                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  BIG LAKE MUSCLE had cause to celebrate, after 
LAURI KIZER got 31 points by beating LONGBOW.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, LAURI KIZER was winsome, after beating LONGBOW and seeing him lose 16 points.  
Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by KHALHUMS DWARF, of ZENSU, 
who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome ZENSU's Number 1.  Word has it one team in 
ZENSU is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are ZENSU's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in ZENSU would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  ZENSU, I leave you 
now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Victory Tavern.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir
