                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  FOREIGN LEGION had cause to celebrate, after ITALIAN STALLION got 14 
points by beating SCRUFF.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 11 points to GRUNT 3.  (Discrete enough, CLOWN?) What can 
be a greater victory?  OPUNTIA has taken hers place as the top, as TOBIR's new 
Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in TOBIR is using psychics to predict wins.  They 
lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Sober up, young warriors, and take note of LEO POWERS' fate!  100% of NO-HALF 
STEPPING handily did him in.  Experience counts for something on TOBIR's sands.  A 
moment of silence for LEO POWERS, who died an untimely death at the hands of 100%.  
In the spirit of revenge, we call upon MEDAL OF HONOR A2 to act!  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in TOBIR is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  TOBIR, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
The Victory Tavern.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

"The time for the fight has come."  And I'm sure we were all waiting eagerly for
that.  Finally!  What is it with bands and marching teams that they are so reluctant
to pack it in and let someone else have the stage? -- Scruff, speaking for the
Doghouse crew

Showstopper -- Don't DO that!  The Show Must Go On.  Everyone knows that, even me. --
Scruff
P.S.  That was a good touch, the sweat blurring your vision and all.
P.P.S.  What WAS it with all that jumping around at the end of the second minute,
anyway?  You looked like you had ants in your pants and they were all biting at once.
You wore yourself out, leaped to the left, shifted back and forth, rushed to my weak
side, rushed to my weak side again (I don't have one, that's why you couldn't find
it), leaped to the left, leaped to the left again, moved in circles around me, leaped
to your right, rushed to my weak side, shifted back and forth, and then backed away
breathing heavily.  No surprise in that last!

Fake Phone Number -- What other kind could there be?  No phones here in Tobir.
Although I've heard that there are phone BOOTHS in some towns, for people who need a
public place to change clothes.  Really weird people.  Hmm.  Maybe those booths have
numbers, and you give the number of one you never use.  Yeah, that might explain it.
-- Echanosarah

$2 a Gallon Gas -- We all wish!  Put up a price like that, and the tanks would be
drained in a morning. -- Tipar Kuroo
P.S.  Oh, heck, it was my turn this time to do the "way to antsy" bit.  Back and
forth, right, weak side, left, fatigued arms, left, weary arms, forward!  No wonder I
lost.  Maybe I need a strategy change.

Grunt 4 -- (bewildered look)  I couldn't figure out what you were trying to tell me
to do.  Speak more clearly, please?  I'll wag my tail and lick your hand if you do.
-- Whole Mutt

Frank Ono -- Oh, no!  I got a thorn in my paw, and I just couldn't keep it up. --
Ginkor

Dacio Torranz, Ambitious Guard -- Why, what a nice thing to say!  But there are other
ways to do it.  Come around to the guildhouse sometime and just ask! -- Echanosarah

Tipar Kuroo -- "Gave you a cold grue"?  Phbbt! -- Timmins, Cheerful and Bellicose Fan

100% -- See if I ever let YOU in my store! -- Gordos Harsinell, Honest Merchant
