                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon VALAMANTIS, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  MIDDLE WAY 10 had cause to celebrate, after 
KOLBERT MOON got 17 points by beating KHALHUMS DWARF.  A certain someone should cut 
down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 16 points to KUNG-FU MASTER.  
(Discrete enough, NEEVAN POVAR?) In VALAMANTIS, nothing is permanent (except Death), 
and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, MOOSEHEAD.  Word has it one team in 
VALAMANTIS 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?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Citizens of VALAMANTIS, be sure to settle your debts with TREMOR of DISASTERS. 
She's relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on hers mind!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in VALAMANTIS is the highlight of my life.  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 
VALAMANTIS?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Oh, for the cat's sake!  Just us and the standbys.  Four-one against 'em, since
Kolbert, who is always vulnerable to a female figure, lost to the Venomous Concubine.
What a goop he is!  There doesn't seem any point to individual personals or a column,
so this is what you've got.  If you're reading this newsletter at all. -- Imrom
