                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for JOHN COFFEY, who pummelled 
GENTLE BORIS, to pocket 23 points.  VEILED POISON successfully staved off a grab for 
the roses by MASKED MARAUDER of SAND DANCERS.  Does LIN TIRIAN have no one talented 
enough to dethrone her?  Word has it one team in LIN TIRIAN is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in SAND DANCERS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like 
a pup with its tail between its legs, THE INSTITUTE scurried away from SAND DANCERS.  
Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, LEO KNOX is the most challenged warrior.  Mismatched by 11 
points, LEO KNOX was defeated by MUSGRAVE.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought 
MUSGRAVE showed great skill and promise when she beat LEO KNOX.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  The audience gave a nice round of rasberries to GENTLE BORIS of SAND DANCERS, 
for expiring in such an ungraceful fashion.  8-9-1, indeed!  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.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for LIN TIRIAN?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

Two-three... well, that's better than last time, I guess.  Although nobody has yet
explained why *I* have to do the public relations for our team!  NOT my line, you
know.  Having to be polite is a great strain, and probably accounts for my loss--I
don't have the ENERGY left to win. -- Ann Nasty the Ill Used
