                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  DARK HORSEMEN had cause to celebrate, after 
BEFORE SUNRISE got 14 points by beating SGT. HATRED.  DR. ORPHEUS certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to SKALVORD and losing 10 points in the 
process!  HANK successfully staved off a grab for the roses by WINDSONG of DARK 
HORSEMEN.  Does TRICORUS have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who's the 
team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR 
stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  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.  TRICORUS, I leave you 
now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Blue Dolphin Inn.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir
