                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in TELORINTHE, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--NONSUCH HOUSE.  BAD SIGNS posted a nice 
gain, to come in 4th.  Everybody loves a winner...  Duelmaster WHITEY D'EAGLE from 
NONSUCH HOUSE is going for the gold, as he challenged OLDIES' ALTAR BOY.  Ooh, the 
excitement!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by ALTAR BOY, of 
OLDIES, who despite a 12-6-1 couldn't overcome TELORINTHE's Number 1.  So who was the 
warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got 
a basic problem...   
     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 CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 
'em.  The warriors of CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS found their efforts at combat frustrated 
as NONSUCH HOUSE apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Is it 
charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, 
PETRO SALM is the most challenged warrior.  PETRO SALM found himself challenged by a 
warrior 22 below:  SPORT.  SPORT of OLDIES kept his wits as he overcame PETRO SALM.   
     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 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 TELORINTHE?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir
