                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon AMEN-TEI, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for CEREBRUM, who pummelled 
TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE, to pocket 18 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 9 points to FAMILY TAXI.  (Discrete enough, 
GANGLION?) Out with the old, in with the new.  Enter M. CHARDINEE, handily defeating 
TOMAS KATT.  With 60 points, JADARA of SUPERIOR FORCES takes the position of 
AMEN-TEI's Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are AMEN-TEI's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Q:  What's a record like 10-5-1 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  
This week's winner:  PFC 1 of MEDAL OF HONOR J3!  The manager at MEDAL OF HONOR J3 
must have some new strategy for sending PFC 1, a warrior with 10-5-1, to the Dark 
Arena.  Watch this space!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must 
needs be wasting!   
     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.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid AMEN-TEI farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
