                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TRANSEL, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in TRANSEL, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--THE LADY'S LIST.  
THE LADY'S LIST had cause to celebrate, after SATCHEL got 11 points by beating 
CAPTURED ORC.  A certain someone saw HAWK at The Sultan's Tent with the shakes, and 
now he fails to show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  Now I can't 
insult SKINWALKER, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new 
Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who's the team that's been 
walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in TRANSEL avoid WINGED LEGION.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of DARK PANTHEON, so did that sorry team shy from 
WINGED LEGION Take heed TRANSEL, of the unprincipled action of SKINWALKER.  By 
challenging MIKEL, 26 points below him, SKINWALKER besmirches the noble art of 
dueling.  Warriors of TRANSEL!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base 
challenge of SKINWALKER?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  TRANSEL, I leave you now.  The 
Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Sultan's Tent.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
