                                      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.  Practice pays for 
CLUMSY MUTT, who pummelled THE STAND, to pocket 27 points.  A certain someone should 
cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 18 points to ARMITAGE.  
(Discrete enough, GERMAINE SHEPPARD?) RED HAMMER found out that JHELUM isn't a 
democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in 
JHELUM is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  CLUMSY MUTT of DOGS 
OF WAR spared THE STAND (7-7-0) from having to lose any more fights.  What's your 
next plan, TL;DR?  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 JHELUM?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Kenya -- Too hot for me there.  A long-haired dog like me, I want temperate and
subarctic climates, you know? -- Germaine Sheppard
P.S.  Or, at least, I don't want equatorial temperatures TODAY.

Cassis -- I wasn't--  Well, okay, I was planning to bury you, mostly, in the sand,
but I was going to dig down to a cooler layer, you know?  Give you a thermal break,
sort of. -- Mat'ari

Ironside -- And you're back again.  It's been back and forth with us, hasn't it? --
Red Hammer

War and Peace -- Why? -- Clumsy Mutt

Darned straight I was trying to slay the Embezzling Scribe, and he was out to get ME,
too--we've got a long and bitter history. -- Julian
