                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for 100%, who pummelled GERBENT, 
to pocket 14 points.  LRB certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after 
losing to TIPAR KUROO and losing 7 points in the process!  CHICHI-HOOEY found out 
that TOBIR 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...   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
100% of NO-HALF STEPPING sends GERBENT of THE DOGHOUSE goes to the Weary Warrior's 
Retirement Home.  TOBIR has no place for weaklings!  Ask not for whom the sword 
slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for TOBIR?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

100% -- If you say so, but it doesn't look like so much to me.  I'd take it for maybe
55%. -- Tipar Kuroo

Lovelife -- No, sorry, that's a human thing.  Dogs don't do that kind of stuff.
"Lovelife..."  Nope. -- Scruff
P.S.  Unless you want to consider our love for our people, who don't always deserve
it, but hey, those are the ones who need it the most.

Strong Arm Steady -- Well... steady is a good beginning, but there has to be more.
For instance, the dealing of blows in return.  Not that I MINDED being the only one
striking out and not getting hit, but seriously, that was ridiculous. -- Echanosarah
P.S.  And my aim was rotten.  Sorry about that.  I'm working on it, but I need a LOT
more work.

Showstopper -- Ha!  Laugh if you want to, see if *I* care! -- Chichi-Hooey
P.S.  Did I have this war flail before, or is it new?  I'm sure it wasn't singing in
E before, I would have chosen C.  Or maybe D.

That merchant is not honest.  Anyone could tell.  He's a cat! -- Gerbent
P.S.  Not that I have anything against cats.  Some of my best friends are cats.  But
they're sneaky.

Oh, gods, Born to Scum.  Low/low.  I just NEW it. -- Scruff, reading over Chichi's
graduation notice
P.S.  Great axe?  You are kidding me!

Scruff -- I just don't like to waste my efforts, is all.  That isn't scumming, that's
being practical. -- Lord Protector Chichi-Hooey

Art Folle Dodger -- Well, you've persecuted an innocent golden-haired daughter, for a
start!  All those, what do they call them, "mash notes"?  She feels quite STALKED by
your attentions.  You should back off. -- Gerbent, protector of golden-haired
daughters everywhere

Timmins -- Oh.  Well, I did smell something that was off, but I haven't trained for
that kind of sniffing.  Sorry. -- Scruff

M. Ziriifth Chardinee -- Like I care! -- Lord Protector Chichi-Hooey

Lrb -- I will send the Kali Flower to GET you! -- Darias Le Plume, Trustworthy Scribe

Gerbent -- You will have to learn the meaning of the property line, and the
punishment due to tresspassers, someday.  Why not start now?  It will hurt you less.
-- Gordos Harsinell, Honest Merchant who does not appreciate having his laundry
dragged off the line

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
