                                      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.  WHO DA MAN??  Who?  
SWEET MAGIC is the top team these days, buddies!  Nothing works for a team like 
victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as DREAMERS can attest...  Good 
things come to those who fight well, as SWEET MAGIC can attest, moving up by 1.  
Practice pays for AMMONIUS, who pummelled JOY OF LOSING, to pocket 14 points.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 7 
points to AMMONIUS.  (Discrete enough, JOY OF LOSING?) What can be a greater victory? 
CHARLENE has taken hers place as the top, as RIZTAB's new Duelmaster.  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!  Perhaps the warriors of BLUE NOTE 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of WHO DA MAN?, so did that sorry team shy from BLUE 
NOTE Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  
Whatever it is, NELLI POLITANA is the most challenged warrior.  Place your bets!  
YODA MAN is the long shot of the week:  they challenged NELLI POLITANA, up by 26.  
NELLI POLITANA had a quite go of it, putting YODA MAN in his place.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  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.  Can anything compare 
to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for RIZTAB?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Our congratulations, and a selection of the finest candies and sweet rolls, to Tatum.
-- Jorja and Sweet Magic

Wow, four-one!  Even the spy reporter commented on it. -- Nelli, for Sweet Magic

Yoda Man -- It's often a pleasure to meet someone who does even worse than I do, but
I still don't like to see either of us sliding down the razor blade of arena life
like that. -- Nelli Politana
P.S.  I liked it that we took turns "standing totally motionless."

Joy of Losing -- May your custard be lumpy! -- Sugar Baby

I'd've killed that traitor if the arenamaster hadn't stopped me. -- Grubstaker

Coltrane -- Bad luck for you. -- Charlene, offering eggnog as a soother

Orc Bait -- You think that'll draw orcs?  And why would you want to? -- Phillia Fox
