                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  SORCERY COVENANT had cause to celebrate, after 
ORBIN ATRIUM got 15 points by beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, KUNG-FU MASTER was winsome, after beating KOVARAMANN VOTH and 
seeing him lose 12 points.  RIGATONI found out that OSKSI isn't a democracy.  You've 
gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in OSKSI is using 
psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are OSKSI's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
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 if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  OSKSI, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster 
has agreed to foot my bill at The Elefont.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Sativa -- Ha!  "Going to seed," are you?  Take that!  Actually, good fight.  I like
the ones where I win. -- Elvorn Marslan

The Venomous Concubine?  But what if I didn't WANT to fight the Venomous Concubine?
Sure, I won, but is there honor in defeating a woman who is not truly trained for
this? -- Kovarmann Voth

Ihitterquitter -- Well, it took me several hits to make you call quits, but by the
gods of the storm, it worked.  Good.  I like it when things work. -- Tarobinz Maur
P.S.  And since you're a golem, I don't have to offer you a drink afterward, do I?

Farfale -- Ack, I must not've had the water hot enough.  Now I've got goo and paste

all over the place, and my teammates are annoyed. -- Vandelshimhan Tiru
P.S.  And you do NOT want to know what my teammates get up to when they're annoyed.
Trust me on this one.

Colt 45 -- Maybe you need to train your caliber? -- Melandon Sorn
P.S.  Not that I'm complaining!

Our congratulations to Bud Green. -- Jorja and the Games Librarians

A salute to all who participated in the tourney, with a special congratulations for
Eternal DJ, who made tourney victor at the ADM level. -- Jorja and the Games
