                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon DAL SHANG, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in DAL SHANG, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--TOLBIN'S GEMS.  
MEDAL OF HONOR C11 had cause to celebrate, after SERGEANT 2 got 22 points by beating 
GRAHAM CAPILL.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, 
after losing 12 points to SERGEANT 3.  (Discrete enough, JUNG MYUNG SEOK?) A certain 
someone saw CAUSEY at The Blazing Unicorn with the shakes, and now he fails to show 
up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  In DAL SHANG, nothing is permanent 
(except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, STAR RUBY.  Word has it one 
team in DAL SHANG is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  
I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in THE CAUSEY WAY are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, BASH BROS EVANGELIST scurried away from 
THE CAUSEY WAY.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, NORBEN THE LESSER could 
open up a fast food joint!  As a confidence booster, DRIVING A ROLLS challenged 
GORBAN TEN SKORA, down 27 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare 
time, DRIVING A ROLLS?  Yes, Virginia, sometimes the little guy wins, as GORBAN TEN 
SKORA proved, beating 27 point higher DRIVING A ROLLS.  Willing to win at any cost is 
GUNSMOKE, who challenged SERGEANT 1, 14 points junior.  Our sympathies, SERGEANT 1!  
I thought GUNSMOKE showed great skill and promise when he defeated SERGEANT 1.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid DAL SHANG farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Sergeant 7 -- You may have the same rank, but you're clearly higher in the order of
things than Sergeant 8. -- Driving a Rolls

An Yee -- I use deodorant -- Warren Jeffs

Lexa Bloodlust -- Will you get on the stand for me?  They're threatening all sorts of
nasty punishments if I am found guilty. -- William Kamm

Two-three, and the newer guys won.  That's embarrassing, but not as embarrassing as
an oh-fer would have been.  So, we'll take it.  After all, why not?  And I don't even
want to think about who will and who won't return to this arena from the tourney.
Good luck, whoever went. -- Gorban ten Skora
