                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TALCAMA, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for CHUM BUCKET, who pummelled THE 
CODDLER, to pocket 19 points.  You could cut the tension with a scimitar as CHOCO 
BOBA BABY of WIZARDGUARD met the Duelmaster.  BLUE MOON successfully staved off a 
grab for the roses by CHOCO BOBA BABY of WIZARDGUARD.  Does TALCAMA have no one 
talented enough to dethrone him?  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are TALCAMA's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of SEA DOGS, alone and 
unchallenged.  The warriors of SEA DOGS found their efforts at combat frustrated as 
WIZARDGUARD apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming 
personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, MERVYN 
is the most challenged warrior.  My love of complete Spyreports dictates that I note 
the mismatched fight, DEATHSTALKER TOO and PLANKTON.  Are WIZARDGUARD unwilling to 
engage in a fair fight?  I thought DEATHSTALKER TOO showed great skill and promise 
when he won victory over PLANKTON.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Never one to advocate 
diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see SEA DOGS retaliate against WIZARDGUARD 
in bloodfeud!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  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
