                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon LIN TIRIAN, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  DEATH PENALTY had cause to celebrate, after 
HOLLOWPOINT got 10 points by beating MASKED MARAUDER.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking 
of which, HOLLOWPOINT was winsome, after beating MASKED MARAUDER and seeing him lose 
5 points.  In LIN TIRIAN, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves 
a new Duelmaster, VEILED POISON.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of DEATH PENALTY, alone and unchallenged.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, THE INSTITUTE scurried away from DEATH PENALTY.  
Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, THE WEEPER is the most challenged warrior.  Willing to win 
at any cost is MUSGRAVE, who challenged BARON BLADE, 10 points junior.  Our 
sympathies, BARON BLADE!  I thought MUSGRAVE showed great skill and promise when she 
beat BARON BLADE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
LIN TIRIAN would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  LIN TIRIAN, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Lost Hope Inn.  'Til 
next time-- Novgorodny Vir

One-four.  Really, I despair of my teammates.  The alley sweepings, the absolute
DREGS of this great empire.  How can they hold their heads up?  Other than having
them in rigid, form-fitting armor, of course. -- Ann Nasty
