                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon VEASTIAN, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  THE FAMILY had cause to celebrate, after GUIDO 
JENJILI got 13 points by beating MORDANT DESERTER.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, VILE HENCHMAN was winsome, after beating JEREMIAH BROADBLADE and seeing him 
lose 3 points.  BAIBAR 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.   
     And how sociable are VEASTIAN's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in VEASTIAN would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in VEASTIAN is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  VEASTIAN, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
The Warty Toad.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
