                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  CARDOW HUNTERS?  Who?  ARCANE ROYALTY is the 
top team these days, buddies!  7TH SANCTUM had cause to celebrate, after TOOTH FOOT 
got 17 points by beating BLIND OWL.  BLIND OWL certainly had a baffled expression on 
his face, after losing to TOOTH FOOT and losing 14 points in the process!  FALLENROCK 
found out that DULLENS 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.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     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.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid DULLENS farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Well!  THIS time, we went four-one, and Starsinger is having a FIT because she's the
only one who lost her fight, which is such a hoot.  Ha!  All the stars she's singing
