                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in KYR'TERR, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--HOME LIFE.  He who 
laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe WS ARMS '05. 
Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop by 8!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's 
that for a perceptive observation?) as FEAR FACTORY 22 can attest...  WARCKERS posted 
a nice gain, to come in 3rd.  Everybody loves a winner...  HOME LIFE had cause to 
celebrate, after SCREAMER got 25 points by beating KHALHUMS DWARF.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 6 points to ANTHONY 
HENDAY.  (Discrete enough, PARADISE IN EXILE?) SHIVER found out that KYR'TERR isn't a 
democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  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?  If challenges were horses, BENEATH THE TIDE could 
open up a fast food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Admittedly Death waits for no one, but me thinks MOBY LOO of TRIBE FRACTAL LUX 
(2-0-0) is being sent off a little prematurely.  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, 
the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
