                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  CARDOW HUNTERS had cause to celebrate, after MAD DOG got 21 points by 
beating CHARLIE.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, GOLIATH was winsome, after 
beating WENDY and seeing her lose 11 points.  BLACK TIGER found out that LAPUR isn't 
a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team 
in LAPUR is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet 
it works.   
     And how sociable are LAPUR's warriors?  Come, let us see.  If challenges were 
horses, BLACK TIGER could open up a fast food joint!   
     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!   
     Do not think spyreporting in LAPUR is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
