                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ZUWAYZA, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at MONOPOLY left the arena dejected, 
after being kicked out of the top spot by MOM'S STUFF.  Good show!  Those betting on 
MONOPOLY lost their shirt, as MONOPOLY lost their fighting abilities:  0-5-0.  
Practice pays for DONKEY HOTAY, who pummelled MR MONEY BAGS, to pocket 16 points.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 10 
points to OUT HOUSE.  (Discrete enough, TAXES DUE?) HEMLOCK successfully staved off a 
grab for the roses by FREE PARKING of MONOPOLY.  Does ZUWAYZA have no one talented 
enough to dethrone it?  Word has it one team in ZUWAYZA is using psychics to predict 
wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are ZUWAYZA's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the 
warriors of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS should take up some hobbies, as they are the most 
avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, MOM'S STUFF scurried away 
from THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, WATER WORKS 
could open up a fast food joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in ZUWAYZA would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZUWAYZA is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid 
ZUWAYZA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Hi.  Thanks for being nice to me.  This new team of mine-- I went to Mom's house and
saw all this old stuff and viola!  And Terrablood helped.  So, I'm here. -- The Kid
from Mom's Stuff

Two kills!  Yay!  Wow!  I guess the Embezzling Scribe is dead dead. -- The Kid

     It never lasts.

I think that whoever loaded my Phonograph into Terrablood made a mistake, so you
might want to fix it. -- The Kid

Our congratulations to The Great Gazoo.  Been a long time since we've had any Cunning
Runts here. -- Jorja and the Magnificent Mags

Beetle Bailey -- That was a giant among saguaros you just destroyed, you know.
Beetles are very damaging. -- Missouri Wildlife
P.S.  Oh, right, I'm not supposed to care about the DESERT plants.  Well, okay, those
off-color hussy-bugs are poisoning the fish in the Lake of the Ozarks?  After all,
they MIGHT be doing that.

I'm going to have to research Venomous Concubines and How to Deal with Them. -- Magic
Today
P.S.  The anti-snake spells don't work, and the charm-women spells don't, either!

Water Works -- You're behind the times, I have ALREADY advised people to stock up on
sandbags. -- Farmers Almanac
P.S.  And snow fencing.

Taxes Due -- Dark Plot Disclosed!  False Taxes!  Misappropriations!  Read All About
It! -- News-Optic

Easter Bonnet -- You weren't supposed to DO that!  I'm a DRAGON, after all. -- Dragon
