                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at SAND DANCERS left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by HOWLIN CASE.  Good show!  HOWLIN 
CASE posted a nice gain, to come in 1st.  Everybody loves a winner...  SAND DANCERS 
had cause to celebrate, after THE WEEPER got 20 points by beating MUSGRAVE.  Win 
some, lose some.  Speaking of which, TRAIN RAIL was winsome, after beating DALADMAR 
and seeing him lose 7 points.  HAMFIST found out that LIN TIRIAN isn't a democracy.  
You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in LIN TIRIAN 
is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are LIN TIRIAN's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     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!   
     Do not think spyreporting in LIN TIRIAN 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

Venom Drip -- I'm not crying, you make my eyes water. -- The Weeper

Musgrave -- That was discourteous. -- Masked Marauder

Daladmar -- I laugh. -- Arnell Nasti, doing so

*I* defeated a Convicted Assassin, and Anonymous LOST to the same guy.  Ha! -- Hamfist
P.S.  But the assassin was a wimp and didn't kill him.  Disappointing.

Our congratulations to Venom Drip. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers
