                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon MORDANT, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that 
for a perceptive observation?) as CARNIVAL FREAKS can attest...  Good things come to 
those who fight well, as SWEORDMASTERS can attest, moving up by 0.  Win some, lose 
some.  Speaking of which, TWO-HEADED FERRET was winsome, after beating 
DOWNWITHTHEKING and seeing him lose 11 points.  Duelmaster GRASSCUTTER from 
SWEORDMASTERS is going for the gold, as he challenged LOW ROAD 3's DELISE ORM.  Ooh, 
the excitement!  DELISE ORM found out that MORDANT isn't a democracy.  You've gotta 
be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in MORDANT is using psychics 
to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of HOMICIDAL MANIACS 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of BOOZE, so did that sorry team shy from HOMICIDAL 
MANIACS Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  
Whatever it is, DOMESTIC DERVISH is the most challenged warrior.  MASKED MURDERER II 
found himself challenged by a warrior 21 below:  BOBO THE DOG BOY.  BOBO THE DOG BOY 
of CARNIVAL FREAKS kept his wits as he bested MASKED MURDERER II.  Willing to win at 
any cost is DOO-DOO THE CLOWN, who challenged DANDY BOY, 8 points junior.  Our 
sympathies, DANDY BOY!  I thought DOO-DOO THE CLOWN showed great skill and promise 
when he won victory over DANDY BOY.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  GRASSCUTTER of 
SWEORDMASTERS sends DELISE ORM of LOW ROAD 3 goes to the Weary Warrior's Retirement 
Home.  MORDANT has no place for weaklings!  A moment of silence for DELISE ORM, who 
died an untimely death at the hands of GRASSCUTTER.  In the spirit of revenge, we 
call upon LOW ROAD 3 to act!  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.  More important duties call me.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
