                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TRANSEL.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at THE 
DIRECTORS left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by GOLDEN 
DAWN.  Good show!  THE DIRECTORS had cause to celebrate, after JOHN HUSTON got 9 
points by beating NOT-A-NUT JONES.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 8 points to JOHN HUSTON.  (Discrete enough, NOT-A-NUT 
JONES?) ACOLYTE 1 successfully staved off a grab for the roses by SIR RENARD D'KENSIS 
of TRANSEL.  Does TRANSEL have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who's the 
team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR 
stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     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.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid TRANSEL farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Alucard -- Who are you?  Where did you come from?  You LAUGHED.  I hate it when
people do that. -- Happy Harriet, not happy today

Acolyte 1 -- How can you be duelmaster?  You're just a FLUNKY. -- Normal Nan
P.S.  Okay, a mean, nasty, hard-fighting flunky, but still.

P.S.  I showed you that time.

Austin Nordell -- We still don't like you, but we still don't like other people even
more.  You can go on losing to us, we don't mind. -- Eve and Emma

All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
