                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  LHC had cause to celebrate, after DR MANHATTAN 
got 25 points by beating LOUIE MURH.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, ROMOR 
SAITH was winsome, after beating ALICE and seeing her lose 19 points.  Can you 
believe it?  STEVE LAKE apparently has better things to do as DRAGONHEAD's Duelmaster 
than show up and fight!  In DRAGONHEAD, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we 
find ourselves a new Duelmaster, TORANS ULRIK.  Word has it one team in DRAGONHEAD is 
taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are DRAGONHEAD's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in DRAGONHEAD is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  DRAGONHEAD, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to 
foot my bill at The Warty Toad.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
