                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in RODEKI, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--DELVERS.  Practice 
pays for BOB THE IMPALER, who pummelled NIKIAS, to pocket 15 points.  Win some, lose 
some.  Speaking of which, VENOMOUS CONCUBINE was winsome, after beating FRANKENBUTT 
and seeing him lose 10 points.  THIRD BASE SPOCK successfully staved off a grab for 
the roses by ADASHIR of HIGHER PURPOSE.  Does RODEKI 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.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of RESCUE RANGERS should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of RESCUE 
RANGERS found their efforts at combat frustrated as CLOWNING AROUND apparently had 
more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, RED SKELTON 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.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  RODEKI, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Dripping Blade.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
