                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon MORDANT, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in MORDANT, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--WEIRD STUDENTS.  
Those betting on RUN DMC lost their shirt, as RUN DMC lost their fighting abilities:  
0-4-0.  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to SUPER STARS R US.  MANNEQUIN'S BEST posted a nice gain, to 
come in 3rd.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for NEEDY NATHAN, who 
pummelled MIME WORSHIPPER, to pocket 14 points.  UPBEAT URBAN certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to DARK MIASMA and losing 5 points in the 
process!  In MORDANT, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a 
new Duelmaster, PROBLEM CHILD.  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!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in MORDANT is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
