                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JHELUM, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at TOLBINS HIVE C left the arena dejected, 
after being kicked out of the top spot by DEVIATION.  Good show!  Those betting on 
DEALER'S WORLD lost their shirt, as DEALER'S WORLD lost their fighting abilities:  
0-0-0.  Practice pays for DRONE C5, who pummelled RAJ FENRIS, to pocket 16 points.  
SABER certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to DELICATE 
DELILAH and losing 14 points in the process!  M. CHARDINEE 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!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in ZOMBIE SQUADS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, DEVIATION scurried away from ZOMBIE 
SQUADS.  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good 
oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, MIKE MCCREADY is the most challenged warrior.  As a 
confidence booster, PIMP POTENTIAL challenged MIKE MCCREADY, down 20 points.  Do you 
also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, PIMP POTENTIAL?  PIMP POTENTIAL 
defeated MIKE MCCREADY with a point difference of 20.  So this is what JHELUM calls a 
duel.  This will make an interesting tale.  Take heed JHELUM, of the unprincipled 
action of QUEEN OF COOL.  By challenging SUN TREE, 33 points below her, QUEEN OF COOL 
besmirches the noble art of dueling.  QUEEN OF COOL won victory over SUN TREE.  The 
whole thing leaves a bitter memory.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Those who owe ICE ICE BABY of ONE HIT WONDERS money and had written him off, 
take note:  he'S BACK FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
JHELUM would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of 
writing Spyreports for JHELUM?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Six to the Dark Arena?  Dare we guess... preparation for Rookies at the tournament?
Well, good luck, guys, you're going to need it.  People die as Rookies in
tournaments. -- Sun Tree

Three-two this time!  Amazing.  We'll take it.  And not a ONE of those victories was
over a standby. -- Raj Fenris

And a lot of those victories looked to ME--and the losses as well--to involve tourney
warriors getting ready.  Well, good cess to 'em! -- Rosie Rivetter
