                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon CLIFFHOME, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  U.A.K. had cause to celebrate, after FRANZ got 19 
points by beating KORGENDAL FARS.  KORGENDAL FARS certainly had a baffled expression 
on his face, after losing to FRANZ and losing 13 points in the process!  Duelmaster 
ZAG from U.A.K. is going for the gold, as she Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's HIGH 
ELF.  Ooh, the excitement!  The crowds were amazed this turn, as HIGH ELF killed the 
Duelmaster, ZAG, leaving U.A.K. in mourning.  Even 70 points weren't good enough to 
save ZAG from FRANZ.  CLIFFHOME welcomes FRANZ as the new Duelmaster!  So who was the 
warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got 
a basic problem...   
     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!   
     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

Otis -- Nice to meet you! -- Stillgard

Olga -- If it helps, I did not change mnything. -- Enoch

Zag -- You earned the right to boast, and now you're graduating, too!  We
congratulate you. -- Jorja and Jinda-Ban

Franz -- Thank you.  This works for me.  Getting out alive is a pleasant surprise. --
Norvandarro Kren

Franz -- Is this a clue that I, too, will graduate?  Once I get a fourteenth win, of

course.  I can hope! -- Nilismarin Salm
P.S.  But I probably don't have the political points.  I never was good at politics.
P.P.S.  Although I *teach* well.

Hans -- I suppose I should say "good fight," but I'm too embarrassed. -- Kovorlin
Sirro

Zag -- And you'll be headed for the Isle now, I take it?  If you decide not to go,
consider joining me in a trip back to Karia.  I feel this urge to take on the king, I
hope with better luck than last time! -- Norvandarro Kren, once an exile, now a
returning revolutionary (maybe)

Ah, finally, some wins for us!  And the first one is MINE. -- Korgendal Fars, not
worried that it was a "mere" standby win

Ash -- Good try, and I can see that next time is likely to be harder for me. --
