                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for FLAGPOLE PANTIES, who 
pummelled M. CHARDINEE, to pocket 17 points.  YATZEE certainly had a baffled 
expression on its face, after losing to MARY JANE and losing 11 points in the 
process!  Now I can't insult HEARTS, as she has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh 
great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who was the warrior 
seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
HEARTS is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't GAMES LIBRARY proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  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 OSKSI?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Happy Apple -- I'm very glad you're happy, dear.  It does make life more enjoyable,
doesn't it?  Keep that smile on your face, it will take ten years off your life. --
Hearts
P.S.  Oh, dear, I meant, ten years off your AGE.  I am so sorry, it's the FROWNS that
take it off your life.

Eternal D.J. -- Music paralyzes me.  I suppose that's why you do it. -- Yatzee
P.S.  I'm going to petition the Commission to disallow "humming" as an offensive
tactic.  It's too horrible.
P.P.S.  Besides, I'm allergic to bees.

Soldier #4 -- I fear that you are fated for "early recycling" as some managers have
begun calling it.  I suppose that, what with you being a golem, this isn't the
disaster that some born-people might call it?  Just curious. -- Sharan Khor

Soldier #3 -- Hey!  That hurts, and I wasn't doing anything wrong!  Not REALLY wrong.
-- Domino Joe
P.S.  Hmm, I wonder if I can use a domino as a shield.  And if so, which one....

Soldier #1 -- Well!  We must have made quite a spectacle out there, both of us
stumbling around exhaustedly.  I suppose being a dwarf, and thus closer to the
ground, it was easier for you to hold off falling down. -- Tarhella Vhu
P.S.  Good beginning for your career.
P.P.S.  It would be amusing to see a fight that ends with BOTH warriors falling down
from exhaustion, but I don't suppose the Commission would go for allowing a fight to
a draw.

Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
