.S.  Or your beer.
