                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  SAND DANCERS posted a nice gain, to come in 2nd.  Everybody loves a 
winner...  Practice pays for REEBOK, who pummelled DIRTY RUFFIAN, to pocket 18 
points.  In DAYLA KIV, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a 
new Duelmaster, DOLBY KLEE.  Word has it one team in DAYLA KIV is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  The manager at 
CORPS must have some new strategy for sending NIKE, a warrior with 2-0-0, to the Dark 
Arena.  Watch this space!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed 
body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in DAYLA KIV would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for DAYLA KIV?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
