                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  MIDDLE WAY 15 had cause to celebrate, after IRSON ORSON got 16 points 
by beating THE HONEST MERCHANT.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 3 points to MAULT LIQUOR.  (Discrete enough, LOVE OR 
CONFUSION?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by VETERAN 
MERCENARY, of SOLVEN, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome SOLVEN's Number 1.  So 
who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     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 ARE YOU ? are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of MAULS LOCAL 457, so did that sorry 
team shy from ARE YOU ?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in SOLVEN would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in SOLVEN is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for SOLVEN?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
