                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  HOUSE JHEREG?  Who?  FOOT OF PRIDE is the top team these days, buddies! 
Say what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, but CHILDREN OF LLYR will tell 
you 1112-1432-37 is nothing to laugh at...  Duelmaster DERAFF from HOUSE JHEREG is 
going for the gold, as it challenged FOOT OF PRIDE's VANITY.  Ooh, the excitement!  
Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by VANITY, of FOOT OF PRIDE, 
who despite a 14-4-1 couldn't overcome MURSKA's Number 1.  Word has it one team in 
MURSKA is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it 
works.   
     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 FOOT OF PRIDE, alone and unchallenged.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, HOUSE JHEREG scurried away from FOOT OF 
PRIDE.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and VANITY is it 
right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't FOOT OF PRIDE proud!  FOOL ME ONCE... 
challenged ERNA!  Who says SAME OLD TRICKS are just a bunch of wimps!  FOOL ME 
ONCE... of SAME OLD TRICKS kept his wits as he beat ERNA.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Charity is unknown in MURSKA, and rightly so.  FOOT OF PRIDE exacted their 
revenge against HOUSE JHEREG.  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself 
must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed 
simile, I now bid MURSKA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
