                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for ZURISDAY, who pummelled 
SAXAPHONE, to pocket 17 points.  JENNA KUUL certainly had a baffled expression on 
hers face, after losing to CIRCLE K and losing 4 points in the process!  Those who 
hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by MOLDAR NAY, of MIDDLE WAY 6, who 
despite a 17-15-1 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.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in SNOWBOUND avoid THE MYRMIDONS.  The warriors of THE 
MYRMIDONS found their efforts at combat frustrated as LIFE IMPACTS apparently had 
more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, JENNA KUUL is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  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!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not despair!  I 
shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

     16 straight.  My fingers and wrist are tired from writing all these DM Columns.
You'd think I would get a reprieve.  PLUS, why am I not a Lord Protector?  Sheesh!

     Good luck to all.  Can I make it 17?
               4-H DMXVI

Wait a minute!  I killed Ladiro Maels?!  Really?  I did?  Man oh man oh man!  I
didn't want THAT!  Middle Way 6, I am truly sorry.  May Ladiro fight well in That
Great Arena In The Sky, and may you all get a lovely, lovely recruit. -- Math
(counting to himself)

4-H -- And yet again, eh?  Oh, well, I will face the facts life has dealt me and be
glad I survived. -- Moldar Nay

Math -- I *knew* you were bad for me. -- Ghost of Ladiro Maels

Heart of Glass -- Hmm, I suppose if you have one of those, you have to be aggressive
to defend it. -- Shobart Teegue
P.S.  Now, if I could sing, I might manage a note that would shatter your heart!
That's a weird thought.  But I can't carry a tune in a bucket.

Nefara -- A win is good, thanks.  Could I buy you dinner on the strength of it? --
Garuth Holm
P.S.  I'm not really a golem.  The Commission is weird about that.

Zurisday -- Comes right before Varaiday? -- Jenna Kuul
