                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Good things come to those who fight well, as CARDOW HUNTERS can attest, 
moving up by 0.  Practice pays for SUGAR BULL, who pummelled BRUCE LEE'S BROTHER, to 
pocket 12 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 4 points to TEX IMPERSONATOR.  (Discrete enough, LITTLE LION?) 
LAUGHTER REDKNIFE found out that DULLENS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best 
to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in DULLENS would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in DULLENS is the highlight of my life.  As the 
seasons change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to 
leave this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid DULLENS 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Oh, no!  Down to NINE fights!  We're shrinking again.  And even though three of us
fought standbys, I'm ashamed to admit that we pulled an oh-fer.  Talk about snatching
defeat from the jaws of victory! -- Laughter Redknife
