                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  RAVAGING LORDS had cause to celebrate, after CAGED RAT got 16 points by 
beating DRUNKARD'S PATH.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, DANGEROUS CRIMINAL 
was winsome, after beating LONE STAR and seeing him lose 13 points.  Those who hoped 
for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by DIRTY HOWEL, of THE SEWING CIRCLE, who 
despite a 9-14-1 couldn't overcome NIATOLI ISLAND's Number 1.  Word has it one team 
in NIATOLI ISLAND is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in NIATOLI ISLAND is the highlight of my life.  Keep 
those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir
