                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for BENT, who pummelled MAGE'S APPRENTICE, to pocket 20 
points.  JONNA THANE certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to 
TEMB and losing 4 points in the process!  SHANKS PONY successfully staved off a grab 
for the roses by BITTER VETCH of BAD APPLES.  Does ROCANIS have no one talented 
enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in ROCANIS 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?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  ROCANIS, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at Mylar's.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir
