                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by FONZANOON, of 
THE DEATH SQUAD, who despite a 14-17-0 couldn't overcome TOBIR's Number 1.  Word has 
it one team in TOBIR is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death. 
I'll bet it works.   
     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 Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and SPIKE is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't THE DOGHOUSE proud!  As a confidence booster, DAISY 
challenged SPIKE, down 61 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare 
time, DAISY?  Warriors of TOBIR!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base 
challenge of DAISY?  Willing to win at any cost is KAMIN, who challenged FLOYD-HII, 
13 points junior.  Our sympathies, FLOYD-HII!  I thought KAMIN showed great skill and 
promise when she was overcame by FLOYD-HII.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Charity is unknown in TOBIR, and rightly so.  MENTOR BLISS exacted their 
revenge against THE DEATH SQUAD.  Questions are being raised about the disposing of 
severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in TOBIR would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in TOBIR is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Two-three this time.  Better.  Although if Howel had LISTENED....  I *did* tell him
to leave that jellyfish alone.  You bite them, they sting your tongue.  Oh, well, he
won't do it again, I bet. -- Big Red

Oh, and we salute the tourney participants, a big bark for all of 'em. -- Big Red and
the Doghouse pack
