                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of KALTOS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  SPORTS GREATS had cause 
to celebrate, after WOODS got 17 points by beating CLANK.  ELINDE GOSS certainly had 
a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to TWINK and losing 9 points in the 
process!  Can you believe it?  STAR ROD apparently has better things to do as KALTOS' 
Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a greater victory?  GRETZKY has taken 
his place as the top, as KALTOS' new Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen 
charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in KALTOS avoid THE MIDDLE WAY 5.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of PAPER MARIO, so did that sorry team shy from THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5 Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, JERI LOUGH is the most challenged warrior.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in KALTOS would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for KALTOS?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Elinde -- Like Helene, you belong to me.  But you both take so much effort that I
believe I am going to take a nap. -- Star Rod

Jeri -- A great battle between a pair of tiddly-winks! -- Twink

Helene -- I just don't have it anymore.  I need to go buy some shoes and drown my
sorrows. -- Bombette

Star Rod -- Gods, golem, graduate already!  We need to see a little new lubricating
fluid on the sands here. -- Elinde Goss, mostly fed up with distant family members
who show up and talk for HOURS about people I never heard of and don't miss

Twink -- I wonder what would happen if I sprayed a diluted pine-tar tincture on you?
It might at least dim that oppressive "twink twink" thing you've got going. -- Jeri
Lough, who had to listen to Elinde's distant cousins because they were camped right
THERE in the main room of the guildhouse

Bombette -- Ha!  Got your detonator wet, did you?  Well, there's been enough rain. --
Helene Juste

Well, why SHOULDN'T I lose to M. Chardinee?  He knows lots of stuff.  He's been
fighting for more than twenty years.  He's GOOD. -- Orverd Quill

Moon Child -- Ah, but the arena is no place for a child, is it? -- Gerdig Ibbins
P.S.  I'm not usually the "nice guy" type, but you bring it out in me.

Twink -- If you weren't a golem, it might be worth pursuing.  As it is...no. --
Helene Juste

Star Rod -- I know.  I guess that's why you're spoiled rotten, isn't it? -- Orverd
Quill

Rovalo d'Kormachi, formerly of Mordant -- Nah, the "low type" is YOU.  I can tell. --
Gerdig Ibbins
P.S.  After all, you're short.  That's what it MEANS to be low, right?

Wilbothe of Andor, Respectable Assassin -- It's the whole idea of assassination being
a feasible avenue of, ah, settling disputes that I can't stomach.  It cuts off all
other possibilities, very, you will pardon the phrase, "Dead End." -- Elinde Goss

Clank -- You make enough noise to wake the dead, boy. -- Lewis Jones, the Black Sheep
of the Famous Jones Brothers, non-robber of banks

Godsmack -- Ah, and the other hand now!  Excellent. -- Zarvol Blackhand the Blood-
drinker, Dangerous Criminal

Wrathchild -- Ho!  You think to come the haughty with me?  Useless. -- Zarvol
Blackhand the Blood-drinker

Overkill -- (whimper) -- Larsanthek of Kurukar and Fratsfa
P.S.  Hey, it's been a hard life since I was captured in childhood by the Fratsfans,
I NEED to whimper now and then.

Iron Maiden -- (wistful sigh)  Beautiful and cruel. -- Geroge Maloth, Captured Orc
but not a wild beast, you know

Orverd Quill -- You're an ass, man. -- M. Tolovi Chardinee
