                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I hate those Assassin dudes.  Andorians, every one.  I can tell.

                                   Chester Grell

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at TEMPLE OF STEEL left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by MIDNIGHT GREMLINS.  Good show!  
He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe 
SERPENTS HOLD.  Last week they got 0-2-0 to drop by 4!  Practice pays for SANFORD'S 
OTHER SON, who pummelled SIDEWINDER, to pocket 23 points.  A certain someone should 
cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 17 points to SASSAFRAS LASS. 
(Discrete enough, VENOM?) Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to ENEMY SABOTEUR, BUT 
CHESTER GRELL is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  
Word has it one team in JHANS is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent 
to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of TEMPLE OF STEEL, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of TEMPLE OF STEEL found their efforts at combat frustrated as MIDNIGHT 
GREMLINS apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
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.  More important duties call me.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for JHANS?  On that giddy note 
I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
