                                      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.  SWEET MAGIC had cause 
to celebrate, after NELLI POLITANA got 19 points by beating ELLA FITZ.  HERBIE 
HANCOCK certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to IZZY 
BERNSTEIN and losing 13 points in the process!  What can be a greater victory?  
XENOPHANES has taken his place as the top, as RIZTAB's new Duelmaster.  Word has it 
one team in RIZTAB is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  
I'll bet it works.   
     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...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid RIZTAB farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
