                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at ASIAN INVASION left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by TRADERS OF TROCAR.  Good show!  
WORLD BLADES 15 had cause to celebrate, after INNUK SHUK got 21 points by beating 
MENG SI.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, TROCARAN DESERTER was winsome, 
after beating QUI GONG and seeing him lose 12 points.  Now I can't insult DIAN WEI, 
as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I 
lay it on too thick) So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are TROCAR's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
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.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

I was going to do a column, and then I looked at the fights, and saw that there was
only ONE match between two managed warriors, if you count the Traders of Trocar as
"managed" (questionable), and I thought, maybe not.  Besides, a win over a Shagornan
Wild Man is nothing to write home about.  Assuming anybody at home could read. --
Harazim Koreh

Dian Wei -- That was, I suppose, well done.  By you.  Me, I don't think I did so
well.... -- Worzeel

And two-one against standbys.  Oh, well.
