                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of MALCORN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain 
in MALCORN, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top 
team--THE GRAIL KNIGHTS.  GREENWARDENS had cause to celebrate, after WINTERGREEN got 
14 points by beating EDGE.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, CONVICTED 
ASSASSIN was winsome, after beating SLEEPY HOUSE and seeing him lose 43 points.  Now 
I can't insult BADGER, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new 
Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in MALCORN is 
using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are MALCORN's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the 
warriors of TERMINUS should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided 
team...  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, THE GRAIL KNIGHTS scurried away 
from TERMINUS.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, WREN 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.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for MALCORN?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
