                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon KYR'TERR, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  THE BROTHERHOOD 71 had cause to celebrate, after 
STORM got 21 points by beating SOLAR SISTER.  A certain someone should cut down on 
the drinking and practice more, after losing 6 points to STORM.  (Discrete enough, 
SOLAR SISTER?) Can you believe it?  I OF THE KNEE DOLL apparently has better things 
to do as KYR'TERR's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a greater 
victory?  SHALL BE has taken hers place as the top, as KYR'TERR's new Duelmaster.  
Word has it one team in KYR'TERR 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 a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in KYR'TERR avoid HAZAARDS OF CLONING.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of NIGHTHAWKS, so did that sorry team shy from 
HAZAARDS OF CLONING Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and KAT is it right now.  
Most challenged warrior.  Isn't NIGHTHAWKS proud!   
     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.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
