                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for WAR, who pummelled DANGEROUS CRIMINAL, to pocket 16 
points.  STILL LOOKING certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing 
to EXIT and losing 6 points in the process!  In VEASTIAN, nothing is permanent 
(except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, PHANTASM.  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.  Perhaps the 
warriors of MELODY MAYHEM should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided 
team...  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of SPIRIT'S REALM, so did 
that sorry team shy from MELODY MAYHEM Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
EXIT is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't MELODY MAYHEM proud!  Place 
your bets!  SHOULD BE FUN is the long shot of the week:  they challenged TENNESSEE 
LINE, up by 30.  It's not whether you win or lose, but how many points you get (5).  
Right, SHOULD BE FUN?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in VEASTIAN would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
