                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for ACROPHOBIAC, who pummelled 
TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE, to pocket 20 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 1 points to HOFFA.  (Discrete enough, BIG 
DOG?) Can you believe it?  CHOPPED RABBIT apparently has better things to do as 
ARADI's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a greater victory?  BIG DOG 
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!   
     And how sociable are ARADI's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Congratulations, AMBITIOUS GUARD.  The manager of RED DOG GANG should have 
sent DEAD DOG to the Dark Arena for having a 7-5-0 long ago.  Ask not a spymaster for 
counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARADI is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
ARADI?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

recovered from last time. -- Big Dog

delicious, though the Panepple with it was strange. -- Dead Dog
