                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon MALCORN, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for SILVAMERE, who pummelled AZAZEL, 
to pocket 26 points.  AZAZEL certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after 
losing to SILVAMERE and losing 24 points in the process!  STRADA found out being 
MALCORN's Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, receiving 2 challenges!  The arena 
was more crowded than usual this time, as HOMUNCULUS faced MALCORN's Duelmaster.  Now 
I can't insult HOMUNCULUS, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new 
Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in MALCORN is 
taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  As a confidence booster, HORRORSCAR 
challenged AVENGELINA, down 19 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your 
spare time, HORRORSCAR?  Next time HORRORSCAR walks with his head high remind him of 
the fight where he challenged down 19 points and lost to AVENGELINA.  VITAE found 
himself challenged by a warrior 23 below:  WENDIGO.  WENDIGO of DARK CREATION kept 
hers wits as she was defeated by VITAE.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Strada -- Go ahead, win the fight, take the title, or hold it, I guess, see if I
care!  I'm DONE with this stuff now.  Sure, being a forest warden has its dangers,
but they're different.  At least my enemies will be true enemies now, instead of just
other gladiators that I'd be glad to lift a stein with.  Ah...that'd be a heavy stein
that took two of us to lift, wouldn't it?  But think how much beer it would hold! --
Patterson Pine, rambling but who cares?

Silvamere -- A pretty name, I suppose, but pretty is as pretty does, and you, huh,
you're a skinny washed-out blonde, probably part Fratsfan!  Oh, gee, maybe I
shouldn't have said that?  I hear that a Shew would rather die than admit to being
part Fratsfan, something about an old war....  But maybe that was the choice your
several-times-great-grandmother was given, hmm?  Probably not your fault.  Of course,
you still look like a dishwater blonde and you're really mean, but...way it goes.  I
can be mean, too, and have been in the past, which is why I'm HERE in the arena.
Hmm.  Maybe we should go out together and find some even nastier people to beat up,
Fratsfans or Karnhorns for choice. -- Redbird
P.S.  We've all got the rambles today.

Angeltear -- I don't believe it, you know.  Angels never cry, they don't have to.
Nothing touches them.  Really depressing to contemplate, too--that there are angels,
and nothing touches them, and then there's US, ordinary people, and EVERYTHING
touches us.  Unfair, you know?  It bugs me. -- Mossrock
P.S.  Sometimes.

Boss -- I hate it when that happens.  I had my internal arrangements all SET, and
then you came along and scrambled everything.  I'll have it all to do over again,
because the Infirmarian never puts things back where they belong. -- Wind Rider

Avengelina -- Cool name, but why aren't you a bloodsworn or a dark creation with a
name like that?  Not that I mind!  A cute little babe with a cool name who's willing
to dally with me for minutes on end is pretty good.  I can work with this. -- Stump,
cautiously enthusiastic

Oh, gods, MAUL?  They're kidding, right? -- Patterson

Strada -- Well, there's grass, and then there's GRASS.  (wincing a little)  I think
that "bear-grass" partook more of the bear and less of the grass. -- Patterson

Boss -- Hey, you're TWO WHOLE INCHES shorter than me.  That makes you "short stuff"
in my book. -- Wind Rider

The Pie-Eyed Piper -- (snicker) -- Redbird
