                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive 
observation?) as ASSASSIN NATION can attest...  Say what you will about blind luck 
and dirty fighting, but LA PENTARCHIE will tell you 207-166-4 is nothing to laugh 
at...  LA PENTARCHIE had cause to celebrate, after V.BALTIMORE-'W.BALT got 18 points 
by beating RICHARDTHELIONHEART.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 16 points to V.BALTIMORE-'W.BALT.  (Discrete enough, 
RICHARDTHELIONHEART?) Well, Duelmaster INOCHI challenged CHAMPIONS OF STEEL's 
NYTEMAIR.  Is a 11-1-0 good enough?  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by NYTEMAIR, of CHAMPIONS OF STEEL, who despite a 13-8-1 couldn't 
overcome ARKERS' Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls 
and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of LA PENTARCHIE, alone and unchallenged.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, X-FORCE scurried away from LA PENTARCHIE.  
Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, CHIANA could open up a fast food joint!  
Do my ears deceive me?  ELIXIR (outclassed by 31 points) challenged TIEN, in what 
promises to be a fight.(!) Like a mother cat batting her overly rambunctious kitten 
into submission, TIEN quashed ELIXIR.  But ELIXIR, if at first you don't succeed...   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  LIN MINMEI of YAKUZA sends FOUL of ASSASSIN NATION goes to the Weary Warrior's 
Retirement Home.  ARKERS has no place for weaklings!  Congratulations, LURID.  The 
manager of ENTENTER should have sent OVERDRIVE to the Dark Arena for having a 6-5-0 
long ago.  Justice was served as ALAIN DRAGOON fought ROCK GLAS HUT FUN in bloodfeud. 
Well done, LA PENTARCHIE!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate 
long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARKERS is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ARKERS 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Congratulations to Duelmaster Inochi, who fought the good fight and showed Tom
Sawyer "what for". Salute. -- Curator

Frenchies -- Am I to understand that after next turn we are beginning a friendly
"competition"?  La Pentarchie and Blackstorm are going to try to put it to "the old
man"?  I will put away my walking cane, get out the geritol, and take an aspirin (at
least one) a day, in preparation.  Are you sure it needs to be 12 turns long?  A
whole year? What if this old guy can't last that long--the grim reaper awaits? I
think Mr. Zee and his gladiators will help me out.  Now, be gentle on your elders.
-- Curator

Dart -- I did not really think I had enough to get that done.  A salute to your
ability. -- Helen Of Troy

Feordis Ink -- You are still above me?  You know what that means, don't you? -- Lady
Macbeth

Overdrive -- I think it was me, that was.  You forgot to turn on your engine. --
Hammurabi

Zinger -- Bah.  Zippety, no Zip.  Thank goodness for ZZZZ's. -- Mr. Zee

What?  A contest?  I'm always having to take care of you, Curator. -- Mr. Zee

Max -- I can sympathize with lateness.  I think my turn 205 ads were for turn 203.
My mail gets real bad December to the end of January. -- Blackstorm

Ymir -- Hey pal!  I've come back to Crysalis to see you. -- Chaos W.
P.S.  With all those ratings you should whip me for sure!

Inochi -- Indeed, a truly awesome warrior.  I've got to go to the magic forest and
get more nightmare dust.  I ran out again. -- Nytemair

Floyd Rose -- That stung. -- Outlaw

Dazzler -- Caught me on a bad day.  Would you believe 1-7-7?  The boss forgot a
zero. -- Chaos Inv.

Sunfire -- That was rude!  But that's how it goes sometimes.  My bud C.I. is trying
to meet up with you.  Hope he can get you again. -- Saint Seiya

Fat Cat Yummy -- ?  Are you a cat or a cat eater?  I can find you a whole bunch.  My
friend Seiya has all kinds. -- Yor Dethkall

HAIL to all our new graduates and Hail to our undefeated Duelmaster. -- Blackstorm
P.S.  An old friend dropped by 106.

Tom -- Let me paint fences and go fishing with you! -- Aujard

Damn orcs, always bullying.... -- Le Pentarque

Hey Ed., I'm still not The Pentalque, but Le Pentarque!

     Heck, I thought I'd fixed that.  This time I really have fixed it! -- The
     Saint, somewhat distracted keeper of lists

Always glad to help Richard. -- Alain

Feordisink -- Gross works as long as I win. -- Elixir

Helen of Troy -- First Richard and now you.  I think my head is going to swell.  I
just need to stay away from that damn tom! -- Dart

V. Baltimore -- That was way too close.  Good fight. -- Dazzler

Aujard -- I don't think I was ready for you. -- Sunfire

Kiseru -- That turned out better than I thought it would. -- Elixir

Nytemair -- One down, three to go! -- Atlas

Morg Potts -- Just an unlucky matchup for you....  Nothing much else that you can
say about that. -- Lurid

Lin Minmei -- I think you got lucky on that fight.  Let's try that again. -- Foul

Lin Minmei -- Ummm..ok.... -- Ghab/Assassin Nation

Marshmallow -- That was quite a workout.  Ghab tells me I don't have to hit the
weights this month, so thanks! -- Spew

Foul -- Great fight.  I don't think I will be as lucky next time you bloodfeud. --
Lin

Grim -- Ahhh...closer this time. -- Sohei

Tom Sawyer -- I hope one of us graduates soon.  Too many of your style in
challenging range. -- Inochi

Alain Dragoon -- FIVE skills?  Thank you very much! -- Jernig Mars

Lady Macbeth -- I expected you to come out with a couple of daggers.  (wincing)  My
mistake! -- Feordis Ink
P.S.  I bet your "other half" finds you a real handful.

Zippety -- Doo-dah. -- Holga Kobb
P.S.  Hey, so I'm not couth.  Sue me.

Me Cheat U Lose -- Uh...does that mean I can complain to the Commission about the
loss? -- Imber Lack

Lurid -- That should be my line.  I mean, I'm the orc here. -- Morg Potts

Hammurabi -- Of course I have a collection!  (blushing a little)  Snuff bottles.
Can't pass 'em up. -- Jernig Mars

Kiseru -- On the Middle Way, what we mostly learn is how to teach. -- Imber Lack

Ed. -- I suppose that's possible.  Sensei Jan, what say you?  Are you the Y
Gladiators? -- Morg Potts
