                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in VALAMANTIS, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--MIDDLE WAY 10.  Practice pays for 
LENDIS OHLM, who pummelled HOBGOBLIN, to pocket 14 points.  HOBGOBLIN certainly had a 
baffled expression on hers face, after losing to LENDIS OHLM and losing 13 points in 
the process!  Can you believe it?  STREET RACER apparently has better things to do as 
VALAMANTIS' Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a greater victory?  
CARELESS BEAR has taken his place as the top, as VALAMANTIS' new Duelmaster.  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
