                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  I doubt many are quaking in their boots, but LIKE IT! comes out of 
nowhere to get 3-1-0.  What does the future hold?  Watch this space...  Practice pays 
for TAB, who pummelled PRIVATE 2, to pocket 19 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, ELMORE JAMES was winsome, after beating SON OF JOHN and seeing him 
lose 14 points.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by DOVAHKIIN, 
of SKYRIM, who despite a 6-4-1 couldn't overcome TRANSEL's Number 1.  Word has it one 
team in TRANSEL is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
TRANSEL would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in TRANSEL is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  TRANSEL, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to 
foot my bill at The Victory Tavern.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Our congratulations to Joe Williams.  Time to get out of here, boy! -- Not-a-Nut
Jones, for most of the Psycho Squad

Joe Williams -- Yeah, time for you to GO, dammit. -- Son of John
P.S.  Unless you want to meet me in an alley somewhere.  Without the armor.

Big Bill Broonzy -- That wasn't luck, that was my basic superiority. -- Tom Tiger
P.S.  Mostly I hide it so you little people won't be squashed by the realization of
your own inferiority.

Elmore James -- Shadow-boxing, eh?  Couldn't be anything else, because Alice Ain't
HERE. -- Not-a-Nut Jones

Blind Blake -- You should see what I can do with blind MICE. -- Doophus

Private 3 -- Just wait, little boy.  I am LULLING YOU INTO COMPLACENCE.  And THEN!
Ah, you don't want to KNOW what happens THEN. -- Dark Fluffy Boy
