                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DAL SHANG.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain 
in DAL SHANG, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new 
top team--SAND DANCERS.  SAND DANCERS had cause to celebrate, after SORRELISHE got 10 
points by beating ELM.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 5 points to LUISENYA.  (Discrete enough, BOBIKA VHETT?) 
CHAEGO SARILDAN found out that DAL SHANG isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best 
to be Duelmaster here!  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!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Fair play must 
not be a credo of SAND DANCERS, as SORRELISHE permanently removed ELM of FORESTRY 
from the competition in a mismatched fight.  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it 
slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in DAL SHANG is the highlight of my life.  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 DAL SHANG 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
