Oh, great, I beat Seef Haraine, the Venomous Concubine, and now I guess I have to look forward to Spike McGold coming back and beating me up. Why does he have to hang out with her? Why haven't the monsters eaten him? Why is life so mean to me? Larsen E SPY REPORT It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters. Look on my work, ye mighty, and despair! THE GOLDEN FISH had cause to celebrate, after FINDELLIS got 14 points by beating FRATSFA SLAVE. Win some, lose some. Speaking of which, 4 BRIDGES was winsome, after beating KORONEDUS and seeing him lose 4 points. Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by VETERAN MERCENARY, of NIANIA, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome NIANIA's Number 1. Word has it one team in NIANIA is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death. I'll bet it works. And how sociable are NIANIA's warriors? Come, let us see. Perhaps the warriors of THE GOLDEN FISH should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team... Like a pup with its tail between its legs, OUT THE WINDOW scurried away from THE GOLDEN FISH. Oh, the shame! The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on... Oh hard! that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting! Do not think spyreporting in NIANIA 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 DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME LARSEN E 5421 10 3 1 104 THE GOLDEN FISH (147) CHALLENGER ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME 4 BRIDGES 5347 4 2 0 60 OUT THE WINDOW (630) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME FINDELLIS 5427 7 3 1 45 THE GOLDEN FISH (147) SASHINDA 5434 5 1 0 43 THE GOLDEN FISH (147) CHALLENGER INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME KORONEDUS 5430 4 4 0 29 THE GOLDEN FISH (147) VERELESSE 5432 4 3 1 24 THE GOLDEN FISH (147) -SWITZER'S 5350 3 1 0 24 OUT THE WINDOW (630) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -JIRIK DURSTE 5435 2 1 0 18 THE ABYSMALS (642) -DIVAKA MANWAR 5437 1 2 0 16 THE ABYSMALS (642) -MISSISSIPPI 5349 1 0 0 15 OUT THE WINDOW (630) -EJ DOME 5351 1 0 0 13 OUT THE WINDOW (630) -GERSKOL KILLIT 5439 1 1 0 10 THE ABYSMALS (642) -ORANGE CONE 5348 1 1 0 8 OUT THE WINDOW (630) -HELESA GREEN 5436 1 2 1 6 THE ABYSMALS (642) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn.

If you stay in Niania, you may, I don't say you WILL, but you MAY see me and my teammates, okay, my teammates and I, go out and help our graduated teammate Spike fight MONSTERS at his fishing camp. So I have to stay in practice, on my toes, up to the top of my ability, all that tedious stuff. -- Verelesse P.S. I bet you could come too, if you'd like. Of course, if you're a tourney team, this may be inconvenient for you. Whatever. Somebody has to do the tourneys, after all, and I'm just glad it isn't me. Jirik Durste -- Why didn't you learn something? I was demonstrating some of my BEST moves. (glower) Are you one of those humans who thinks it's "low class" to learn from a karragit? If so, fie upon you. -- Sashinda P.S. I don't know what that "fie upon you" thing means, but it sounds good, doesn't it? 4 Bridges -- I came to you, and I just didn't know which way to go! -- Findellis Gerskol Killit -- Drat. That is embarrassing. -- Koronedus Managers of NIANIA, take heed. We are coming! Bringing chaos and creating havok unto your sands we shall. We are coming! We will bring pain and spilled blood upon you. The drums have begun, the terror begins! We are coming! Prepare for havok! -- TEAM HAVOK Divaka Manwar -- Listen! It wasn't ME who took your payroll! You want to get after the THIEF. -- Tarash Tarindanall, Creative Accountant P.S. Damn, it's impossible to argue with these golems.... Larsen E -- You actually handled that fight well; I was surprised. But Spike will still come and beat you up. I will enjoy watching it. -- Seef Haraine, Venomous Concubine Managers of NIANIA, take heed. We are coming! Bringing chaos and creating havok unto your sands we shall. We are coming! We will bring pain and spilled blood upon you. The drums have begun, the terror begins! We are coming!
