                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ARUAK CITY, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, 
maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to BULLDOGS.  Practice pays 
for AMBER ANTEATER, who pummelled PAIR-O-SEVENS, to pocket 19 points.  Win some, lose 
some.  Speaking of which, AMBER ANTEATER was winsome, after beating PAIR-O-SEVENS and 
seeing him lose 15 points.  You could cut the tension with a scimitar as PINK 
PORPOISE of ANIMAL FARM met the Duelmaster.  PINK PORPOISE found out that ARUAK CITY 
isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the 
warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got 
a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are ARUAK CITY's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in ARUAK CITY avoid IMMORTALS.  
As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of CHAOS CARNIVAL, so did that 
sorry team shy from IMMORTALS Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and TANGERINE 
TURTLE is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't ANIMAL FARM proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  More than one 
waitress at The Bulldog Inn was spilling more drinks than usual last week, as PINK 
CHEEKS' early demise became known.  What will COLORIFIC do???  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Like a 
mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ARUAK CITY farewell-- Novgorodny 
Vir

Wrathmen -- Thanks.  Your recognition of us was well-deserved.  I see you recognize
true greatness. -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Hitchhikers!  What!?  That wimp Fenchurch stole a win from me!  Me?  Cheat!  Cheat, I
say!  Dirty, rotten, Commission-briber! -- Green With Envy, Proud Colorific

Keisha -- I did not like it one bit, but you fought the best.  Kudos.  You are sooooo
cute.  How about dinner tomorrow night?  And breakfast the following morning? (wink)
-- Pale Face, Proud Colorific

Pale Face -- What kind of talk is that?!  You are a Colorific!  Any more of that and
you are on the road to excommunication.  You hear? -- Purple People Eater, Proud
Colorific Manager

Pink Cheeks -- Nice win!  Great kill!  Yu da man!  (Oops, yu da babe!) -- Purple
People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

M. Chardinee -- Thanks for being there.  Both of us are perfectly willing to beat up
on cannon-fodder.  It felt GOOD! -- Red-Eye and Yellow Belly, Proud Colorifics

Colorifics -- Not great!  A mere 3-2-1!  That weasel Green With Envy and the pimp
Pale Face did not do their jobs.  Give them a kick in the rump for me. -- Purple
People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

     Or paint them purple and eat them.

Fenchurch and The Hitchhikers -- Congratulations!  Great Duelmaster battle and win.
It is terrific to have an honorable champ.  Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog
Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

The Herquloids -- We Bulldogs were saddened to see the death of Philburtus by Pink
Cheeks of Colorific's hand.  Those nasty Colorifics may be loud-mouthed, but I know
in their hearts they did not desire your warrior's death.  May Philburtus fight well
in That Great Arena In The Sky. -- Kennelworth and The Bulldogs

NY State Of Mind -- It was with an ill northern wind and the stench off the Hudson
that you blew by me.  I don't know whether to congratulate you or to tell you to
clean up that state.  I choose the former. -- Cow Bell

Smarg Darkblade -- I guess you were impervious to my weapons.  I salute your win. --
Mad Cow Disease (getting more potent injections for The Face)

Nobody You Knew -- I'm glad. -- Purple Poodle

Attaboy -- Well, attaboy to ya!  I sensed a "Wham, bam, thank you m'am" sort of aura
about you.  Be gentle, okay? -- Udder delight

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Heart And Soul Of Andoria awaits. -- Kennelworth

Happy New Year to all from all of us here at The Bulldog stable. -- Kennelworth

Avast ye critters -- Ye bea 3-1!  Yo ho ho.  Beat them Colorwhatevers.  Aye. -- Mino

Hotback Desatio -- I treated you like an ant.  I like hot lunches.  (wink) -- Amber
Anteater

Polyester -- You were too much for me.  Was that kevlar you were wearing, or was it
really polyester? -- Claret Crawdad

Pair-O-Sevens -- Thanks for the challenge.  Now I have all your chips! -- Pink
Porpoise

Hilda -- You caught me at my very best.  I thought, for a moment there, that you were
going to peel me, but my instincts took over. -- Tangerine Turtle

The Animal Farm spy network as been able to discern the following information about
Red-Eye of Colorifics as he moves on to graduation:
12(+1)-13(+1)-15-17(+1)-17(+1)-3-11 +2 attack, +1 parry Waste
from Good Dmg/Normal Endu to Great/Good
Adexes in Init, Attack, Parry
Skill Learn Rate: 1.54
It appears that he was very poorly managed by Purple People Eater, but, then, What is
new? -- The Animal Farm Publicist

Purple Poodle -- As to the warriors I've been sending after you, I was obviously
trying to use the style advantage--you have proven yourself a true oak!  While I
won't stop looking for ways to beat you, I must give credit where it's due.  And pay
little heed to Dark Jester's diatribe; I expect he enjoys the 'rivalry' just as much
as do you. -- Uncle Nurgle

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
families. -- Gentleben (Sunset-21, Morya-28, Arvat-32 and Talahya-100)
