                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon RIZTAB, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  SWEET MAGIC?  Who?  DREAMERS is the top team these 
days, buddies!  DREAMERS had cause to celebrate, after EURIPEDES got 22 points by 
beating KISSA BELLE.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 17 points to EURIPEDES.  (Discrete enough, KISSA BELLE?) PHILOLAUS 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by CARLOTTA of SWEET MAGIC.  Does RIZTAB 
have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who's the team that's been walking 
into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of 
writing Spyreports for RIZTAB?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Philolaus -- I'm doing chocolate today, and no distractions.  If you can find
yourself happy with chocolate--pie, I think, for starters, maybe with meringue--why,
bring it on!  There's enough to go around. -- Carlotta

Fred was Unready, so nothing for HIM.  It's vanilla fudge with dried apricots and
raisins and chopped nuts today.  And I suppose if you MUST have something else first,
we could run to some bread and cheese.  We have good cheese and better bread, though
I say it myself. -- Kissa Belle

Leovar the Proud couldn't be half so proud of whatever HE has as I am of what I
produced today.  This angelfood cake is SOOO light, I have to tie it to the table to
keep it from floating way. -- Dora Bell

Oh, gods, this is so embarrassing!  And I have recipes to work on still.  I think I'd
better reincarnate. -- Ghost of Tinakarina

I don't BELIEVE this Khazrho the Zukali!  He claims to be a Shew, but it's barely
five and a half feet tall.  That's not Shewish if you ask ME. -- Benissa
P.S.  And why not ask me?  The Commission thinks I'm a Shew, too, even though I'm not
six feet tall--I think that's the minimum height for members of the Shewish Choir and
Bear Dancers Club.

Greetings All -- This is Vincent Michaels, "the Rake", mgr. of the Stormbringers out
of DM 33 Niatoli Island, back after a relatively long layoff.  I come back to my
arena to find only two other teams there.  Terrible!  I'm calling on all you managers
out there who have inactive teams in Niatoli to put them back in the game.  Also,
anyone else who wants to come check out our little island are welcome.  Good food and
a lot of good gambling, and you will have a chance to smack around Gen. GirlPants and
his band of Ravaged Queens.  Great fun.  Come one, come all!
