                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ZORPUNT, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  GANG GRENE-BAX?  Who?  KRILL CAVALRY is the top 
team these days, buddies!  Practice pays for TERI LARK, who pummelled EMBEZZLING 
SCRIBE, to pocket 20 points.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed 
by BUBBA JONES, of KRILL CAVALRY, who despite a 18-10-0 couldn't overcome ZORPUNT's 
Number 1.  Word has it one team in ZORPUNT is taking speech lessons to try to bore 
their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, BILL POOLE is the most challenged 
warrior.  Place your bets!  KING BROWN SNAKE is the long shot of the week:  they 
challenged BILL POOLE, up by 29.  Fixed fights?  Paybacks?  Blind luck?  Whatever, 
KING BROWN SNAKE challenged BILL POOLE, KING BROWN SNAKE the underdog by 29 points.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ZORPUNT?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
