                                      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 SHIRLEY KNOTT, who pummelled 
ROBERT JOHNSON, to pocket 28 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, THETAS 
TOMAN was winsome, after beating ALICE AIN'T HERE and seeing her lose 13 points.  JOE 
WILLIAMS successfully staved off a grab for the roses by SON OF JOHN of PSYCHO SQUAD. 
Does TRANSEL have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in 
TRANSEL is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it 
works.   
     And how sociable are TRANSEL's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
KOLDIS THE CRAFTY in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for DA1 of BLACK AND BLUES.  Maybe 
that certain serving girl(?) at The Victory Tavern will be!  SHIRLEY KNOTT of PSYCHO 
SQUAD spared ROBERT JOHNSON (14-19-0) from having to lose any more fights.  What's 
your next plan, BLACK AND BLUES?  He who lives by the sword (or maul)...  Witness 
ROBERT JOHNSON of BLACK AND BLUES, felled by SHIRLEY KNOTT of PSYCHO SQUAD.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in TRANSEL would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  TRANSEL, I leave you now.  
The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Victory Tavern.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir
