                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for CHATMON, who pummelled KNEES MCGEE, to pocket 26 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 9 points to ROLL.  (Discrete enough, PRIVATE 1?) PRIVATE 4 found out that 
TRANSEL isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of PSYCHO SQUAD should take 
up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of BALTO, so did that sorry team shy from PSYCHO SQUAD Is it 
charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, 
WILLIE BROWN is the most challenged warrior.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in TRANSEL would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for TRANSEL?  On 
that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
