                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for DIRTY HOWEL, who pummelled TOBY, to pocket 12 points. 
Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, DIRTY HOWEL was winsome, after beating TOBY 
and seeing him lose 5 points.  Like a flirtacious debutante, NIATOLI ISLAND's 
Duelmaster MONOLYTH found himself the man of the hour, being "invited to dance" 2 
times!  In NIATOLI ISLAND, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves 
a new Duelmaster, ZOMBIFIED.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last 
week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are NIATOLI ISLAND's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell 
some nasty rumors, the guys in RAVAGING LORDS are not carrying any incurable 
diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, LIVING 
HELL scurried away from RAVAGING LORDS.  Oh, the shame!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in NIATOLI ISLAND would I avoid!   
     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.  NIATOLI ISLAND, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to 
foot my bill at The Don't Drop Inn.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
