                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon RIZTAB, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for BLACK HEART, who pummelled LEOVAR 
THE PROUD, to pocket 19 points.  ASPASIA certainly had a baffled expression on hers 
face, after losing to HULL SCRUBBER and losing 14 points in the process!  A certain 
someone saw GUILLOTINE at The Dripping Blade with the shakes, and now he fails to 
show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  In RIZTAB, nothing is permanent 
(except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, ACE.  Word has it one team in 
RIZTAB is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are RIZTAB's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Citizens of 
RIZTAB, be sure to settle your debts with SCURVY LADY of SEA DOGS.  She's relocating 
to the Dark Arena and has other things on hers mind!  Admittedly Death waits for no 
one, but me thinks SCURVY LADY of SEA DOGS (17-2-0) is being sent off a little 
prematurely.  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be 
wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not despair!  I 
shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Hull Scrubber -- Make sure you get that thing CLEAN.  I'm not serving my best lemon
pie on a dirty hull. -- Dora Bell

Aspasia -- Argh! -- Ghost of Givorsa Jimh

Aristoclea -- Go ahead, laugh, I won't care.  If I can hear you laugh, I'm still
alive, and these days, that's saying something. -- Donnamira

Black Heart -- Licorice?  I hadn't thought of that.  Don't much care for it, truth to
tell, but I suppose I could make some.  You're sure? -- Nonellia

Diamond King -- It isn't true what they say about "diamonds are a girl's best
friends."  Close, but not true. -- Korydice

Our heartfelt congratulations to Scurvy Lady. -- Jorja and Sweet Magic
