                                      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 AMY THYME, who pummelled 
PAINT IT BLACK, to pocket 14 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, HANDY 
DANDY was winsome, after beating JMJ and seeing him lose 10 points.  BUSTER MARNE 
found out that MORDANT isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster 
here!  Word has it one team in MORDANT is taking speech lessons to try to bore their 
opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     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 UPSTARTS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  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.  JACK B. NIMBLE found 
himself challenged by a warrior 24 below:  UG LEE.  UG LEE of UPSTARTS kept his wits 
as he was defeated by JACK B. NIMBLE.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in MORDANT would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in MORDANT is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

I am both Most and Least Popular?  Well, I suppose I am an acquired taste. -- Love
Pink, Deep Thinker

Just noticed I'm in the Top 10.  How (once) mighty Mordant has fallen!  We need a
contest... -- Paint It Black

Uda Lou Zar -- Okay, gotta admit, this time you got the name right. -- Leopard Spots

Masked Melon -- But your blood makes such a wonderful pink, perfect for my palette!

Moth Masher -- Good news:  You are quick and strong.  Bad news:  You couldn't hit
water if you fell out of a boat.  Might want to work on that. -- Jack of Shadows

Amy Thyme -- As I said, "THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!" -- Paint It Black

Ug Lee -- Oh, EXCELLENT!  A win for me, and on a day when the Maniacs are going oh-
fer!  Life is good. -- Buster Marne

Living Color -- I plan to!  I know where all the schoolbus stops are, and I'm going
to get out there early enough to RUN DOWN all those quarrelsome, germ-ridden BRATS
before the new driver comes along and picks them up. -- Schoolbus Driver

Love Pink -- I find that a night without a nefarious foe crushed now feels to me like
a night wasted! -- Masked Melon

We salute the tourney participants, with a special nod to Bosomy Goldmine and Gryre,
tourney victors. -- the Homicidal Maniacs, under duress
