                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon LIN TIRIAN, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at SAND DANCERS left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by J.  Good show!  Practice pays for 
TESLA SHARPE, who pummelled KHALHUMS DWARF, to pocket 14 points.  Win some, lose 
some.  Speaking of which, THE COUNT was winsome, after beating KURTAL DUCK and seeing 
him lose 8 points.  HARNIE BLACK found out that LIN TIRIAN isn't a democracy.  You've 
gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who's the team that's been walking into 
taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  LIN TIRIAN, I leave you now.  The 
Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Lost Hope Inn.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir
