                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at AIMER'S INC left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by PUNNY AMINALS.  Good show!  
GOLDEN GLADIATORS had cause to celebrate, after GOLD MINER got 19 points by beating 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 5 points to BLACK INDEKKER.  (Discrete enough, DELACROIX?) 
TEETER-SLAUGHTER found out being WILLAF's Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, 
receiving 2 challenges!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
GOLDEN GIRL, of GOLDEN GLADIATORS, who despite a 13-7-1 couldn't overcome WILLAF's 
Number 1.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering 
milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of BLOOD ON THE TRACKS, alone and 
unchallenged.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS, so did that sorry team shy from BLOOD ON THE TRACKS  
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in WILLAF would I avoid!   
     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.  Do not despair!  I 
shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
