                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon KOLACT, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  THE CLUB?  Who?  VIKINGS is the top team these days, 
buddies!  VIKINGS had cause to celebrate, after CIRIC got 21 points by beating 
IAYELLE ORBIN.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, CIRIC was winsome, after 
beating IAYELLE ORBIN and seeing her lose 18 points.  MONZAR ORBISAR found out that 
KOLACT isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who's 
the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a 
PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are KOLACT's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in KOLACT avoid ABOMINATION.  
The warriors of ABOMINATION found their efforts at combat frustrated as VIKINGS 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  
Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, JAGABORG is the most 
challenged warrior.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in KOLACT would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid KOLACT farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir
