                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JHELUM, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  COLLEGE RADIO #4 had cause to celebrate, after KID 
KOALA got 20 points by beating BLIND BETSY.  BLIND BETSY certainly had a baffled 
expression on hers face, after losing to KID KOALA and losing 15 points in the 
process!  Now I can't insult CUSSTER, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh 
great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who's the team that's 
been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me. 
     So much to report, so little time!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, WARBURTON is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     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.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid JHELUM farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Da Vinci Code -- I could have endured being killed by you, it would not, was not the
first time I've died in the arena.  But did you have to go through all that
"symbolic" rigamarole?  Stripping me naked right out there in public, drawing circles
around me in the sand, all that nonsense?  It's all MEANINGLESS, don't you
understand?  If you don't invoke the Great Ghu, it doesn't mean a THING. -- M.

Kulbade Chardinee
P.S.  Well, except that you're duelmaster, but you could have done THAT with a simple
victory.

Crime and Punishment -- I enjoyed that.  You're the crime, and I'm the punishment.
Works for me. -- Cusster

The Ambitious Guard is amusing, but only up to a point. -- Blind Betsy

That Potter Saga -- I wouldn't touch you with a ten-foot pole, unless it had a
spearhead on the business end. -- Warburton

Side Effects -- Moving sideways is my specialty. -- Dawe Gonnit

Milwaukee -- From the tourney, right? -- Fenris Khan
