                                      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!  Practice pays for MUD MUD FROG, who pummelled NELLI POLITANA, to 
pocket 17 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, ELEVENTH was winsome, 
after beating KOKO LEAH and seeing her lose 6 points.  What can be a greater victory? 
DIZZY GILLESPIE has taken his place as the top, as RIZTAB's new Duelmaster.  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  KORYNN FROG challenged TATUM!  Who 
says KAOS FROGS are just a bunch of wimps!  KORYNN FROG of KAOS FROGS kept his wits 
as he bested TATUM.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  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.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid RIZTAB farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir
