                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  JINDA-BAN had cause to celebrate, after MENDARLIN VORO got 16 points by 
beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 9 points to KUNG-FU MASTER.  (Discrete enough, NILISMARIN 
SALM?) A certain someone saw ARGONATH at The Choking Ogre with the shakes, and now he 
fails to show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  Now I can't insult 
NORVANDARRO KREN, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!! 
(Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who's the team that's been walking into taverns 
last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
CLIFFHOME would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in CLIFFHOME is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
CLIFFHOME, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Choking 
Ogre.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Argonath -- Oh, good!  Someone else taking an interest.  And, someone else to deal
with the issue of "to write or not to write a column." -- Norvandarro Kren

Instant Club Hit -- I don't see anything "unbelievable" in that, dammit! --
Nilismarin Salm
P.S.  Except how much I taught you.  You should've known that stuff already!

Ha!  I knew we shouldn't have taken an Alastarian onto this team.  They're too
fragile. -- the rest of Jinda-Ban, looking at the wreck of Mustang Tom

I'm always suspicious of people who try to loan me money. -- Korgendal Fars

Spit Up -- Why?  Most people spit down.  Often onto somebody's shoe. -- Kovorlin
