                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  STRIKER FORCE had cause to celebrate, after 
STRIKE 2 got 17 points by beating NEOSHA PALMER.  A certain someone should cut down 
on the drinking and practice more, after losing 16 points to STRIKE 2.  (Discrete 
enough, NEOSHA PALMER?) HUEY found out that VALAMANTIS isn't a democracy.  You've 
gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who's the team that's been walking into 
taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of STRIKER FORCE should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of CM - SCORPIO, so did that sorry team shy from 
STRIKER FORCE If challenges were horses, PETE MOSS could open up a fast food joint!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

We see the Bandit Prince has been earning his keep.  Is this good, or should we be
worried that he's going to get loose and take to his old ways?

One-four, and *I* am going to do the personal because I won.  Oder may be popularity
leader, but so what?  That doesn't win fights. -- Neosha Palmer
