                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TOBIR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
NORIX, who pummelled FILIBUSTER, to pocket 26 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking 
of which, NORIX was winsome, after beating FILIBUSTER and seeing him lose 18 points.  
HOCK found out being TOBIR's Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, receiving 2 
challenges!  You could cut the tension with a scimitar as FANTASSIN of F WORDS met 
the Duelmaster.  FANTASSIN found out that TOBIR isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be 
the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns 
last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in TOBIR avoid THE DEATH SQUAD.  The warriors of THE DEATH SQUAD 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as ZOMBIE SQUAD apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.   
     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.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Okay, this time we salute the properly labeled tourney participants. -- Jorja and the
Doghouse pack

Timmy -- I should've known better than to let you do "rope tricks" with me. -- Lasso

Crab Man -- They tell me humans eat crabs.  Darned if I can figure why.  The shell is
too much trouble. -- Doggo
P.S.  But humans are strange.  Everydog knows that.

The Khalhums Dwarf is hairy, but only for a human.  He's no dog. -- Bigfoots
P.S.  A dwarf is more of a human than he isn't, you know.  Just short and hairy.

I watched M. Chardinee closely, and when the time came, I BIT him. -- The Watch Dog
P.S.  Sometimes a dog's gotta do what a dog's gotta do.

That "Fratsfan Noble" is just a fancy CAT.  I guess I took care of HIM. -- Harry Mutt
