                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TOBIR, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  THE DOGHOUSE had cause to celebrate, after OLD HOWEL 
got 18 points by beating KHALHUMS DWARF.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
DARK HELMET was winsome, after beating BIG RED and seeing him lose 13 points.  
JELLYFISH found out that TOBIR 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.   
     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 THE DEATH SQUAD should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of MENTOR BLISS, so did that sorry team shy from THE 
DEATH SQUAD Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, SPIKE is the most challenged warrior.  Them's the breaks, 
SPIKE.  Expecting fair challenges from MENTOR BLISS is evidently too much to ask.  
DAISY overcame SPIKE.  The whole thing leaves a bitter memory.  Mismatched by 14 
points, FONZANOON lost to KAMIN.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought KAMIN 
showed great skill and promise when she won victory over FONZANOON.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  TOBIR, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Deeproot Inn.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

One-four and a death.  Not good.  I really feel the need to bite someone.  M.
Chardinee... eh.  Not really worth it.  He doesn't seem to CARE if he gets bitten.
What's the use of that?  Biting someone should make an IMPRESSION on them, and more
than just the teeth, you know?  They should understand that they've been chastized.
Maybe we should try a rolled-up newspaper on THEM. -- Big Red
