                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DULLENS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
GRIM LAUGHTER, who pummelled THAT I DO SIR, to pocket 22 points.  Win some, lose 
some.  Speaking of which, GRIM LAUGHTER was winsome, after beating THAT I DO SIR and 
seeing him lose 21 points.  Now I can't insult ARROGANT BASTARD, as it 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 DULLENS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a 
charmed life!   
     And how sociable are DULLENS' warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed 
simile, I now bid DULLENS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Our congratulations to Nimble Dancer. -- Jorja and the Cardow Hunters

Hmm, you know an arena is in trouble when the Arenamaster has a day job....

Nimble Dancer -- Finally!  I'm delighted to see you go, glad for any help I've given
along the way. -- Grim Laughter
P.S.  Was it the rating, do you think?

Arrogant Bastard -- Yeah, beer in excess does that to some people. -- Blackbuck

Floydriffic -- Heck.  I didn't need that. -- Hailstones
P.S.  Maybe I should go destroy someone's crops.

The Beakster -- Truly, that's your name?  How... odd. -- Gray Bear

Snuffy the Kittycat.  At least I defeated it. -- Goldeneye
