                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at PSYCHO SQUAD left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by BLACK AND BLUES.  Good show!  
PSYCHO SQUAD had cause to celebrate, after TOM TIGER got 8 points by beating 
BUMBLE-FINGERS.  ROBERT JOHNSON certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after 
losing to XENORIA and losing 11 points in the process!  JOE WILLIAMS found out that 
TRANSEL isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  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!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     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.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid TRANSEL farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Big Bill Broonzy -- Aw, cheese, didja hafta do that?  The guys at the guildhouse were
gettin', ya know, they were pickin' on me.  An' now ya showed 'em they COULD.  I hate
that. -- Doophus

A standby?  Thetas Toman is a STANDBY? ... Shirley Knott!

Nothing wrong with a standby if he knows when to lie down and grovel at my feet. --
Son of John

Imagine what Alice could've done to that Beggar if she'd been HERE! -- Not-a-Nut
Jones

This's okay.  Could've been better if they'd let me tear him apart, but it'll do for
now. -- Tom Tiger
