                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  FRIENDLY FIRE?  Who?  ENGINES 'O' DEATH is the top team these days, 
buddies!  Those betting on FRIENDLY FIRE lost their shirt, as FRIENDLY FIRE lost 
their fighting abilities:  0-0-0.  What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe 
you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to HELL'S KITCHEN.  Practice pays 
for PAULA, who pummelled GEENA, to pocket 19 points.  FOUL NAVIGATOR certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to FRIED WORMS and losing 5 points in 
the process!  IRON MAN found out that JHANS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the 
best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in JHANS 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!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of SEA DOGS, alone and unchallenged.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, HELL'S KITCHEN scurried away from SEA DOGS.  Oh, 
the shame!  If challenges were horses, PATCH could open up a fast food joint!   
     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 JHANS 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.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid JHANS 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

15 managers have announced for the Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse!!!!!!  There is still 
time to join and make a name for yourself in one of Alastari's fiercest contests!  I
