                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in ZUWAYZA, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--CUNNING RUNTS.  Nothing works for a 
team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as CUNNING RUNTS can 
attest...  I doubt many are quaking in their boots, but BUBBA'S CLAM SHACK comes out 
of nowhere to get 4-1-0.  What does the future hold?  Watch this space...  Practice 
pays for ANGRY CLAM, who pummelled EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, to pocket 20 points.  PAXTON 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to SIR SMASH and losing 
8 points in the process!  Can you believe it?  BULL HALSEY apparently has better 
things to do as ZUWAYZA's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  In ZUWAYZA, nothing is 
permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, SHARK NORMAN.  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 noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of LORDS INC., alone 
and unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, MAN OR BEAST? scurried 
away from LORDS INC..  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, SIR BLUEBELL is the most challenged 
warrior.  Them's the breaks, GARRET.  Expecting fair challenges from MAN OR BEAST? is 
evidently too much to ask.  SHARK NORMAN killed GARRET.  The whole thing leaves a 
bitter memory.  SIR BLUEBELL found himself challenged by a warrior 19 below:  WALTER 
PIDGEON.  WALTER PIDGEON of MAN OR BEAST? kept his wits as he was bested by SIR 
BLUEBELL.  Willing to win at any cost is ROBERT REICH, who challenged DOTTLE, 11 
points junior.  Our sympathies, DOTTLE!  I thought ROBERT REICH showed great skill 
and promise when he defeated DOTTLE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  SHARK NORMAN of MAN OR BEAST? sends GARRET of VISIONS V2 goes to the Weary 
Warrior's Retirement Home.  ZUWAYZA has no place for weaklings!  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!--
