                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive 
observation?) as OUR HIGHEST HONOR can attest...  SORCERY COVENANT had cause to 
celebrate, after ULDI SHOON got 17 points by beating BELLHOP.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 11 points to 
CONVICTED ASSASSIN.  (Discrete enough, SOLDIER #3?) Now I can't insult DELON LUROST, 
as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I 
lay it on too thick) So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of GAMES LIBRARY should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of STL RAD, so did that sorry team shy from GAMES 
LIBRARY If challenges were horses, DELON LUROST could open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Alas, poor BELLHOP.  
We all know STL RAD's retirement plan isn't the best in the world.  ULDI SHOON, may 
you be as missed when your time comes.  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it 
slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  I shall 
return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Lorins Peln -- I am offensive.  Comeandget some is just Offensive. -- Mary Jane
P.S.  He smells bad, too.

Drunk Denis -- We're supposed to be friends.  We are always at the same parties. --
Bud Green

Kelorinso Vhu -- You need a bigger can opener. -- Comeandgetsome

Grunt -- Can you believe that?  Six skills and two ratings.  I must be a Genius.
Bell Hop seems to teach well also.  I guess I'll give him a challenge. -- Kronic
Blaze

Games Library -- For all the avoiding, we still matched up.  As you can see, it's not
out of fear that I was avoiding, I just wanted to spread my victories around a bit.
-- Misfit mgr., Green w/ Envy

I was just wondering how my male warrior was flipping a dagger in her offhand.  Last
time I checked, I didn't have any he/shes on my team. -- Misfit

     Hmmm, seems Mary Jane wanted to be female, if that's  incorrect we can fix that;
     just let us know. -- NAIEI

Bellhop -- Which one are you?  Number eleven or twelve, I think?  A little on the
large side for a dwarf, but I suppose you can't help it.  Being out of the tunnels
must encourage a little extra growth, hmm? -- Delon Lurost

Mary Jane -- I'm not getting the thing with the shoes.  They look impractical to me,
very likely to get full of sand and pebbles.  Surely you should wear boots instead?
-- Lorins Peln
P.S.  Or sandals, of course.

Comeandgetsome -- What if I don't want some? -- Keolorinso Vhu
P.S.  I really don't like it when that happens, doing fine, in the lead, and then,
fwoof, no more energy.

Jennifer Whitecloud -- Rubbing your cloud all over with chalk won't do the trick,
kiddo.  It comes off too easily.  You need a more basic approach, such as STARTING
with a white cloud. -- Lorille Voth
P.S.  Good luck trying to find one!

Denna -- Yep, well, you can look for more days like that, I bet. -- Korleen Maur
P.S.  Are you any relation to Drunk Dennis?  I surely hope for your sake that you
aren't.

Embezzler #1 -- That was my intent. -- Korleen Maur

Mike Colalillo -- Don't expect the bounty on me.  I'm the wrong one. -- Mordant
Deserter #459713
P.S.  There are two of us here.

Grunt 2 -- I know a plot when I get hit in the face by one. -- Embezzler #1

Cobblestone -- Which of us was the veteran and which the novice?  And why? -- Fratsfa
Slave from Lot #72

Finch's Art -- Damn.  But I LIKE birds. -- Guard Du Jour

Otis 3 -- Ah, but I will hone my years, waiting for the hour of your inattention. --
Assassin Third Class # 72

Soldier 2 -- I trust you enjoyed your...discomfiture. -- the Third Concubine

Soldier #3 -- And yours. -- Assassin Third Class # 72

Jungle Juice -- And definitely yours. -- Assassin Third Class # 72

Big Brother -- We are not impressed by bigness. -- Elder Ironshoe, speaking for the
Khalhums Dwarves of Osksi

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
