                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon CLIFFHOME, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at DANCES WITH MEAT are walking tall, as 
they are ranked 3rd on their first try!  Going for the Duelmaster soon?  DANCES WITH 
MEAT had cause to celebrate, after T-BONE TWO-STEP got 16 points by beating 
PERSISTENT BEGGAR.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 11 points to TURKEY LEG TANGO.  (Discrete enough, HECANTONCHIRE?) 
Well, Duelmaster CYPRIAN Bloodfeuded JINDA-BAN's CARTER PILLAR.  Is a 8-0-0 good 
enough?  CYPRIAN successfully staved off a grab for the roses by CARTER PILLAR of 
JINDA-BAN.  Does CLIFFHOME have no one talented enough to dethrone her?  Word has it 
one team in CLIFFHOME is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to 
death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are CLIFFHOME's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Everyone is 
famous for fifteen minutes, and BENT FENDER is it right now.  Most challenged 
warrior.  Isn't JINDA-BAN proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Citizens of 
CLIFFHOME, be sure to settle your debts with ALONZO of BOY O'S.  He's relocating to 
the Dark Arena and has other things on his mind!  The manager at BOY O'S must have 
some new strategy for sending ALONZO, a warrior with 12-3-0, to the Dark Arena.  
Watch this space!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body 
parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in CLIFFHOME would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  CLIFFHOME, I leave you now. 
The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Choking Ogre.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir
