                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  SAND DANCERS?  Who?  MEDAL OF HONOR is the top team these days, 
buddies!  Practice pays for JACK PENDELTON, who pummelled LALVO OF THE PEN, to pocket 
14 points.  MARISAN TEN MEDARIN found out that DAYLA KIV isn't a democracy.  You've 
gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are DAYLA KIV's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  FARLITHAN THE CAT in 
the Dark Arena wasn't enough for BLAH of HOMER'S PETS.  Maybe that certain serving 
girl(?) at The Crystal Wheel will be!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will 
pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     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.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid DAYLA KIV 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
