                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ARKERS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  FOREST GARDEN after a 
sorry 0-0-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 
'Can't fight no more' blues!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you 
didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to HOYT FOUNDATION.  SMITHSONIAN posted 
a nice gain, to come in 2nd.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for THE 
GYPSY, who pummelled ARIXIA, to pocket 30 points.  STANDING ROOM ONLY certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to KUNG-FU MASTER and losing 17 points 
in the process!  Duelmaster THE ANXIOUS MAN from HOYT FOUNDATION is going for the 
gold, as he challenged SERIOUS LEE's DEFENSIVE LEE.  Ooh, the excitement!  Now I 
can't insult DEFENSIVE LEE, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new 
Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who's the team that's been 
walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are ARKERS' warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in ARKERS avoid BLOODY HAND 
CLAN.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of SMITHSONIAN, so did that 
sorry team shy from BLOODY HAND CLAN If challenges were horses, DEFENSIVE LEE could 
open up a fast food joint!  Take heed ARKERS, of the unprincipled action of CORRECT 
CHANGE.  By challenging MAUD STONEGUT, 29 points below him, CORRECT CHANGE besmirches 
the noble art of dueling.  CORRECT CHANGE won victory over MAUD STONEGUT.  The whole 
thing leaves a bitter memory.  MASON-DIXON found himself challenged by a warrior 21 
below:  DOC SCURLOK.  DOC SCURLOK of THE OUTLAWS 2 kept his wits as he beat 
MASON-DIXON.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Q:  What's a record 
like 19-21-0 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  This week's winner:  ZOO 
of Z GLADIATORZ!  THE GYPSY of HOYT FOUNDATION sends ARIXIA of BROKEN SPIRITS goes to 
the Weary Warrior's Retirement Home.  ARKERS has no place for weaklings!  You've 
heard about ZANY of Z GLADIATORZ.  Death plays no favorites, and neither do I.  What 
was a 8-7-0 doing on the fields in the first place?  Ponder the possibilities, 
ARKERS:  BLOODY HAND CLAN has allowed LUCIFEROUS HOPE of BROKEN SPIRITS to kill DED 
'ARD SKULLKRUSH unchallenged!  Is there no honour left???  Ask not for whom the sword 
slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARKERS is the highlight of my life.  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 ARKERS?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
