                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DAYLA KIV.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at MEDAL 
OF HONOR are walking tall, as they are ranked 2nd on their first try!  Going for the 
Duelmaster soon?  MEDAL OF HONOR had cause to celebrate, after JOSE VALDEZ got 16 
points by beating GREELO DUFFUS.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 16 points to HANVAL THE CLAW.  (Discrete enough, 
KINVER TEN PALAN?) In DAYLA KIV, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find 
ourselves a new Duelmaster, SPIDERPIG.  Word has it one team in DAYLA KIV is taking 
speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in DAYLA KIV is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  DAYLA KIV, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
The Crystal Wheel.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Spiderpig -- That was a surprise.  How did you come to lose to me? -- Marisan ten
Medarin, the pleasantly surprised
