                                      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.  Practice pays for WHEN, 
who pummelled HEZASH THE MOUTH, to pocket 19 points.  WHERE certainly had a baffled 
expression on its face, after losing to KUNG PO FROG and losing 11 points in the 
process!  Well, Duelmaster HULL SCRUBBER Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's HEZDLAT 
THE GIANT.  Is a 12-0-3 good enough?  HEZDLAT THE GIANT found out that RIZTAB isn't a 
democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior 
seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of DREAMERS should take 
up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, CARDS scurried away from DREAMERS.  Oh, the shame!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Those who owe HULL 
SCRUBBER of SEA DOGS money and had written him off, take note:  he'S BACK FROM THE 
DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for 
thee.   
     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

So, the people of Riztab have turned away from us, are not interested in our product.
Hmm.  I blame the emphasis on "losing weight."  Foolishness, but it's fashionable at
the moment.  We shall persevere. -- Lady Protector Dorabelle, speaking for the Sweet
Magic artists

Alcmaeon -- And well your fans SHOULD fall silent!  That was a rude thing to say.
Still, I will forgive you, and I might even make gyros and baklava. -- Donnamira

Devar the Traitor -- I don't see why I should be nice to you.  Even if you
prepetrated treason against an enemy of Riztab, who can trust a turncoat?  And the
worst of it is, you probably felt you were doing the right thing at the time.  Ah,
well, life is always complicated. -- Jaylene Mokhar

Martos Chard -- You really annoyed me. -- Lorimera
P.S.  And confirmed my dislike of beet greens.

Albatross -- Does this make you a Dirty Bird? -- Jouella
P.S.  I could wish you wouldn't keep draping yourself around my neck, although I
suppose it would be worse if you weren't such a pipsqueak.

Critias -- Do not look at me, sir, as the "answer to your dreams."  I am not a
candidate for wifehood or even a mild substitute.  The only thing I cook well is
pancakes. -- Miriamina
P.S.  Which includes a lot of related stuff, but still.
