                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  OLDER BY FAR had cause to celebrate, after ACHE got 15 points by 
beating LORIS DEANE.  GAIA certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after 
losing to MORDANT DESERTER and losing 11 points in the process!  A certain someone 
saw RHOMBA at The Victory Tavern with the shakes, and now she fails to show up to 
defend hers throne.  What a pathetic slob!  What can be a greater victory?  CORMEK 
DEANE has taken his place as the top, as ZENSU's new Duelmaster.  So who's the team 
that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt 
to me.   
     And how sociable are ZENSU's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some nasty 
rumors, the guys in CAPTAIN PLANET are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need 
to avoid 'em.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, OLDER BY FAR scurried away 
from CAPTAIN PLANET.  Oh, the shame!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Will OLDER BY FAR never avenge WHEEL CHAIR's death???  Oh brave(?) new world, that 
has such people in it!  'Tis new to me!  Questions are being raised about the 
disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in ZENSU would I 
avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZENSU is the highlight of my life.  My fingers tire 
and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ZENSU?  On 
that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Sorry, all.  Methuselah, after a long Face trip, is taking a nap.  No personals.
Expect him back soon. -- Methuselah's Caretaker, and Older By Far Make-Up Artist

I Say No -- As if! -- Linaea Deane

Our congratulations to Rhomba and Hearing Aid

Earth -- Good thing I decided to go for "unconventional" this time and beat my sword
into a plowshare.  Well, not MY sword, that's no way to treat a fine blade, but *A*
sword. -- Cormek Deane

That One Monkey -- I hope you choke on a peanut shell. -- Linaea Deane

I have to wonder about these Ambitious Guards.  They must surely see what happens to
others of their ilk in the arena, and yet they keep coming. -- Marlin Kole

Dangerous indeed, that Criminal. -- Loris Deane

Ache -- Ah, yes, the old familiar ways.  Ouch. -- Coolin Dunn, looking for a hot tub
