                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in JHANS, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--SERPENTS HOLD.  SERPENTS HOLD had cause 
to celebrate, after FANG got 27 points by beating MORDANT DESERTER.  Win some, lose 
some.  Speaking of which, MEGATRON was winsome, after beating ORVAL PAYNE and seeing 
him lose 10 points.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
CHESTER GRELL, of MIDDLE WAY 17, who despite a 18-22-0 couldn't overcome JHANS' 
Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging 
dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in JHANS is the highlight of my life.  My fingers tire 
and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for JHANS?  On 
that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Ah, Sidewinder, no need to be brutal about it.  I'm basically a peaceful guy, and a
mere grimace or two would have led me to surrender. -- Chester Grell, having a lazy
day, or wanting one, anyway

Ether -- I was ready for you!  When you said, "Take a deep breath," I slammed you.
Didn't think it would work, to tell the truth, but I figured it was worth a try.  And
it was! -- Hildreth Lamont

I gotta say, that Fratsfa Slave is patient.  Or something. -- Jonz Klee
P.S.  But not Fratsfan.

I dunno if the Osksi Noble would've been patient, but it didn't matter, because *I*
was not.  So there. -- Goran Koblinz

Ambitious Guards, bah. -- Orval Payne
