                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  STEEL PATH 2?  Who?  SEA DOGS is the top team 
these days, buddies!  Good things come to those who fight well, as SEA DOGS can 
attest, moving up by 1.  HEROES had cause to celebrate, after HELEN KELLER got 20 
points by beating SHARK BAIT.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, MOTHER TERESA 
was winsome, after beating GRANDMA'S FAN and seeing her lose 7 points.  Duelmaster 
GANGPLANK RIDER from SEA DOGS is going for the gold, as he Dark Arena Challenged DARK 
ARENA's SHEWISH GIANT.  Ooh, the excitement!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster 
were disappointed by SHEWISH GIANT, of DARK ARENA, who despite a 0-0-0 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!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  SHEWISH GIANT in the 
Dark Arena wasn't enough for GANGPLANK RIDER of SEA DOGS.  Maybe that certain serving 
girl(?) at The Don't Drop Inn will be!  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.  Keep 
those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  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
