                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for JOAN CRAWFORD, who pummelled BLOCK HEAD, to pocket 4 
points.  What can be a greater victory?  CARRIE PR has taken hers place as the top, 
as DULLENS' new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in DULLENS is taking speech lessons 
to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Word has it 
MOMMY DEAREST is planning on terminating more ADEPT'S OF XOAN members, if they have 
so little to fear from revenge...  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for 
thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in DULLENS is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid DULLENS farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

success in those endeavors.
