                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon WILLAF, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  REALLY? had cause to celebrate, after TINY DANCER got 
16 points by beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  DEE NILE certainly had a baffled expression 
on hers face, after losing to KUNG-FU MASTER and losing 14 points in the process!  
Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by RIPLEY BYRD, of PUNNY 
AMINALS, who despite a 14-17-0 couldn't overcome WILLAF's Number 1.  So who was the 
warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got 
a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are WILLAF's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in WILLAF avoid MAXIMUM RESULTS. 
As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of GOLDEN GLADIATORS, so did that 
sorry team shy from MAXIMUM RESULTS Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, HORUS MANN is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Never one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see REALLY? 
retaliate against PUNNY AMINALS in bloodfeud!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the 
match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in WILLAF is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
WILLAF?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Punny Aminals -- Look at that BIG point gain!  Jeez!  My Gladiators are avoiding, for
sure. -- Midas

Buckets Of Pain of Blood On The Tracks -- Gold Futures definitely wants to win, but
not THAT.  He apologizes deeply for the kill.  It was not intentional. -- Midas of
Golden Gladiators

39-13.  John Dere, no wonder you beat up on me and devalue me.  You have me out-Fed
by triplicate.  The fate of the MUGs. -- Good Dubloon

Rypley -- That felt......................... As Good As Gold

Horus Mann -- I think you found the chink in my armor.  (Oh, my!  Am I in trouble for
saying that?!) -- Goldplated

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Midas and The Golden Gladiators

Midas -- A bit odd of a welcome, but a welcome none the less.  Thank you. -- Dr.
Grimley

Good as Gold -- If you really WERE, you would let ME win for a change. -- Ripley Byrd

Goldplated -- Solid would be better. -- Horus Mann

The Kung-Fu Master could not deny my superiority. -- Dee Nile

Gold Dubloon -- Well, hel-LOOO, aren't you the charmer!  I've always been fascinated
by you cat men. -- John Dere

I Don't Know and Dr. Grimley -- Sorry about that.  It was unintentional, my aim is
apparently very bad, and my opponent appears to have been on the fragile side.  I'll
be here if you want to bloodfeud. -- Tulane Rhoades
P.S.  Couldn't you have tried to parry?
