                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon DULLENS, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at CARDOW HUNTERS left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by ARCANE ROYALTY.  Good show!  
CARDOW HUNTERS had cause to celebrate, after WOLFDOG got 13 points by beating 
D'ARTANGNON.  BEARFOOT found out that DULLENS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the 
best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in DULLENS 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!  If challenges were horses, BLACKBUCK 
could open up a fast food joint!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do 
not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
