                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of SNOWBOUND.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
NK POWER, who pummelled MBA, to pocket 23 points.  A certain someone should cut down 
on the drinking and practice more, after losing 16 points to NK POWER.  (Discrete 
enough, MBA?) Now I can't insult KINGU, as he 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 
SNOWBOUND is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are SNOWBOUND's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some 
nasty rumors, the guys in PUBLIC ENEMY are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No 
need to avoid 'em.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of MESOPOTAMIA, 
so did that sorry team shy from PUBLIC ENEMY Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, 
and JENNA KUUL is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't MIDDLE WAY 6 proud!  
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid SNOWBOUND farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Nefara of Public Enemies -- We salute you as Duelmaster.  Perhaps now, with a good,
solid, upright Duelmaster, we will get a DM Column? -- The Life Impacts

     Are you holding your breath on that?

Tiamat -- It was my demise rather than yours.  I am a sad old lady, but I salute you.
-- Grandma Miller

Oliver Queen -- Checkmate. -- Cantex

Spectra -- I realy am surprised to have won that.  Thanks for the gift. -- Saxaphone
(being more jazzy with less wailing)

Zurisday -- How could you?!  You killed our godling?  You are one dirty rotten Public
Enemy.  15(+1)-21(+2)-16-8(+2)-17(+3)-7-9(+1) TP will probably not be on The
Consortium Tournament Of The Dead List, but you still are a mean old cad! -- The Life
Impacts (hoping for a decent recruit--unlike Circle K)

Embezzling Scribe -- Oops!  I didn't know my own intelligence, er, ah, strength.
Enjoy your short time "at rest." -- MBA (Excited with his 1st kill!)

Kingu -- We fancy "Snowmageddon." -- those who walk the Middle Way when the snow
isn't too deep

Saxophone -- Yes, there was a distinct resemblance to a stepped-on cat in your
performance. -- Jenna Kuul

Cantex -- Seeing stars means it's clear.  Not here at the moment, alas, though the
fog is finally lifting. -- Garuth Holm

Three-two!  Things are looking up here.

Crushing Belial -- Me crush you?  Not likely.  I think you just tripped and crushed
yourself. -- Ursulina Trell
P.S.  I hadn't expected to one-shot you.  Hope that doesn't get you in trouble with
your manager.

Cuneiform -- Not a problem.  You should see what MY writing looks like. -- Garuth
Holm

Zero -- Not my favorite digit. -- Newlin Ohm

Bonescraper -- Heck.  You golems are just WEIRD.  I would NOT look better scraped
down to the bone.  Trust me on this. -- Jenna Kuul

Cantex -- The chillblains got to me. -- Oliver Queen
