                                      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 DEEVINE, who pummelled 
SELAUNAH, to pocket 11 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 7 points to RUTHLESS JAYWALKER.  (Discrete enough, SHADY 
LADY?) In AMEN-TEI, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new 
Duelmaster, MARIO ANDRETTI.  Word has it one team in AMEN-TEI 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?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in HEART OF 
DARKNESS II are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, THE FORSAKEN scurried away from HEART OF DARKNESS 
II.  Oh, the shame!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in AMEN-TEI would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in AMEN-TEI is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
AMEN-TEI, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Swinging 
Aardvark.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
