                                      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--SAND DANCERS.  
Practice pays for KOGAN DJIAN, who pummelled TRAVELING TINKER, to pocket 18 points.  
Well, Duelmaster TAX MAIL-IN challenged SAND DANCERS' KORBIN TEN BARAN.  Is a 23-2-0 
good enough?  KORBIN TEN BARAN 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...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of GAMES CRIP PLAYS, alone and unchallenged.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, I HATE TOURNEYS scurried away from GAMES 
CRIP PLAYS.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, RUVAN TEN ZHALEN could open 
up a fast food joint!  Mismatched by 11 points, BAIKAL S'KREN overcame STUMPY.  Is 
this really worth noting?  I thought STUMPY showed great skill and promise when it 
was overcame by BAIKAL S'KREN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  DAYLA KIV, 
I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Crystal Wheel.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
