                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  MIDNIGHT GREMLINS had cause to celebrate, 
after ALOYSIUS THE BEAR got 24 points by beating CHESTER GRELL.  A certain someone 
saw SASSAFRAS LASS at Lucas Lounge with the shakes, and now she fails to show up to 
defend hers throne.  What a pathetic slob!  In JHANS, nothing is permanent (except 
Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, VENOM.  Word has it one team in JHANS 
is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.  
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
JHANS, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at Lucas Lounge.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
