                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  NEXT GENERATION?  Who?  TOP DOGS is the top team these days, buddies!  
He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe 
SHEPHERDS.  Last week they got 1-1-0 to drop by 4!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  
(alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to STREET PIZZA.  
Good things come to those who fight well, as TOP DOGS can attest, moving up by 0.  
Practice pays for BUSY BEE, who pummelled TOO SUAVE, to pocket 16 points.  YIPE! 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE 
and losing 19 points in the process!  Well, Duelmaster STRAWBABERRY Dark Arena 
Challenged DARK ARENA's STONE GOLEM.  Is a 15-7-0 good enough?  The crowds were 
amazed this turn, as STONE GOLEM killed the Duelmaster, STRAWBABERRY, leaving 
BEEFCAKES in mourning.  Even 68 points weren't good enough to save STRAWBABERRY from 
BUSY BEE.  TALCAMA welcomes BUSY BEE as the new Duelmaster!  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!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of SHEPHERDS, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of SHEPHERDS found their efforts at combat frustrated as TOP DOGS apparently 
had more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  
Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, BUSY BEE 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 TALCAMA would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in TALCAMA is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  TALCAMA, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
The Original Arthur's Last Stand.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
