                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon DAL SHANG, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for STUTTER DUCK, who pummelled 
OLTIMAL THE LAME, to pocket 21 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
SWEET ANELLA was winsome, after beating GRIZOLPOP and seeing him lose 15 points.  
MELOST THE GRAY found out that DAL SHANG isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best 
to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in DAL SHANG is taking speech lessons to 
try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are DAL SHANG's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for DAL SHANG?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

particular. -- Melost the Gray

Doomed Duck -- You know, maybe you are. -- Grizolpop
P.S.  Oh, shoot, I see now that the orderlies dropped you on the way to the Infirmary
and you were dead on arrival.  I'm sorry about that.  But it must be the verification
of your name, huh?

Happy Phantom -- Avoid you?  Nothing would give me more pleasure.  A grinning specter
is not my idea of a pleasing view. -- Luisenya

Crucify -- Sounds like a plan.  If you'll just hold still for a few minutes.... --
