                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of JHELUM.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at DOGS OF WAR 
left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by ARENA FELINES.  
Good show!  What's a move up by 5 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause 
for celebration, according to F BALLS.  DOGS OF WAR had cause to celebrate, after 
HOWARD got 25 points by beating ARAGANT.  ARAGANT certainly had a baffled expression 
on his face, after losing to HOWARD and losing 17 points in the process!  In JHELUM, 
nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, 
SCANDALF.  Word has it one team in JHELUM 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?  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, JIMMY CUSTER is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  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

Dangerous Criminal?  Damn straight!  He's a maniac!  He's out to KILL!  This beast--
and he is a beast, he's Ratani, and that's just a closet werecat--should be STOPPED!
Killed would be best.  He contributes nothing of value to this arena or to the city-
state.  Begone with him! -- Howard
P.S.  And he LAUGHED at me, the beast!

The Fratsfans have a wide-ranging taste in slaves, that's for sure.  They'll enslave
anyone they can get their hands on, nasty half-elves that they are!  I think, myself,
that we should make WAR on them.  It would serve them right! -- Jimmy Custer

Celeborn -- Umm, correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't you have pointy ears?  I'm
sure someone mentioned that.  Pointy ears, graceful movements, and a suave manner.
'Fraid you flunk on all points there. -- Hannibal
P.S.  Also, you're not a generous winner.

Galadriel -- You are a sinister lady, and I mistrust that sort of thing.  I try not
to let sinistros get the upper hand. -- Epimonidas
P.S.  But, being basically a kind, generous person, you will note that I was
openhanded--as you were NOT--when it came to skill sharing.

Well, gosh, was my face red! -- Ghost of Bigdog
P.S.  What the heck was the Embezzling Scribe DOING out there?  I was wearing ARMOR,
dammit.  I hope that my teammates will call on the armorer--it was Jims of Jhelum--
and tell him how GOOD his armor was against a DAGGER.
P.P.S.  Gods, I really hate being dead.

Lord Protector Happy Cat -- They tell me you will be content with a new sandbox.
That, we can manage, even on our budget. -- Arenamaster Narhmin

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to announce with glad hearts that Heathen
Hatebred is no longer just a friend, but also an alliance-mate.  Heathen brings a lot
with him to our alliance.  His experience, talent, and loyalty will be a great
benefit to us all.  Welcome Heathen; may all our enemies' blood continue to flow
freely! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
