                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DULLENS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
ADELITA, who pummelled DRUNKEN GUARDSMAN, to pocket 11 points.  SHOCK TOP certainly 
had a baffled expression on its face, after losing to GRAY BEAR and losing 5 points 
in the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by GOLDENEYE, 
of CARDOW HUNTERS, who despite a 11-9-0 couldn't overcome DULLENS' Number 1.  So 
who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds 
like a PR stunt to me.   
     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, GOLDENEYE 
could open up a fast food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
