                                      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 EVE AND EMMA, who pummelled 
RIDLEY SCOTT, to pocket 21 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, ORSON 
WELLS was winsome, after beating HAPPY HARRIET and seeing her lose 7 points.  What 
can be a greater victory?  EVE AND EMMA has taken hers place as the top, as TRANSEL's 
new Duelmaster.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  You've heard about RIDLEY SCOTT of THE DIRECTORS.  Death plays no favorites, 
and neither do I.  What was a 5-5-1 doing on the fields in the first place?  Oh hard! 
that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 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
