                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  VISIONS V2 had cause to celebrate, after TREME 
got 25 points by beating HOUSE BEAUTIFUL.  HOUSE BEAUTIFUL certainly had a baffled 
expression on hers face, after losing to TREME and losing 22 points in the process!  
RAMEX successfully staved off a grab for the roses by MOTHER GHEA NEWS of THE 
MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  Does ZUWAYZA have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in ZUWAYZA avoid VISIONS V2.  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of KARNHORN KARNAGE, so did that sorry team shy from VISIONS V2 
Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever 
it is, EVERYBRIDE is the most challenged warrior.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
I hear CATFISH HUNTER of MAN OR BEAST? tired of the battles and was thinking of 
becoming a priest.  LANNIER of VISIONS V2 saved him the effort of getting references. 
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZUWAYZA is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ZUWAYZA?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Four-one?  Very GOOD.  And only two of those wins were over standbys.  I see that
Everybride still hasn't worked out a satisfactory wedding plan with Lannier, but
these things take time. -- Mother Ghea News

I don't see how anyone can be CALM in the face of our new teammate!  Travel!  What a
loathesome idea.  Much better to stay home and enjoy the perfect environment. --
