                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in TRICORUS, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--DARK HORSEMEN.  WILDCATS had cause to 
celebrate, after TIGER got 13 points by beating MORDANT DESERTER.  DR. ORPHEUS 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to SALMGEDAN and losing 
6 points in the process!  MANNY LEHMAN successfully staved off a grab for the roses 
by KUNG FU MASTER of TRICORUS.  Does TRICORUS have no one talented enough to dethrone 
him?  Word has it one team in TRICORUS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead 
a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in DARK 
HORSEMEN are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman 
of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of WILDCATS, so did that sorry team shy from 
DARK HORSEMEN Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, SKALVORD is the most challenged warrior.  SKALVORD found 
himself challenged by a warrior 24 below:  PUMA.  PUMA of WILDCATS kept its wits as 
it was bested by SKALVORD.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in TRICORUS is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid TRICORUS farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir
