                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  RUN AND HYDE posted a nice gain, to come in 
5th.  Everybody loves a winner...  UNTOUCHABLES had cause to celebrate, after 
DRACARYS got 9 points by beating MORDANT DESERTER.  DECK APE certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to INNOCENT BYSTANDER and losing 18 points in 
the process!  Duelmaster ARETE from UNTOUCHABLES is going for the gold, as she 
challenged WIZARDGUARD's CHOCO BOBA BABY.  Ooh, the excitement!  What can be a 
greater victory?  CHOCO BOBA BABY has taken hers place as the top, as TALCAMA's new 
Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in TALCAMA is taking speech lessons to try to bore 
their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are TALCAMA's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in TALCAMA avoid WIZARDGUARD.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, CENTER FOR OLDS scurried away from 
WIZARDGUARD.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, TRIP could open up a fast 
food joint!  Word has it FABULOUS MR FOX suffered a romantic setback.  Note how he 
challenged BLUE MOON, 54 points his senior.  It's not whether you win or lose, but 
how many points you get (6).  Right, FABULOUS MR FOX?  Them's the breaks, SUPPLE.  
Expecting fair challenges from CENTER FOR OLDS is evidently too much to ask.  DOT DOT 
DOT subdued SUPPLE with a point difference of 21.  So this is what TALCAMA calls a 
duel.  This will make an interesting tale.  My love of complete Spyreports dictates 
that I note the mismatched fight, TRIP and ZEPHER.  Are CENTER FOR OLDS unwilling to 
engage in a fair fight?  I thought TRIP showed great skill and promise when he 
overcame ZEPHER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  TALCAMA, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Original Arthur's 
Last Stand.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
