                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at IMPROVED ILLUSION left the arena dejected, after being 
kicked out of the top spot by VILE REAVERS.  Good show!  A certain someone should cut 
down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 9 points to YIRUNTA ZUL.  
(Discrete enough, I'M POWERLESS?) Can you believe it?  UMI apparently has better 
things to do as ILLIS' Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a greater 
victory?  BRANA GOREFANG has taken hers place as the top, as ILLIS' new Duelmaster.  
Word has it one team in ILLIS is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent 
to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are ILLIS' warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the warriors 
of IMPROVED ILLUSION should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided 
team...  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, VILE REAVERS scurried away from 
IMPROVED ILLUSION.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, EL CID ZUL could open 
up a fast food joint!  LUPUS FURIOUS challenged EL CID ZUL!  Who says VILE REAVERS 
are just a bunch of wimps!  LUPUS FURIOUS of VILE REAVERS kept his wits as he won 
victory over EL CID ZUL.   
     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.   
     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.  ILLIS, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Warty Toad.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:

DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
