                                      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 STEEL PATH 2 left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by CHAOTICDISORDER.  Good show!  THE 
SEWING CIRCLE had cause to celebrate, after IRINKESTA got 14 points by beating THE 
USEROUS MERCHANT.  A certain someone saw LADY KALDRA at The Don't Drop Inn with the 
shakes, and now she fails to show up to defend hers throne.  What a pathetic slob!  
In NIATOLI ISLAND, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new 
Duelmaster, WRETCHEDMISERY.  Word has it one team in NIATOLI ISLAND is taking speech 
lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of LUROCIANS II 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of CHAOTICDISORDER, so did that sorry team shy from 
LUROCIANS II If challenges were horses, TATHARLI could open up a fast food joint!  My 
love of complete Spyreports dictates that I note the mismatched fight, WRETCHEDMISERY 
and TATHARLI.  Are CHAOTICDISORDER unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I thought 
WRETCHEDMISERY showed great skill and promise when she subdued TATHARLI.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in NIATOLI ISLAND 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
