                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  
Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe PASTA.  Last week they got 0-3-0 to drop by 4! 
What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to GAMES LIBRARY.  Good things come to those who fight well, 
as NUMBERS can attest, moving up by 3.  Practice pays for HARD CARD, who pummelled 
JOURNEY, to pocket 20 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 14 points to MELONDARION NORIS.  (Discrete enough, 
ARUGULA?) Well, Duelmaster PERCIATELLI challenged GENERATION X's UBIQUITI BULLET.  Is 
a 16-8-1 good enough?  In OSKSI, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find 
ourselves a new Duelmaster, UBIQUITI BULLET.  Word has it one team in OSKSI 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?  Perhaps the warriors of AESIR should take up some 
hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good breeding scorns the 
"warriors" of VEGGIES, so did that sorry team shy from AESIR Is it charming 
personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, UBIQUITI 
BULLET is the most challenged warrior.  HYPE MACHINE challenged VELOVORINSAL NORS!  
Who says GENERATION X are just a bunch of wimps!  HYPE MACHINE of GENERATION X kept 
his wits as he was subdued by VELOVORINSAL NORS.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
I hear JOURNEY of THE BLACK COMPANY tired of the battles and was thinking of becoming 
a priest.  HARD CARD of DESK JOCKEYS saved him the effort of getting references.  Ask 
not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  OSKSI, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Elefont.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Eldaristan Faro -- That felt great.  You caught me off guard when you didn't come out
swinging fast, but I know better than to hesitate like you did.  Were you hoping for
Nancy again?  I am not Nancy. -- Arugula

Our congratulations to Perciatelli, the new Fashion Food of the Isle. -- Jorja and
the Games Librarians

Whiff -- Phew!  Too much sulfur. -- Merisandara Tiron

Perciatelli -- Augh.  If you leave, I might be able to lose some of this extra
weight.  I'm just a fool for pasta. -- Velovorinsal Nors

Vithar -- I see the writing on the wall.  You'd think the custodians would keep this
place cleaner, wouldn't you? -- Melondarion Noris

Arugula -- I'm just not a vegetarian.  At all. -- Eldaristan Faro

At least *I* got a win, even if it IS over a standby. -- Kandaresron Varn
