                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in DAYLA KIV, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--COUNTRY PIE.  
HOGSHEAD successfully staved off a grab for the roses by KOMAR THE PENNILESS of DAYLA 
KIV.  Does DAYLA KIV have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who's the team 
that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt 
to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  If challenges were horses, GREELO DUFFUS 
could open up a fast food joint!  My love of complete Spyreports dictates that I note 
the mismatched fight, JACK PENDELTON and KORBIN TEN BARAN.  Are MEDAL OF HONOR 
unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I thought JACK PENDELTON showed great skill and 
promise when he was subdued by KORBIN TEN BARAN.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Those who owe TP of COUNTRY PIE money and had written him off, take note:  
he'S BACK FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, 
for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
DAYLA KIV, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Crystal 
Wheel.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Two-three this time, and it's an improvement.  That's pathetic.  It must be the
weather.  The river is frozen solid enough to run a squad of cavalry over it, not
that they would do it--easy way to break a horse's neck, or your own!  Two wins and
two losses to standbys.  Still, two wins IS an improvement over last time. -- Kogan
