                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  THE MIDDLE WAY 5 posted a nice gain, to come 
in 2nd.  Everybody loves a winner...  JAMES BONDAGE had cause to celebrate, after MS 
GOODBODY got 16 points by beating KHALHUMS DWARF.  MAY DAY certainly had a baffled 
expression on hers face, after losing to LEORA NOEVAL and losing 5 points in the 
process!  Well, Duelmaster RAVEN challenged TECHNOLOGY's SONNY.  Is a 8-1-1 good 
enough?  SONNY found out that KALTOS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to 
be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in KALTOS is taking speech lessons to try 
to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are KALTOS' warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the warriors 
of THE MIDDLE WAY 5 should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team... 
The warriors of THE MIDDLE WAY 5 found their efforts at combat frustrated as JAMES 
BONDAGE apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were 
horses, MECHANON could open up a fast food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in KALTOS would I avoid!   
     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.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid KALTOS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Ms Goodbody -- I keep confusing you with chocolate.  Mr Goodbar, you know.  I'd like
chocolate better. -- Gidget Imer

A brisk half-a-round with the Veteran Mercenary, a win, and off to retirement.  Life

M. Chardinee.  Bah.  One-shot.  Well, two, but they were so close together in time
and space it was almost like one. -- Irvina Korl

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
