                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TALCAMA.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
YNDEROO MODEL, who pummelled CONVICTED ASSASSIN, to pocket 13 points.  Win some, lose 
some.  Speaking of which, CARELESS WEAPONSMITH was winsome, after beating MISTLETOE 
JAM and seeing it lose 2 points.  Duelmaster IKE from SHEPHERDS is going for the 
gold, as he Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's SPYMISTRESS SHARDA.  Ooh, the 
excitement!  SPYMISTRESS SHARDA found out that TALCAMA isn't a democracy.  You've 
gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in TALCAMA 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!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  SPYMISTRESS SHARDA in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for IKE of SHEPHERDS.  
Maybe that certain serving girl(?) at The Original Arthur's Last Stand will be!  
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.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I 
now bid TALCAMA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
