                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at THE MIDDLE WAY 4 left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by FUNKY FOLK.  Good show!  FUNKY 
FOLK had cause to celebrate, after SAM SUNG got 17 points by beating THE COOK.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 13 
points to HAPPY PEASANT.  (Discrete enough, THE HALLWAY?) Duelmaster SUE CHURZ from 
FUNKY FOLK is going for the gold, as she challenged THE MIDDLE WAY 4's URBIN YATES.  
Ooh, the excitement!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by URBIN 
YATES, of THE MIDDLE WAY 4, who despite a 23-20-0 couldn't overcome LYRATILAN's 
Number 1.  Word has it one team in LYRATILAN is taking speech lessons to try to bore 
their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, URBIN YATES is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in LYRATILAN 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.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
