                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon DAYLA KIV, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  SAND DANCERS posted a nice gain, to come in 2nd.  
Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for KORBIN TEN BARAN, who pummelled TEMPE 
FACE, to pocket 18 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, BIG WHITE GOOSE 
was winsome, after beating BOOMER and seeing her lose 11 points.  In DAYLA KIV, 
nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, GORAN 
DJIAN.  Word has it one team in DAYLA KIV is using psychics to predict wins.  They 
lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in DAYLA KIV avoid MEDAL OF HONOR.  The warriors of MEDAL OF HONOR 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as I HATE TOURNEYS apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
GREELO DUFFUS is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't SAND DANCERS proud!  
Word has it GEORGE WAHLEN suffered a romantic setback.  Note how he challenged KINVER 
TEN PALAN, 26 points his senior.  Like a fly challenging a flyswatter, GEORGE WAHLEN 
challenged KINVER TEN PALAN, and got squashed.  We sadists got a kick out it!  (as 
did GEORGE WAHLEN)  
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Sober up, young warriors, and take note of TEMPE FACE's fate!  KORBIN TEN BARAN of 
SAND DANCERS handily did it in.  Experience counts for something on DAYLA KIV's 
sands.  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in DAYLA KIV is the highlight of my life.  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
