                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon DWES EG, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in DWES EG, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--WHY TRAVEL?.  
Perhaps it is WHY TRAVEL? members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 20th 
to 3rd last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Rumor has it an incurable disease has 
swept the stable of HOPEFULS.  Note their drop in the rankings from 12th to 25th.  
Watch out!!!  Like a chunk of francium heaved into a wet pond, ERATTA1 blew up the 
rankings to 20!  LIGHT WEIGHTS had cause to celebrate, after BRILLIANT got 24 points 
by beating YANG.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 9 points to BRILLIANT.  (Discrete enough, YANG?) NECROTICA found 
out being DWES EG's Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, receiving 2 challenges!  
The arena was more crowded than usual this time, as JOB faced DWES EG's Duelmaster.  
Now I can't insult JOB, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new 
Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in DWES EG is 
using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of RESTRICTIONS, alone and unchallenged.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of WHY TRAVEL?, so did that sorry team 
shy from RESTRICTIONS  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an 
overtaxed simile, I now bid DWES EG farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
