                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  HOMICIDAL MANIACS had cause to celebrate, after MASKED MELON got 15 
points by beating GESHI SCRIVENER.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, LEOPARD 
SPOTS was winsome, after beating JMJ and seeing him lose 10 points.  ROCK RHYMES 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by SCHOOLBUS DRIVER of HOMICIDAL 
MANIACS.  Does MORDANT have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  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!  Perhaps the warriors of UPSTARTS should take 
up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, COLORFUL scurried away from UPSTARTS.  Oh, the shame!  Is it 
charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, 
JACK B. NIMBLE is the most challenged warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Citizens of MORDANT, be sure to settle your debts with MORIARITY of UPSTARTS.  
He's relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on his mind!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Masked Melon -- As you can see, I am not against doing something marginally crazy in
order to get the win. -- Leopard Spots

Justin Thyme -- I could have won that fight.  Easy.  But I was late for my mail
appointment and I have to look good for the Opening Ceremonies of the Tourney, so...
Next time, my boring friend. -- Love Pink

Madame Tiger -- Cross another weapon of the list.  *Scratches head*  Is fist well
suited to my style? -- Jack of Shadows

     Extremely unlikely.

Harvey -- The problem with trying to get the jump on me is, you always will.  Speed
may kill, but slow and steady wins the race (arena bout). -- Paint It Black.
P.S.  Thank you for the train, it was Tremendous!

Six dead in duels.  Not for the first time, either!  The city is getting threadbare
with all the perishing!  Unfortunately, the last to go are the landlords and the
moneylenders.

Battleship Grey -- I'll never tell! -- Masked Melon
P.S.  It's a secret linked to my power.  If I reveal it, nothing will ever be good
for me again.

Dr J -- I really didn't need that.  If you'd been an aimed blow, it would have been
slightly less embarrassing.  Probably. -- Buster Marne

Two-three, and that Buster thinks HE is embarrassed!  HE doesn't know embarrassing
from a hole in the ground. -- Schoolbus Driver

Leopard Spots -- The spots confused me.  I thought I was about to faint or something.
Then you hit me.  Not a good day for me. -- Masked Melon, feeling like a wimpy
honeydew

Jack of Shadows -- You won't hide from me THERE, silly boy. -- Madame Tiger

Rock Rhymes -- Word games.  Bah.  I hate word games. -- Domestic Dervish
P.S.  Carnelian Collegian?

Ah, standbys.  And the Captain is a fine specimen once you get him pinned to the
road. -- Schoolbus Driver

Jack B. Nimble -- I hope that candle scorches you in a sensitive location. -- Handy
Dandy
