                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in TRANSEL, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--BLACK AND BLUES.  Practice pays for 
ROBERT JOHNSON, who pummelled WEGERIN GREATBLADE, to pocket 16 points.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 8 points to 
SONNY BOY II.  (Discrete enough, DOOPHUS?) You could cut the tension with a scimitar 
as INK AND STEEL of INK & STEEL FOREVER met the Duelmaster.  JOE WILLIAMS 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by INK AND STEEL of INK & STEEL FOREVER. 
Does TRANSEL have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in 
TRANSEL is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
PSYCHO SQUAD are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, T IS FOR ... scurried away from PSYCHO SQUAD.  
Oh, the shame!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
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.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an 
overtaxed simile, I now bid TRANSEL farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Liam -- Nah, Ketchum serves a purpose.  Better him to do the spy report than me.
I'll look for you coming back; you will be missed. -- Jorja

Robert Johnson -- Well, IF you're any relation to Howard, you can tell him I'm
annoyed. -- Lizzie Broadaxe
P.S.  And if you aren't any relation to him, then I'm going to be annoyed with YOU.

Big Bill Broonzy -- I find it just WRONG that you're smaller than I am.  I mean, I
don't mind being bigger, but I should WIN because I'm bigger. -- Son of John

Bloodshot -- Damn. -- Shirley Knott

Jumbo -- Well, you were supposed to get a personal, everyone who fights us gets a
personal most days, but... Alice Ain't Here.  So, no personal. -- Not-a-Nut Jones

Cool, another win! -- Doophus
