     Number 14.  No time.  Gotta run.  Can't write much.  Let's see if anyone really
cares?
     Does anyone really want to see a Duelmaster Column from me?

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at PUBLIC ENEMY left the arena dejected, after being kicked 
out of the top spot by LIFE IMPACTS.  Good show!  Practice pays for JENNA KUUL, who 
pummelled SPACE MONKEY, to pocket 16 points.  SPACE MONKEY certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to JENNA KUUL and losing 14 points in the 
process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by MOLDAR NAY, of 
MIDDLE WAY 6, who despite a 17-13-1 couldn't overcome SNOWBOUND's Number 1.  Word has 
it one team in SNOWBOUND is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to 
death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are SNOWBOUND's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of PUBLIC ENEMY, alone 
and unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, LIFE IMPACTS scurried 
away from PUBLIC ENEMY.  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, MOLDAR NAY is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Charity is unknown in SNOWBOUND, and rightly so.  SCISSOR ME TIMBER exacted 
their revenge against LIFE IMPACTS.  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will 
pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for SNOWBOUND?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Man Bear Pig and Scissor Me Timber -- I am so sorry.  I did not mean to kill.  I
absolutely did not.  May Man Bear Pig fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky. --
Saxophone (head bowed)

Shiver Me Timbers -- It is not the Life Impacts way to kill.  We thrive on life.  All
of us here in the stable send our regrets and sorrow.  It is sad that The Commission
matched up one with far more experience than the other.  Daggone MUGs!   May your
newest recruit be one of quality and valor. -- The Life Impacts Publicist

I be sad 'n sorri bout that, Scissers.  Bad sad. -- Smitty

Public Enemy -- Congrats on your great point gain last turn.  I will be advising
Smitty to *avoid*.  I will. -- Life Impacts Publicist

Ladiro -- I'm with you!  Let's get me graduated FAST! -- 4-H

Thor -- A match of interesting styles.  It was merely my lucky day. -- Quality

Verra!  Verra, Verra, Verra.  That hurt!  I was overcome with your beauty, then the
pain set in.  Yikes! -- Circle K (bandaged, limping, and moving rather slowly)

Convicted Assassin -- Har, har!  If you can't count, you can't beat me! -- Math
(Still needing 9 political points badly with 4-H hogging them all!)

Gotta graters me 4-H wif 'er 14 DM Titles.  Gotta tell 'er, she be gud.  Yup. --
Smitty

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- The Life Impacts Publicist

Saxophone -- Actually, I like the wooden xylophone best, I think. -- Garuth Holm
P.S.  If you haven't heard one, you've missed a wonderfully soothing experience.

4-H -- You could GRADUATE, you know.  Any time. -- Ladiro Maels

Nefara -- I can't stand public enemies.  Down with 'em!  Go private, young woman. --
Garuth Holm

Swamp Donkey -- Ick.  Mud. -- Jenna Kuul

4-H -- It hardly seems worth writing a new personal each time. -- Ladiro Maels

Beleg Bloodaxe -- If I've warned you once, I've probably warned you at least twice,
WASH that thing.  Otherwise it will corode. -- Moldar Nay

Smaugh -- Phfaugh. -- Shobart Teegue
