                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at CARDOW HUNTERS left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by ALMOST EXACTLY.  Good show!  
Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as 
CAVEMEN can attest...  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, but 
ALMOST EXACTLY will tell you 325-262-18 is nothing to laugh at...  Practice pays for 
REPERCUSSIONIST, who pummelled LAUGHING LULU, to pocket 24 points.  Win some, lose 
some.  Speaking of which, REPERCUSSIONIST was winsome, after beating LAUGHING LULU 
and seeing her lose 20 points.  Now I can't insult HOMINY CRICKET, as she 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 LAPUR is taking speech lessons to try to bore 
their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of THE TAKEN should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of THE TAKEN 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as ALMOST EXACTLY apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, RED MARE is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Those who owe PATTY CAKES of STREET WALKERS money and had written her off, 
take note:  she'S BACK FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND she'S MAD!!!  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in LAPUR is the highlight of my life.  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

Red Mare -- You are learning two and I think both of my wins were very luck. I'm just 
hoping to survive till graduation. -- Linnaeus

Well, last turn was a cluster.  Passive passed on the tourney and fought so he could 
be bloodfeuded and wasn'.  Apocalypse should have fought so he could be bloodfeuded 
but didn'.  Apologies to the Street Walkers.

Hey, I finally got my name corrected and I won!  Coincidence?  I don' THINK so. -- 
Aerobic Violence

IB -- Well, finally got my fight. Grats on the win!  Glad I at least get you 
desperate. -- Hominy

Convicted Thief -- Bah. -- Repercussionist

Ox -- Tell Jorja to just add that word to her parlance!  Sorry I got excited. -- 
Repercussionist

Wow, personals!  Cool.  And that IS Roadkill back, so, hi!  Glad to see you. -- Jorja, 
Cardow Hunters

Repercussionist -- You didn't kill me, so all is good. -- Ox

It looks like we're maybe four-one today, despite which Jorja says she doesn't have 
time for us to submit personal personals today.  Something about the intrusion of real 
life. -- Red Mare, for the Cardow Hunters
