                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in ZUWAYZA, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--MAN OR BEAST?.  
What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to THE MOTHERSHIP CC.  LORDS INC. had cause to celebrate, 
after SIR SLEAI got 21 points by beating MOTHER GHEA NEWS.  A certain someone should 
cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 11 points to RAMEX.  
(Discrete enough, FLAMBERGE?) Duelmaster DOTTLE from VISIONS V2 is going for the 
gold, as he challenged THE MOTHERSHIP CC's GRAVITRON.  Ooh, the excitement!  In 
ZUWAYZA, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, 
GRAVITRON.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging 
dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in ZUWAYZA avoid LORDS INC..  Like a pup with its 
tail between its legs, MAN OR BEAST? scurried away from LORDS INC..  Oh, the shame!  
Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and GRAVITRON is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't THE MOTHERSHIP CC proud!  Call 'im brash!  Call 'im 
brassy!  Call 'im brave!  Call 'im sassy!  SHARK NORMAN will face ROBERT REICH, up by 
40.  Aaaah, just call 'im dead meat.  Fixed fights?  Paybacks?  Blind luck?  
Whatever, SHARK NORMAN challenged ROBERT REICH, SHARK NORMAN the underdog by 40 
points.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     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
