                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TALCAMA, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at BURN N' PILLAGE left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by CENTER FOR OLDS.  Good show!  BIG 
MEAN FISH after a sorry 2-3-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and taking 
up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  What's a move up by 4 you ask?  
(alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to STAR WARS: 
KOTOR.  WASTELAND had cause to celebrate, after ELITE BEAT AGENT got 19 points by 
beating THE GATEKEEPER.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 11 points to CHARNEL.  (Discrete enough, THE 
PHILANDERER?) HK-47 found out being TALCAMA's Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, 
receiving 6 challenges!  You could cut the tension with a scimitar as UNGOOD of 
CENTER FOR OLDS met the Duelmaster.  What can be a greater victory?  UNGOOD has taken 
its place as the top, as TALCAMA's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in TALCAMA 
is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in IMPURE THOUGHTS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, CENTER FOR OLDS scurried away from IMPURE 
THOUGHTS.  Oh, the shame!  Call 'im brash!  Call 'im brassy!  Call 'im brave!  Call 
'im sassy!  THE LIBERAL will face PEACOCK FLOUNDER, up by 28.  Aaaah, just call 'im 
dead meat.  Not to smear a reputation, but BIG MEAN FISH must be a little surprised, 
as PEACOCK FLOUNDER blew it when facing THE LIBERAL, 28 points below it.  THE VOYEUR 
challenged THE CLOSER!  Who says IMPURE THOUGHTS are just a bunch of wimps!  THE 
VOYEUR of IMPURE THOUGHTS kept his wits as he bested THE CLOSER.  Mismatched by 10 
points, DARTH SION bested SKYWALKER.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought 
SKYWALKER showed great skill and promise when he was subdued by DARTH SION.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  THE LIBERAL of IMPURE THOUGHTS sends PEACOCK FLOUNDER of BIG MEAN FISH goes to 
the Weary Warrior's Retirement Home.  TALCAMA has no place for weaklings!  PEACOCK 
FLOUNDER of BIG MEAN FISH put away THE LIBERAL of IMPURE THOUGHTS.  Let's hope Lady 
Luck continues to smile upon THE LIBERAL!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he 
will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in TALCAMA is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
