                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for MISSOURI WILDLIFE, who 
pummelled EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, to pocket 12 points.  FREE PARKING certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to THE ENQUIRER and losing 7 points in 
the process!  In ZUWAYZA, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves 
a new Duelmaster, GRIZZ GRIMHULT.  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 the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ZUWAYZA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Assur -- I had guessed that about the war flail.  It's especially bad for lungers!

(An input error that I have never forgotten.)  Your absence here will leave a gap in
more ways than simply fewer active fighters.  The Enquirer, particularly, seems to be
going into mourning. -- Jorja

Shortline -- Anti-Magic!  Will Steam Replace Arcane Tools?  Wizards Beware! -- Magic
Today
P.S.  I didn't say that, but Enquirer was so down-in-the-mouth that I had to let him
write the headlines.

Thimble Exposed!  Pea-and-Thimble Challenge Is Rigged!  There Are No Peas! -- The
Enquirer
P.S.  Garbanzo Beans Don't Count.

I buried the Ambitious Guard in the sand.  He seemed to be asking for it. -- Desert
Plants

The Cult Member ignored the moon phases and the current Sign, and thus he lost.
There are some things that must NOT be attempted while the moon is waxing in
Triangularis.  Especially not in the Year of the Migrating Goose. -- Farmers Almanac

Chance Card -- Pernicious piffle. -- Missouri Wildlife

18 March 11
All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
