                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in DAL SHANG, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--SAND DANCERS.  Good things come to 
those who fight well, as WITCHERS can attest, moving up by 1.  WITCHERS had cause to 
celebrate, after MORENN got 20 points by beating ONE-EYED YOFAN.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 15 points to VESEMIR. 
(Discrete enough, KO THE AVERAGE?) You could cut the tension with a scimitar as 
APACHE FOG of SUPERNATURAL met the Duelmaster.  What can be a greater victory?  
APACHE FOG has taken his place as the top, as DAL SHANG's new Duelmaster.  So who was 
the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's 
got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in POSSE are 
not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of LAUGH TRACK LORDS, so did that sorry team shy from 
POSSE Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and KARANZA THE WILD is it right now.  
Most challenged warrior.  Isn't SAND DANCERS proud!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in DAL SHANG 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

Lots of standbys out there, but WE only saw one, and Ko LOST to him.  It's a
judgment.  Two-three over all.  Not impressive. -- An Yee
P.S.  But on a more positive note, Norben the Lesser was a little the More this time
and won his fight.  I grant you the massive difference in visible experience, but at
least he's making an effort.
