                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  VAN DUEL had cause to celebrate, after ICE CREAM MAN got 20 points by 
beating HARGERD.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, ICE CREAM MAN was winsome, 
after beating HARGERD and seeing him lose 14 points.  MOONDARK found out that 
TRICORUS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are TRICORUS' warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in TRICORUS avoid DARK HORSEMEN. 
As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of CM - THE REVENGE, so did that 
sorry team shy from DARK HORSEMEN Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, NERDS is the most challenged warrior. 
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in TRICORUS is the highlight of my life.  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

Three-two this time, an improvement!  As usual, the wins were over standbys.  The
losses, today, were to Van Duelers.  That actually sounds more like some kind of
demolition derby, doesn't it?  Well, no matter, they're good.  We salute 'em, what
the heck, after all, they didn't kill any of us. -- Moondark
