                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of WILLAF.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
CRICKET, who pummelled STINGING NETTLE, to pocket 10 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, CRICKET was winsome, after beating STINGING NETTLE and seeing him 
lose 6 points.  Now I can't insult ZIGADENUS, as he has gloriously dueled to the top. 
Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who's the team 
that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt 
to me.   
     And how sociable are WILLAF's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some nasty 
rumors, the guys in PUNNY AMINALS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need 
to avoid 'em.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, GOLDEN GLADIATORS scurried 
away from PUNNY AMINALS.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, CRICKET could 
open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Citizens of WILLAF, 
be sure to settle your debts with DOROBO of YAMABUSHI.  He's relocating to the Dark 
Arena and has other things on his mind!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it 
slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in WILLAF is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for WILLAF?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Marey, Marey, Marey!  You stripped me of all I have.  Now I am poor.  (sigh) -- Gold
Cache

Dorobo -- You like me!  You really like me!?  Thank you for the challenge with all
that massive experience.  It was cool leaving you panting on the arena floor.  It
was! -- Goldbrick

Cricket of Legends, and Stinging Nettle of Maximum Results -- Congratulations on your
Lord Protectorships.  Well done and well deserved. -- Midas, Golden Gladiators

Budokumo -- Another congrats at you, Duelmaster.  Kudos. -- Midas

Baabra -- Sink????!  And to think I liked you? -- Goldbrick

Cricket -- Hmm, graduation must be contagious!  I am graduating, you fight me, and
now you are graduating.  Remarkable.  I don't know if there's any vaccine for this.
-- Ondo Fleur

Zigadenus -- Well, heck.  Damn.  Stronger words, even, if you can think of some. --
Ghost of Beau Ramn
P.S.  I thought of some, but I couldn't get the medium to transmit them.  Damned
mealy-mouthed--

(sound of ectoplasm getting sucked back out of the world of manifestation)

The Khalhums Dwarf?  Wel, um, I'm sure he's a fine fellow, if somewhat hairy.  Three
skills!  I like that.  And the win, of course. -- Silvia Minno

Gold Cache -- I think I'll cash in on that!  Many thanks. -- Marey D'Nuit

And a Captured Orc to round off the day. -- Baabra Lammont

Goldbrick -- Ah... thanks, I guess. -- Baabra Lammont
P.S.  Just so you know, I won't loan you any money.

Our congratulations to Cricket and Stinging Nettle. -- Jorja and the Punny Animals

Budo Kumo -- It seems your defense is better than my offense.  So I go to the Isle 0-
2 vs TP.  Truly, scum fits your kind!  However... if I had more tiem... -- Stinging
Nettle

Punny Animals -- Hope your replacement for Beau Ramn can fight as well.  And your
revenge not so sweet for you.  Having two quality bashers leave your stable on the
same turn could bite!  Never had much luck with that style.  *holdin his glass up* --
Coyote
