                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of JURINE.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at STAR WARS 
left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by SHEWISH BUFFET.  
Good show!  Practice pays for FIFINE GILLY, who pummelled R2-D2, to pocket 18 points. 
CHUCK ENDERN certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to GIRL 
SCOUT COOKIE and losing 6 points in the process!  Now I can't insult GRAHAM CRACKER, 
as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I 
lay it on too thick) So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in JURINE would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in JURINE is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid JURINE 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
