                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for VITAE, who pummelled 
SNOWFOOT, to pocket 23 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 19 points to VITAE.  (Discrete enough, SNOWFOOT?) Those 
who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by SILVAMERE, of BLOODSWORN, who 
despite a 14-10-0 couldn't overcome MALCORN's Number 1.  Word has it one team in 
MALCORN is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it 
works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of GREENWARDENS, alone and unchallenged.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, THE GRAIL KNIGHTS scurried away from 
GREENWARDENS.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
WINTERGREEN is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't GREENWARDENS proud!  As 
a confidence booster, AVAXION challenged BLUE RAM, down 21 points.  Do you also slay 
vicious rodents in your spare time, AVAXION?  AVAXION will have to start challenging 
legless old maids next, as he was overcame by BLUE RAM.  Good show, BLUE RAM!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  MALCORN, I leave you 
now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at Drake's Barbecue.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

Three-two, with only one win being over a standby.  Very strange, but encouraging.
Maybe we're going to have a run of luck... or maybe just a hop and skip of luck.  But
we'll take it! -- Badger
