                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in LYRATILAN, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--WEIRD STUDENTS.  
WHEEL OF TIME after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and 
taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  Nothing works for a team like 
victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as ERRATA can attest...  Practice 
pays for SMOKING MINA, who pummelled BOSSY BETTY, to pocket 15 points.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 10 points to 
IRIS.  (Discrete enough, THE POSTMAN?) VETERAN MERCENARY found out that LYRATILAN 
isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one 
team in LYRATILAN 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?  If challenges were horses, DUCT could open up a 
fast food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Those who owe DA1 of SAY MY NAME money and had written him off, take note:  
he'S BACK FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Justice was served as CUDDLY CATHY 
fought BAILEY JAY in bloodfeud.  Well done, WEIRD STUDENTS!  Ask not a spymaster for 
counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  LYRATILAN, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Piper's Rest.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
