                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  SHEWISH BUFFET had cause to celebrate, after STRAWBERRY JHANS got 18 
points by beating LEAPS INTO THE AIR.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 14 points to STRAWBERRY JHANS.  (Discrete 
enough, LEAPS INTO THE AIR?) JANDINA found out that JADE MOUNTAIN isn't a democracy.  
You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in JADE 
MOUNTAIN is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in JADE MOUNTAIN is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Nightbringer -- Jerk. -- Fried Khalani

Again, we salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

Bubba -- You just did that to be nasty, didn't you? -- Kastenmar
P.S.  Well, I can go you one better, I just did what *I* did to be wimpy.  So there.

Balisong -- The harmonics of your "song" threatened my structural integrity.  This is
a probable behavior for a dwarf such as yourself. -- Green Rock

And a pair of wins against standbys.  If that's where the wins are, we'll take 'em.
-- Mondekker and Jandina
