                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon STORMCROWE, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  BOOK OF THOMAS?  Who?  SHEWISH BUFFET is the 
top team these days, buddies!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you 
didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to SHEWISH BUFFET.  SHEWISH BUFFET had 
cause to celebrate, after MARSH FELLOW got 15 points by beating WORK HORSE.  WORK 
HORSE certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to MARSH FELLOW 
and losing 13 points in the process!  Duelmaster ANGEL CAKE from SHEWISH BUFFET is 
going for the gold, as he Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's DARK CHAMPION.  Ooh, the 
excitement!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by DARK CHAMPION, 
of DARK ARENA, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome STORMCROWE's Number 1.  Word has 
it one team in STORMCROWE is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to 
death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of AVID FANS, alone and unchallenged.  Like a pup 
with its tail between its legs, GOING BERSERK scurried away from AVID FANS.  Oh, the 
shame!  If challenges were horses, FRY GUY could open up a fast food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  DARK CHAMPION in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for ANGEL CAKE of SHEWISH 
BUFFET.  Maybe that certain serving girl(?) at The Shadow's Fountain will be!  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.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
