                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TRICORUS, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Good things come to those who fight well, as DARK 
HORSEMEN can attest, moving up by 0.  OMINOUS REIGN had cause to celebrate, after 
BREAKER BAR got 22 points by beating EVERYONE BURNS.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking 
of which, BREAKER BAR was winsome, after beating EVERYONE BURNS and seeing him lose 
14 points.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by UP FROM THE 
SEA, of RAISING R'LYEH, who despite a 15-6-0 couldn't overcome TRICORUS' Number 1.  
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?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in TRICORUS avoid SEA DOGS.  As a woman of good breeding scorns 
the "warriors" of RAISING R'LYEH, so did that sorry team shy from SEA DOGS Is it 
charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, 
WO TIGER is the most challenged warrior.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in TRICORUS would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  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
