                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  IS THAT A CLUE? had cause to celebrate, after VILE HENCHMAN got 27 
points by beating VAISTINIE.  TORN CLOTH certainly had a baffled expression on hers 
face, after losing to KIRVINJ and losing 10 points in the process!  Those who hoped 
for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by KENSELJO, of THE FAMILY, who despite a 
15-11-0 couldn't overcome VEASTIAN's Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging 
into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     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.   
     Do not think spyreporting in VEASTIAN is the highlight of my life.  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
