                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at ADVENTURE TIME 2 left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by XCOM ALPHA.  Good show!  XCOM 
ALPHA had cause to celebrate, after SOLO got 24 points by beating JON STONE.  What 
can be a greater victory?  JAKE BLACK has taken his place as the top, as ZENSU's new 
Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, RALPH NEPPEL is the most challenged 
warrior.  My love of complete Spyreports dictates that I note the mismatched fight, 
EARL OF LEMONGRAB and RALPH NEPPEL.  Are ADVENTURE TIME 2 unwilling to engage in a 
fair fight?  I thought EARL OF LEMONGRAB showed great skill and promise when it was 
beat by RALPH NEPPEL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Justice was 
served as JAKE BLACK fought SOLDIER 1 in bloodfeud.  Well done, BEYOND THE PALE!  Ask 
not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into 
an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Two-three, but at least our new teammembers (so-called, if they know anything about
teamwork, which I doubt) showed up.  One-one against standbys, which is less than
impressive, even to us.  Still, we're all alive, so next time we might do better. --
