                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in ROCANIS, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--MEN OF STEEL.  MIDDLE WAY 20 had cause 
to celebrate, after MERVIN OLDES got 13 points by beating RIRORNI SPY.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 6 points to 
RIRORNI SOLDIERS.  (Discrete enough, DENNA FEYL?) Now I can't insult KASPAR, 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.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     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.  More important duties call me.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ROCANIS?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Nalenthu -- Drat. -- Mervin Oldes

Kulgan -- That was a surprise.  Are you feeling well?  Not having an outbreak of
Spring Fever, or maybe of Input Error? -- Gerhart Ervin

Double drat, even TRIPLE drat, we've got three more losses here.  Gerhart got the
only win?  He's going to be insufferable.  Ah, make that "more insufferable than
usual."  Oh, well, good fights, we guess. -- the rest of the Middle Way
