                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at ABOMINATION left the arena dejected, after being kicked out 
of the top spot by THE CLUB.  Good show!  THE CLUB had cause to celebrate, after 
BUGSY got 18 points by beating WILD THINGS.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 15 points to BUGSY.  (Discrete enough, WILD 
THINGS?) TREMORS found out being KOLACT's Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, 
receiving 2 challenges!  The arena was more crowded than usual this time, as TROG 
faced KOLACT's Duelmaster.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
TROG, of ABOMINATION, who despite a 13-13-0 couldn't overcome KOLACT's Number 1.  So 
who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of THE MOONDOGS, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of THE MOONDOGS found their efforts at combat frustrated as ABOMINATION 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in KOLACT would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in KOLACT is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  KOLACT, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at Don Corleone's.  'Til 
next time-- Novgorodny Vir

entertained through the months of August and September.

cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.
