                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in MALCORN, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--DARK CREATION.  
Practice pays for CYBERMANCER, who pummelled STONEBOW, to pocket 13 points.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 11 
points to CYBERMANCER.  (Discrete enough, STONEBOW?) Those who hoped for a new 
Duelmaster were disappointed by PIE EYED PIPER, of STARBASE 5, who despite a 22-28-0 
couldn't overcome MALCORN's Number 1.  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!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for MALCORN?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Apok -- Yes, well, Agate said it all. -- Bristlecone

Troglodyte -- Back to the caves, eh? -- Rockwood

Cybermancer -- Jorja says that win was "highly symbolic and a good omen."  Don't ask
me what it means!  She's been going around muttering something about a virus. --
Silverbird

Huh, those Commission scribes!  Strictly speaking, I shouldn't be a Shew, you know.
"Nothing under six feet."  But they don't listen, and I do have some Shewish blood,
so I'm going to let it ride.  Better than having the Evil Inputter decide I'm a
