                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of MORDANT.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  What's a move up 
by 6 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to 
STEEL LEGION.  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, but 
SWEORDMASTERS will tell you 472-425-58 is nothing to laugh at...  Practice pays for 
GOLD, who pummelled BALLAST, to pocket 23 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, ZIMA was winsome, after beating HATCH BATTENER and seeing him lose 16 points.  
Well, Duelmaster SWEET STUFF challenged LIVE FROM MOSCOW!'s BELY MEDVED.  Is a 18-6-1 
good enough?  Now I can't insult BELY MEDVED, 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 MORDANT is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in MORDANT avoid LAB EXPERIMENTS.  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of SHE'S CRAFTY, so did that sorry team shy from LAB 
EXPERIMENTS If challenges were horses, MAKESHIFT ANCHOR could open up a fast food 
joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Citizens of MORDANT, be sure to settle your debts with SIMPLICITY of LAB EXPERIMENTS. 
It's relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on its mind!  Like a tattered, 
worn-out, faded, out-of-fashion garment cast out to rot, SLAP PAPPY of MANNEQUIN'S 
BEST has been summarily sent to the Dark Arena.  Q:  What's a record like 9-6-0 get 
you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  This week's winner:  STEEPLEJACK of 
SWEORDMASTERS!  Charity is unknown in MORDANT, and rightly so.  SHE'S CRAFTY exacted 
their revenge against LAB EXPERIMENTS.  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will 
pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in MORDANT 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 
MORDANT?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Makeshift Anchor and Heidi? -- I'm starting to realize the value of back-up weapons.
Crowbarbie did pack a mean punch though.  Granted, it's now a fist attached to a
corpse. -- SwineTiger

Undertaker -- If you want some tips on how to keep up with Tankerbell, send me a PM.
I have some advice that's going to improve his chances against her immensely.  Just
payin' it forward. -- SwineTiger

Tankerbell -- I apologize for calling you scum.  All in all, you fight very well for
a total parry.  I have learned from this experience.  Thank you. -- Undertaker

Reaping Beauty -- Ow!!!  Could you hit any harder? -- Vengence
P.S.  That was a rhetorical question.

Lung Cancer -- A lunger versus an aimed blow is always bad.  Especially if the lunger
has 14 more fights than the aimed blow.  I needed the skills anyway. -- Gangrel

She's Crafty -- I was sorry to hear of Crowbarbie's demise.  She was one of Mordant's
better warriors.  However, congrats are in order for Tankerbell and Reaping Beauty.
-- Kas, mgr. The Ministry
