                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  TL;DR?  Who?  DOGS OF WAR is the top team 
these days, buddies!  DOGS OF WAR had cause to celebrate, after BLIND BETSY got 13 
points by beating CONVICTED THIEF.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, GERMAINE 
SHEPPARD was winsome, after beating DA VINCI CODE and seeing him lose 4 points.  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 taking speech lessons to try to 
bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are JHELUM's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Never one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see DOGS OF 
WAR retaliate against TL;DR in bloodfeud!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the 
match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in JHELUM is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Sorry, January Friends.  I would have been here for your bloodfeud, but... some books
are not meant to be read, I guess. -- Ghost of Julian

Ironside -- I must have passed some kind of threshold, if my loss to you was
"unbelievable."  Good!  And I note that the fans, at least, rated me high.  What can
I say, I'm good. -- Germaine Sheppard
P.S.  Skills would've been good, though.

Da Vinci Code -- There are very few codes that can't be broken by a hammer applied
with force and precision. -- Red Hammer, ever the darling of the fans

Crime and Punishment -- You're a bit of a fool, but we knew that. -- Mat'ari
P.S.  I do like a one-shotter, when I'm doing the shotting.  Wastes no time, and
doesn't mess up my nails.

Kung-Fu?  Ridiculous. -- Cusster

Wheel of Time -- CRUSHED under the wheel! -- Ghost of Julian

18 March 11
All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
