                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  THE SEWING CIRCLE?  Who?  DIVINE HERITAGE is 
the top team these days, buddies!  Practice pays for AGONY, who pummelled CRAY DAIZY, 
to pocket 12 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 9 points to AGONY.  (Discrete enough, CRAY DAIZY?) Now I can't 
insult BITCHIN' BEAST, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new 
Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in NIATOLI 
ISLAND is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Charity is unknown in 
NIATOLI ISLAND, and rightly so.  THE SEWING CIRCLE exacted their revenge against 
DIVINE HERITAGE.  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after 
you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid NIATOLI ISLAND farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
