                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in LYRATILAN, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--SAY MY NAME.  ERRATA had cause to 
celebrate, after WILCE got 21 points by beating ANTONY.  A certain someone should cut 
down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 15 points to BA'ALZAMON.  
(Discrete enough, MARV ELLIS?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed 
by NARCISSISTIC, of MASTERS OF SIN, who despite a 9-9-1 couldn't overcome LYRATILAN's 
Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging 
dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in LYRATILAN avoid SAY MY NAME.  The warriors of SAY MY 
NAME found their efforts at combat frustrated as BASH BROS CARS apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
CANDYMAN is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't SAY MY NAME proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for LYRATILAN?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
