                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Good things come to those who fight well, as 
THE CHOSEN can attest, moving up by 0.  Z GLADIATORZ had cause to celebrate, after 
ZULU got 27 points by beating MAUD STONEGUT.  MAUD STONEGUT certainly had a baffled 
expression on hers face, after losing to ZULU and losing 24 points in the process!  
The arena was more crowded than usual this time, as ETON THE STALWART faced ARKERS' 
Duelmaster.  Now I can't insult ETON THE STALWART, as he has gloriously dueled to the 
top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one 
team in ARKERS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in HOYT FOUNDATION are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  
The warriors of HOYT FOUNDATION found their efforts at combat frustrated as BLOODY 
HAND CLAN apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming 
personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, KYRON 
FLEMING is the most challenged warrior.  CORRECT CHANGE challenged KYRON FLEMING!  
Who says BB PUBLIC TRANSIT are just a bunch of wimps!  CORRECT CHANGE of BB PUBLIC 
TRANSIT kept his wits as he beat KYRON FLEMING.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  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
