                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for DEAD BATTERY, who pummelled 
VIRGINAL GIGOLO, to pocket 21 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 3 WIT 
was winsome, after beating TAURUS and seeing him lose 10 points.  What can be a 
greater victory?  SIN EATER has taken hers place as the top, as TELORINTHE's new 
Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are TELORINTHE's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of CHAIN GANG, alone 
and unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, BAD SIGNS scurried away 
from CHAIN GANG.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
NOCTURNAL RITES is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't CHAPEL OF THE 
GHOULS proud!  MOTHER-IN-LAW challenged NOCTURNAL RITES!  Who says BAD SIGNS are just 
a bunch of wimps!  MOTHER-IN-LAW of BAD SIGNS kept hers wits as she was bested by 
NOCTURNAL RITES.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Q:  What's a 
record like 6-6-2 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  This week's winner:  
JUBILEE of WETWORKS!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long 
after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  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
