                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JHELUM, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in JHELUM, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--SAVAGE HORDE.  
Practice pays for EARCUTTER, who pummelled SUN TREE, to pocket 15 points.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 17 points to 
DANGEROUS CRIMINAL.  (Discrete enough, JAEGER?) Duelmaster VAR-KHAN from SAVAGE HORDE 
is going for the gold, as he Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's WURM KIN.  Ooh, the 
excitement!  WURM KIN found out that JHELUM isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the 
best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in JHELUM is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  If challenges were horses, FENRIS KHAN 
could open up a fast food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Those who owe VAR-KHAN of SAVAGE HORDE money and had written him off, take 
note:  he'S BACK FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Ask not for whom the sword 
slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in JHELUM is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
JHELUM?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Our congratulations to Var-Khan. -- Jorja and the Dogs of War

Skullhammer -- And I hammered it, did I not? -- Jaeger

Earcutter -- Not my ear, you don't!  Although I sympathize with your need for a win.
-- Sun Tree

Ah, heck, the Khalhums Dwarf.  Or wherever he's really from.  Bummer.  But at least
the steward noticed I'm slim now! -- Warburton, champion weight-loser

Damn, that man is DANGEROUS! -- Fenris Khan

Is this embarrassing, or what?  We defeat two managed warriors, then go 1-2 against
the standbys.  At least I got the win. -- Bunker Bill
