                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of SOLVEN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  MIDDLE WAY 15?  Who?  
SERPENTS HOLD is the top team these days, buddies!  Practice pays for GILLY 
MANDERSON, who pummelled PLUCKED SCRIBE, to pocket 25 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, ROMO was winsome, after beating ERRIS LEONA and seeing her lose 19 
points.  Now I can't insult BLOODY KINK, as it has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh 
great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in 
SOLVEN 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?   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for SOLVEN?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
