                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at THE SIERRAS left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  Good show! 
Practice pays for LOREN, who pummelled (PLAIN WRAPPER), to pocket 35 points.  (PLAIN 
WRAPPER) certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to LOREN and 
losing 9 points in the process!  A certain someone saw TMARACK at The Drunken Ox with 
the shakes, and now he fails to show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  
Now I can't insult JERRY ATTRICKS, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great 
new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in ZUWAYZA 
is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.  
     And how sociable are ZUWAYZA's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in ZUWAYZA avoid VALHALLA.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of SWEDEN, so did that sorry team shy 
from VALHALLA Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, WHITE WOLF is the most challenged warrior.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  ZUWAYZA, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Drunken Ox.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
