                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Good things come to those who fight well, as ABOMINATION can attest, 
moving up by 1.  GLORY HOUNDS had cause to celebrate, after HAMMER got 19 points by 
beating TREMORS.  CICERO certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing 
to ASHUR and losing 13 points in the process!  Can you believe it?  HATCHET MAN 
apparently has better things to do as KOLACT's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  
Now I can't insult FLATLINERS, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new 
Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in KOLACT is 
taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of THE MOONDOGS, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of THE MOONDOGS found their efforts at combat frustrated as ABOMINATION 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, 
TOM could open up a fast food joint!  TOM found himself challenged by a warrior 20 
below:  TROG.  TROG of ABOMINATION kept hers wits as she subdued TOM.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure 
of writing Spyreports for KOLACT?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny 
Vir

Hatchet Man -- Good job on recovering your VACATED throne.  I was looking forward to
crossing swords with you.  Next time will be different. -- Wizards!

Defianx -- Thanks for all the skills.  I may have to challenge you for learns. --
(Fat Girl) Trog...or is it Thong?

Flyleaf -- It's much easier to fight if you're on your feet not lying on your a...err
back! -- Censorship

Tom -- That Platemail didn't seem to help to much. -- Caprica

A Veteran Mercenary.  Okay.  I can deal with this. -- Lunelle Merrin

Hammer -- I saw I was going to be matched with you, and I took a resolve:  not to
visualize myself as a nail.  It seems to have worked. -- Lia Hobern
P.S.  Actually, I was surprised, though once I managed to knock your weapon out of
your hands, things improved.

I, too, can handle the Veteran Mercenary.  If I have to.  He's a bit... sweaty-
smelling. -- Cresdene Arct

I gotta tell you, these Khalhums Dwarves are getting out of hand.  Acting like
they're big cheeses, when actually, they're just little curds. -- Ferrin Mondor
