                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at REDNECKS left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of 
the top spot by GOING BERSERK.  Good show!  GOING BERSERK had cause to celebrate, 
after SNAEGH got 14 points by beating AN ARENA DOCTOR.  A certain someone should cut 
down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 11 points to SNAEGH.  (Discrete 
enough, AN ARENA DOCTOR?) NOK GORKA successfully staved off a grab for the roses by 
CONVICTED ASSASSIN of STORMCROWE.  Does STORMCROWE have no one talented enough to 
dethrone him?  Word has it one team in STORMCROWE 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!  Perhaps the warriors of REDNECKS 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of GOING BERSERK, so did that sorry team shy from 
REDNECKS  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Citizens of 
STORMCROWE, be sure to settle your debts with NACHO MAN of SHEWISH BUFFET.  He's 
relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on his mind!  The manager at 
SHEWISH BUFFET must have some new strategy for sending NACHO MAN, a warrior with 
10-4-0, to the Dark Arena.  Watch this space!  Admittedly Death waits for no one, but 
me thinks FRY GUY of SHEWISH BUFFET (3-1-0) is being sent off a little prematurely.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in STORMCROWE is the highlight of my life.  As the 
seasons change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to 
leave this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
