                                      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 JEREMIAH BROADBLADE, who 
pummelled KIRVINJ, to pocket 17 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
JEREMIAH BROADBLADE was winsome, after beating KIRVINJ and seeing him lose 15 points. 
KENSELJO found out that VEASTIAN isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  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 if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  VEASTIAN, I leave you now.  The 
Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Dripping Blade.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir

entertained through the months of August and September.
