                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for ZULOR, who pummelled MAINE 
COON, to pocket 23 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, ZULOR was 
winsome, after beating MAINE COON and seeing him lose 22 points.  Duelmaster CAT-FU 
from ARENA FELINES is going for the gold, as he Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's 
BANDIT PRINCE.  Ooh, the excitement!  The crowds were amazed this turn, as BANDIT 
PRINCE killed the Duelmaster, CAT-FU, leaving ARENA FELINES in mourning.  The 
audience got their money's worth, as they witnessed TRUE BLUE attain the throne at 
the cost of CAT-FU's life!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls 
and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  If challenges were horses, TRUE BLUE could open 
up a fast food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Perhaps PHILANTHROPISTS II's manager was intending to send SHAMAHAMADI to the 
Dark Arena in the first place, seeing as how bloodfeud has nearly expired.  Never one 
to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see BLUE MOON retaliate against 
ARENA FELINES in bloodfeud!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must 
needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Maine Coon -- I should have expected that from you.  Cats are always catching and
eating shrews, aren't they?  Ugh, horrid thought, but I suppose I don't mind now. --
Ghost of Blue Shrew, bones being crunched

Boo Boo Kitty -- Bad cat!  Bad! -- Blue Blotto
P.S.  There are some things I won't blot up.  Just forget it.

Me-Ouch -- I taught you that?  (disgruntled and offended look)  You're a pig.  A
skill-hogging offense to furryhood. -- Zulor the disgusted

The Fratsfa Slave is pathetic. -- True Blue
P.S.  Even though he's tall and sort of blond.
P.P.S.  Only sort of blond, though, so I guess he isn't REALLY a Fratsfan.  Maybe a
real Fratsfan would be more fun.

What have I done to be punished by the Dangerous Criminal?  Why me? -- Ultorino

Cat-Fu -- Well...congratulations. -- we at the Blue Moon

Blue Shrew -- You see now the penalty for speaking slightingly of someone with my
connections! -- Mackobin, Userous Merchant

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
