                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for UNRELIABLE, who pummelled KAT, to pocket 16 points.  
Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, UNRELIABLE was winsome, after beating KAT 
and seeing her lose 10 points.  What can be a greater victory?  UNBELIEVABLE has 
taken his place as the top, as LIN TIRIAN's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in 
LIN TIRIAN is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet 
it works.   
     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 J, alone and unchallenged.  As a woman of 
good breeding scorns the "warriors" of SHEWISH BUFFET, so did that sorry team shy 
from J Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and KURTAL DUCK is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't SAND DANCERS proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Like a 
mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid LIN TIRIAN farewell-- Novgorodny 
Vir

-- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

Mo J -- I don't like it that you won, human, but you did.  So, good job. -- Kurtal
Duck

Mike -- It's because the cussed Commission insists on calling me a dwarf, isn't it?
-- Urik Darkheart, non-dwarf

Squeek -- Imagine if I'd been a cat!  Then you'd really be squeeking. -- Haroun

P.S.  I might like being a cat.  Let me think about this.  But not a were-cat.  All
