                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ALJAFIR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at ZOMBIE 
SQUAD 2 left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by MIDDLE 
WAY.  Good show!  Practice pays for BARNUM CHELLS, who pummelled ARAGON, to pocket 12 
points.  GANDALF certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to BUD 
LIGHT and losing 6 points in the process!  CORNBREAD STUFFING successfully staved off 
a grab for the roses by KAIREEN LAMAR of MIDDLE WAY.  Does ALJAFIR have no one 
talented enough to dethrone her?  Word has it one team in ALJAFIR is using psychics 
to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  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 ALJAFIR?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir
