                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon KOLACT, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Those betting on MEDAL OF HONOR lost their shirt, as 
MEDAL OF HONOR lost their fighting abilities:  0-2-0.  Practice pays for 
JORMAUNGARDR, who pummelled AS11, to pocket 13 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, ATONEMENT was winsome, after beating HOARDERS and seeing her lose 
7 points.  KHALHUMS DWARF found out that KOLACT isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be 
the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns 
last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of MEDAL OF HONOR 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of THE MENTORS, so did that sorry team shy from MEDAL 
OF HONOR Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and HOARDERS is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't ABOMINATION proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Admittedly 
Death waits for no one, but me thinks SERGEANT 2 of MEDAL OF HONOR (6-2-0) is being 
sent off a little prematurely.  Questions are being raised about the disposing of 
severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in KOLACT would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not despair!  I 
shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
