                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, 
observe MOMMY DEAREST.  Last week they got 1-3-0 to drop by 5!  Nothing works for a 
team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as SUPERIOR FORCES ZC3 
can attest...  KIRKWOOD 1 posted a nice gain, to come in 7th.  Everybody loves a 
winner...  KIRKWOOD 1 had cause to celebrate, after PS-SHORT SPOKE got 25 points by 
beating UTTERLY LARGE (LU).  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, PS-SHORT SPOKE 
was winsome, after beating UTTERLY LARGE (LU) and seeing her lose 20 points.  STRIKE 
OUT found out that DULLENS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in DULLENS is using psychics to predict wins.  
They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in PERFECTION QUEST 13 are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 
'em.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, KIRKWOOD 1 scurried away from 
PERFECTION QUEST 13.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and MR 
PERRY TOTAL is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't CON ZAL CON proud!  
Take heed DULLENS, of the unprincipled action of BASIC AZZWHUPIN.  By challenging 
BA-RNEY, 26 points below it, BASIC AZZWHUPIN besmirches the noble art of dueling.  
Yes, Virginia, sometimes the little guy wins, as BA-RNEY proved, beating 26 point 
higher BASIC AZZWHUPIN.  As a confidence booster, AB-DOMINIZER challenged AIMED - 
FELINE, down 19 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, 
AB-DOMINIZER?  AB-DOMINIZER will have to start challenging legless old maids next, as 
he was beat by AIMED - FELINE.  Good show, AIMED - FELINE!  WALL OF FELINE found 
himself challenged by a warrior 21 below:  WANTON SLAUGHTER.  WANTON SLAUGHTER of 
PERFECTION QUEST 13 kept his wits as he was subdued by WALL OF FELINE.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Citizens of DULLENS, be sure to settle your debts with ST-MEATLOAF of FORCE OF FIVE.  
He's relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on his mind!  Justice was 
served as TOT AL PARRI fought BRUTAL BASHER in bloodfeud.  Well done, CON ZAL CON!  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
