                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon STORMCROWE, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  AVID FANS posted a nice gain, to come in 3rd.  
Everybody loves a winner...  I doubt many are quaking in their boots, but BOOK OF 
THOMAS comes out of nowhere to get 4-1-0.  What does the future hold?  Watch this 
space...  BOOK OF THOMAS had cause to celebrate, after PART TIMER got 18 points by 
beating THE KING.  YELLIN certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after 
losing to BENDER and losing 13 points in the process!  NOK GORKA found out that 
STORMCROWE isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word 
has it one team in STORMCROWE is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent 
to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are STORMCROWE's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of AVID FANS, alone and 
unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, GOING BERSERK scurried away 
from AVID FANS.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, A REPORTER could open up 
a fast food joint!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in STORMCROWE is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
STORMCROWE, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Shadow's Fountain.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
