                                      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 
SHOCK TOP, who pummelled THE LIBRARIAN, to pocket 14 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, SHOCK TOP was winsome, after beating THE LIBRARIAN and seeing her 
lose 6 points.  ADELITA found out that DULLENS 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 DULLENS' warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some nasty 
rumors, the guys in MMM BEER! are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to 
avoid 'em.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of ARCANE ROYALTY, so 
did that sorry team shy from MMM BEER!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, GRAY BEAR is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
DULLENS would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything compare 
to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for DULLENS?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Three-two this time, and only one standby.  Not a bad showing for us, or even for a
barely-there arena.  I'm duelmaster again, not for any reason I can see.  Right, I
won the fight, but I don't see why I did that, you know?  It isn't like I was using
some bold new strategy.  I guess Adelita (a cute little thing, I must say) was having
an off day.  That happens. -- Goldeneye

I mauled a Drunken Guardsman, is there a prize for that? -- Gray Bear

The Librarian -- But... I did MEAN to bring back the books on time.  I was only a
couple of days late. -- Mist on Grass

Toxic Sludge -- Yuck. -- Starsinger

Red Stripe -- More like a red carpet, and I walked right across it. -- Fallenrock
