                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of SNOWBOUND.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
NEWLIN OHM, who pummelled BONESCRAPER, to pocket 18 points.  A certain someone should 
cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 11 points to NEWLIN OHM.  
(Discrete enough, BONESCRAPER?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by JENNA KUUL, of MIDDLE WAY 6, who despite a 13-30-0 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.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of OPEN SESAME, alone and unchallenged.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, MESOPOTAMIA scurried away from OPEN SESAME.  Oh, 
the shame!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Forgive and forget is not my motto.  Take heed, LIFE IMPACTS, as BOOKS' death 
remains unavenged.  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be 
wasting!   
     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.  SNOWBOUND, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Victory Tavern.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, the census form has been eliminated, effective immediately.  Managers may 
register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by simply writing them on a 
separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  Each warrior may have 
up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, 
Victory and may be up to 80 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the
