                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JHANS, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for ETHER, who pummelled 20TH CENTURY 
FOX, to pocket 20 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, ETHER was 
winsome, after beating 20TH CENTURY FOX and seeing him lose 13 points.  In JHANS, 
nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, FANG.  
Word has it one team in JHANS 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?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in JHANS avoid SERPENTS HOLD.  The warriors of SERPENTS HOLD found 
their efforts at combat frustrated as DEVIATION apparently had more important things 
to do than fight.   
     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 if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for JHANS?  On that giddy note 
I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Our congratulations to Fang, graduating in absentia. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

And for the rest, we were involved in every fight today, going (sigh) one-four.  Two
of my wretched teammates lost to standbys!  And since I got the only win--and the
duelmastership, chartered recognition leadership, popularity leadership, and
favoriteship--*I* "get" to write the personal.  Why do *I* have to do everything? --
