                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in AMEN-TEI, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--WAYFARERS.  BAD 
GIRLS had cause to celebrate, after MADONNA got 21 points by beating TOMAS KATT.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 7 
points to MADONNA.  (Discrete enough, TOMAS KATT?) A certain someone saw PFC 2 at The 
Swinging Aardvark with the shakes, and now he fails to show up to defend his throne.  
What a pathetic slob!  What can be a greater victory?  BATHSHEBA has taken hers place 
as the top, as AMEN-TEI's new Duelmaster.  So who's the team that's been walking into 
taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are AMEN-TEI's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in AMEN-TEI avoid SUPERIOR 
FORCES.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of BAD GIRLS, so did that 
sorry team shy from SUPERIOR FORCES  
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     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 AMEN-TEI farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

And in a perfect turn-around, this time we went four-one.  I defeated another Bad
Girl who was NOT determined to give me a bath, therefore I was gentle with her.
Never say I can't be kind, I do know how.  Just... it usually isn't worth it. --
