                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TRICORUS, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  DARK HORSEMEN had cause to celebrate, after 
MOONDARK got 21 points by beating XENOLEE.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
MOONDARK was winsome, after beating XENOLEE and seeing her lose 17 points.  Those who 
hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by SALMGEDAN, of DARK HORSEMEN, who 
despite a 15-17-1 couldn't overcome TRICORUS' Number 1.  Word has it one team in 
TRICORUS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of DARK HORSEMEN, alone and unchallenged.  As 
a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of AMAZON ELITE, so did that sorry 
team shy from DARK HORSEMEN  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in TRICORUS is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid 
TRICORUS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Four-one!  This is a pleasant surprise. -- the Dark Horsemen

Wachichu -- Considering the Commission's track record with races (they list me as
Convincian, of all things, when I'm Rirorni!), what are you really? -- Salmgedan

Xenolee -- I don't WANT to believe you did that, but the evidence was all over the
place.  Ouch. -- Skalvord

Yolanda -- How did that...?  Ah!  Style advantage.  I'll take it. -- Moondark

And a couple of standbys.  Okay. -- Hargerd and Short Bull
