                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in VEASTIAN, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--TOLBIN'S X-MEN.  Practice pays for 
CYCLONE, who pummelled LOLITA MARIA, to pocket 17 points.  A certain someone should 
cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 57 points to ZILLA KHIRNAJ.  
(Discrete enough, THE BIG UNIT?) XOWIE found out being VEASTIAN's Duelmaster isn't 
all nuts and berries, receiving 2 challenges!  The arena was more crowded than usual 
this time, as LYRICAL DRUGGIST faced VEASTIAN's Duelmaster.  Now I can't insult 
LYRICAL DRUGGIST, as she has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new 
Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who's the team that's been 
walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of BATTLE FROGS 12-15, alone and unchallenged.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, ORL 2013K scurried away from BATTLE FROGS 
12-15.  Oh, the shame!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in VEASTIAN is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for VEASTIAN?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Two-three.  Same old deal.  Could be worse.  Probably will be, once the new guy
starts fighting.  He looks like a bit of an ass.  Makes him a big target. -- Zilla

     No doubt he'll have plenty of company in that.
