                                      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 LORAND TEN SORN, who pummelled 
SWEET ANELLA, to pocket 22 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, MALDI 
STONEBREAKER was winsome, after beating MARAN TEN PALAN and seeing him lose 5 points. 
KURLO TEN DOSHAN 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.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of SCRABBLE, alone and unchallenged.  As a woman 
of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of BASH BROS EVANGELIST, so did that sorry 
team shy from SCRABBLE Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good 
oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, KALDAN TEN KARAN is the most challenged warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir
