                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  RED DOG GANG had cause to celebrate, after 
FENWRIST got 16 points by beating VISITING ORC.  A certain someone should cut down on 
the drinking and practice more, after losing 10 points to POTATO BUG.  (Discrete 
enough, SLIPPERS?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by CHILMAN 
ELSE, of MIDDLE WAY 25, who despite a 11-13-1 couldn't overcome ARADI's Number 1.  
Word has it one team in ARADI is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent 
to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  ARADI, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Blind Cyclops Inn.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
