                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in ARADI, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--RED DOG GANG.  Practice pays for HOFFA, 
who pummelled BALKO DUNN, to pocket 17 points.  A certain someone should cut down on 
the drinking and practice more, after losing 15 points to SLIPPERS.  (Discrete 
enough, Q MARK?) What can be a greater victory?  FALKYNOR has taken his place as the 
top, as ARADI's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in ARADI 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?   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ARADI?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
