                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of RIZTAB.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  SEA DOGS had cause to 
celebrate, after HULL SCRUBBER got 16 points by beating BLACK BARTOK.  GIVORSA JIMH 
certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to GUILLOTINE and 
losing 8 points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by ASPASIA, of DREAMERS, who despite a 9-8-0 couldn't overcome RIZTAB's 
Number 1.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering 
milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in RIZTAB avoid DREAMERS.  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, BLADES OF TERROR scurried away from DREAMERS.  Oh, the shame!  Is 
it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it 
is, LUSINTILLA OBAN is the most challenged warrior.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Admittedly 
Death waits for no one, but me thinks SALVAGE of SEA DOGS (2-0-1) is being sent off a 
little prematurely.  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be 
wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for RIZTAB?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Scurvy Lady -- I've a feeling we'll be meeting again and again until you graduate or
I die, so let's get friendly here.  There's more to life than food, after all--at
least, once you HAVE good food.  Do you like dancing, do you make quilts, are you a
gardener, or what else might we talk about than food?  I can't say I'm a dancer,
much, no chances, but the other two I could talk about.  Maybe an interest in the
latest gossip to come down from the hills?  (There are advantages to having Shewish
kin all over the countryside between here and Murska.) -- Dora Bell

Aspasia -- Right, if you talk, your face will crack.  I get that.  But can you eat
baklava? -- Donnamira

Aristoclea -- That's practically the name of a plant, aristolochia.  Okay, not
identical, but I never said it was.  Never did care for them, but what the heck,
every plant has it's place in the world.  Just, that one isn't going to share my
place.  You, however, might be different.  Don't get the idea I'm flirting with you,
though!  I'm not that kind of woman.  But I've got something I think is rather good
in the way an apricot pastry, and I need taste-testers.  You up for it? -- Givorsa
Jimh

Archytas -- I never did care for red hair on a man, and you make my point rather
(ouch!) painfully.  Still, I've got some rather tricky chile candies here, if you'd
care to do a test on them? -- Gaylene Vollas

Alchmaeon -- I looked at you, thinking to invite you test my latest pie, and then I
had to say, "No, this is a meat and potatoes man, he wouldn't like a Fratsfan Silk
Pie.  Pound cake for this guy."  I could do a pound cake, though.  Lemon, I think,
with a dusting of powdered sugar on it. -- Lusintilla Oban
P.S.  And the roast and potatoes, too, of course.
