                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Good things come to those who fight well, as 
MIKES HEROES can attest, moving up by 1.  Practice pays for SVAMPBOB, who pummelled 
BENEZIA, to pocket 18 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 16 points to SVAMPBOB.  (Discrete enough, BENEZIA?) 
KHALHUMS DWARF found out that STORMCROWE 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...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in STORMCROWE avoid RESCUE RANGERS.  As a woman of 
good breeding scorns the "warriors" of DARQUE FORCES, so did that sorry team shy from 
RESCUE RANGERS Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, KERRIGAN is the most challenged warrior.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for STORMCROWE?  On 
that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
