                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for HARGERD, who pummelled TIGER, to pocket 16 points.  
MOONDARK certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to AMBITIOUS 
GUARD and losing 9 points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by VETERAN MERCENARY, of TRICORUS, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome 
TRICORUS' Number 1.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of DARK HORSEMEN, alone and unchallenged.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, WILDCATS scurried away from DARK HORSEMEN.  Oh, 
the shame!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid TRICORUS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Quizboy -- That was well done.  Always take the title on a win. -- Windsong
P.S.  But, of course, never REFUSE the title regardless of how it comes at you.

Dr. Orpheus -- Ah, heck, I could never carry a tune, even with a bucket. -- Skalvord
P.S.  And some days, I can't even carry a SKILL in a bucket.  Cheese.

Major Tom -- Can you say "mismatch"?  Makes you wonder what the stewards are doing,
doesn't it? -- Salmgedan

Cult Members are worthless on the sands. -- Moondark
P.S.  Okay, sorta worthless, two skills and a rating are nothing to sneeze at.  If I
sneeze, it's... um, it's ragweed!

Puma -- Ah, I don't do BIG animals. -- Slender Weasel
