                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon MALCORN, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  DARK CREATION?  Who?  STARBASE 5 is the top team 
these days, buddies!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a 
perceptive observation?) as FEELINGS can attest...  Good things come to those who 
fight well, as STARBASE 5 can attest, moving up by 1.  TRIPLE CROWN had cause to 
celebrate, after AFFIRMED got 18 points by beating XANE REAVER.  XANE REAVER 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to AFFIRMED and losing 
14 points in the process!  Well, Duelmaster MEAT GRINDER Bloodfeuded STARBASE 5's 
FIERCE TIGER.  Is a 16-3-0 good enough?  FIERCE TIGER found out that MALCORN isn't a 
democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in 
MALCORN is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it 
works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of TRIPLE CROWN, alone and unchallenged.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, DARK CREATION scurried away from TRIPLE CROWN.  
Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and PATTERSON PINE is it 
right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't GREENWARDENS proud!  My love of complete 
Spyreports dictates that I note the mismatched fight, INDEMOS and PATTERSON PINE.  
Are STARBASE 5 unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I thought INDEMOS showed great 
skill and promise when he bested PATTERSON PINE.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Charity is 
unknown in MALCORN, and rightly so.  MEAT MARKET exacted their revenge against 
STARBASE 5.  Word has it WEST COAST WARRIORS is planning on terminating more 
GREENWARDENS members, if they have so little to fear from revenge...  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in MALCORN is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Tree Shadow -- Perhaps.  But what happens to you after the sun goes down? -- Strada

Whirlaway -- Thank you for accepting the challenge.  I hope you don't mind if we go
one more round.  Just to see if this is luck.  After that, I will stop. -- Forever

Cleaver -- I bet you weren't expecting that!?  Well, neither was I! -- Strada

Jessalin -- That was fun, but shouldn't you be off playing with dolls or something?

Little Puppet -- I am so quick, sometimes I surprise myself! -- The Count

All -- Now that's what I'm talkin' about, boys!  Starbase 5 going undefeated last
turn.  It seems that they do their best when the universe is in harmony.  Now let's
drink up at the old pub cause we're buyin!  Oh and, Barmaid!, Keep em' coming!
Nobody's left with an empty mug! -- Zeus

Stir Fry -- Boy, What was your manager thinking?  He must really hate you. -- F.
Tiger

It's a little too quiet around here.  Wonder where everyone is?  Wait, let me listen
for a second....  Yup, just what I thought, nothing but crickets and skeeters.

Malice -- Yep, it worked.  I felt that for you. -- Hob L. D'Hoy

Indemos -- Your concentration on certain parts of my body was very, um, it was
personal, and I didn't like it.  How about if you don't DO that again. -- Jessalin

Puppet -- (accusingly)  You didn't LEARN anything.  That's the whole idea here. --
Patterson Pine

Revanent -- That's, hmm, like a mill-end or something, with lots of threads coming
loose.  Yeah, I knew that.  But I never was much for sewing. -- Tree Shadow

Hellwraith -- Big guy, aren't you? -- Periwinkle

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.

3 May 2006
All -- I've seen what's on the forum.  So I'm prey, am I, Max.  You and all your
devious buddies will become my prey, even those I thought okay.  I don't have to
explain anything I do, much like yourselves so bring it on.  Feel free to come over
to 31 for a thrashing.  Oh, by the way, I am also in a new alliance.  They tend to
share my sentiments about the VC.  If they follow me or not, we will see; I'm not at
liberty to talk for them.  The VC may be on their last stand!!!! -- Blackstorm
