                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of CLIFFHOME.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  WEIRD STUDENTS had 
cause to celebrate, after POISED POISON got 21 points by beating YUMMY STARDUST.  
YUMMY STARDUST certainly had a baffled expression on its face, after losing to POISED 
POISON and losing 18 points in the process!  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to 
KUNG-FU MASTER, BUT FOREVER PORCH is still the Duelmaster because it has the most 
recognition points!  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     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!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

             ATTENTION:  ALL MANAGERS WHO ARE ATTENDING THE FACE-TO-FACE

If you plan to attend the Winter Face-to-Face in Phoenix, please let Customer Service 
know.  We will hold your turns for the few days preceding the tourney, starting with 
anything that would mail out on the previous Saturday.  (This means that games due on 
Thursday the 9th (which would mail on Friday) would probably mail to you, but games 
due on the 10th and thereafter will be held and delivered to you at the tournament.  
This way, you won't have to worry about not receiving a critical turn before you 
depart for Newark, and you also don't have to worry about whether you can get a 
reprint before the first turn of the tournament is due.  

See you there!
