                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon CLIFFHOME, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in CLIFFHOME, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--JINDA-BAN.  FIRE 
DECK had cause to celebrate, after BLAZIKEN got 17 points by beating BENT FENDER.  
TORKOAL certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to DA9965439564 
and losing 8 points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by DASHER, of JINDA-BAN, who despite a 11-10-0 couldn't overcome 
CLIFFHOME's Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of BOY O'S should take 
up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, FIRE DECK scurried away from BOY O'S.  Oh, the shame!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
