                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  THE FAMILY posted a nice gain, to come in 3rd.  Everybody loves a 
winner...  Practice pays for BAIBAR, who pummelled JONAS SWITCHBLADE, to pocket 15 
points.  KENSELJO found out that VEASTIAN isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the 
best to be Duelmaster here!  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 there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     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.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir
