                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  ALL-UGLY TEAM?  Who?  DARK HORSEMEN is the top team these days, 
buddies!  Practice pays for ZAO, who pummelled TOFURKEY, to pocket 14 points.  SENSEI 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to ZALGEI and losing 9 
points in the process!  A certain someone saw WILLIE MCGEE at The Blue Dolphin Inn 
with the shakes, and now he fails to show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic 
slob!  Now I can't insult DELANGE, as she has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great 
new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in 
TRICORUS 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?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in TRICORUS is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  TRICORUS, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
The Blue Dolphin Inn.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
