                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TRICORUS, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  DARK HORSEMEN posted a nice gain, to come in 4th.  
Everybody loves a winner...  SEA DOGS had cause to celebrate, after PRESS GANG GUY 
got 11 points by beating OLYMPIA.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 8 points to PRESS GANG GUY.  (Discrete enough, 
OLYMPIA?) In TRICORUS, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a 
new Duelmaster, HASARCH.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls 
and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of RAISING R'LYEH 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with 
its tail between its legs, AMAZON ELITE scurried away from RAISING R'LYEH.  Oh, the 
shame!  If challenges were horses, PRESS GANG GUY could open up a fast food joint!   
     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!  More important duties call me.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for TRICORUS?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
