                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  BASH BROS EVANGELIST after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to consider 
abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  Good 
things come to those who fight well, as SAND DANCERS can attest, moving up by 1.  
GRIZZLED VETERANS had cause to celebrate, after IDYNY got 15 points by beating 
SERGEANT 3.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, IDYNY was winsome, after 
beating SERGEANT 3 and seeing him lose 5 points.  A certain someone saw STAR RUBY at 
The Blazing Unicorn with the shakes, and now she fails to show up to defend hers 
throne.  What a pathetic slob!  What can be a greater victory?  GORBAN TEN SKORA has 
taken his place as the top, as DAL SHANG's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in 
DAL SHANG is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are DAL SHANG's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the 
warriors of SAND DANCERS should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided 
team...  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, GRIZZLED VETERANS scurried away 
from SAND DANCERS.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
KARANZA THE WILD is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't SAND DANCERS 
proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid DAL SHANG farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir
