                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon VEASTIAN, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for SOLDIER 3, who pummelled 
J'KOROU, to pocket 21 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, SOLDIER 3 was 
winsome, after beating J'KOROU and seeing him lose 12 points.  SOLDIER 4 successfully 
staved off a grab for the roses by SJORDHAL of THE FAMILY.  Does VEASTIAN have no one 
talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in VEASTIAN is taking speech 
lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     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 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.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Soldier 4 -- Finally!  Thanks.  I'm glad to be out of that. -- J'Korou
P.S.  And still alive.

Soldier 3 -- Ouch, you nearly fell on me!  I don't mind you falling, but I would have
minded you landing on me. -- Noriltenne

Unlike some people I might name, people who are among my own teammates, in fact, I
*have* studied kung-fu.  You just never know what you'll need to counter. -- Sjordahl

The Fratsfa Slave is some kind of sick joke, isn't he? -- Worth Lissando

I laugh at the Osksi Noble, and glad to do it.  I haven't had a good laugh all week.
-- Selinsia
