                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  JINDA-BAN?  Who?  BASH BROS CHILDREN is the top team these days, 
buddies!  Practice pays for BEDTIME, who pummelled MENDARLIN VORO, to pocket 17 
points.  MENDARLIN VORO certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing 
to BEDTIME and losing 8 points in the process!  Duelmaster TALKS NONSTOP from BASH 
BROS CHILDREN is going for the gold, as he challenged JINDA-BAN's NILISMARIN SALM.  
Ooh, the excitement!  TALKS NONSTOP successfully staved off a grab for the roses by 
NILISMARIN SALM of JINDA-BAN.  Does CLIFFHOME have no one talented enough to dethrone 
him?  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk? 
Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are CLIFFHOME's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some 
nasty rumors, the guys in PILLAR OF KINGS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  
No need to avoid 'em.  The warriors of PILLAR OF KINGS found their efforts at combat 
frustrated as BASH BROS CHILDREN apparently had more important things to do than 
fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  
Whatever it is, NILISMARIN SALM is the most challenged warrior.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in CLIFFHOME is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing 
Spyreports for CLIFFHOME?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
