                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  ANGELIC KNIGHTS after a sorry 0-0-0 might want 
to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' 
blues!  Practice pays for AARON, who pummelled JACK OF HEARTS, to pocket 18 points.  
A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 13 
points to AARON.  (Discrete enough, JACK OF HEARTS?) JUDGEMENT successfully staved 
off a grab for the roses by ASHTON of AIMER'S INC.  Does WILLAF have no one talented 
enough to dethrone her?  Word has it one team in WILLAF is taking speech lessons to 
try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are WILLAF's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the warriors 
of BLOOD ON THE TRACKS should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided 
team...  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of GOLDEN GLADIATORS, so 
did that sorry team shy from BLOOD ON THE TRACKS Everyone is famous for fifteen 
minutes, and JACK OF HEARTS is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't BLOOD 
ON THE TRACKS proud!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in WILLAF would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and 
an overtaxed simile, I now bid WILLAF farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Judgement of Pandora's Cards -- It is only proper that one of your profession sits on
the Duelmaster Bench.  Salute. -- Midas

Righteous -- Well, we certainly found out that you are quicker and more decisive.  I
need to practice my weaving and dodging--a lot. -- Golden Gloves

Black Indekker -- I guess you would have to consider me your steady?  Ten dates seems
to send a clear statement.  I, for one, have loved every single one. (wink) -- Golden
Flash

Homemade Dress -- You again?  The RUGS must love you! -- Au

Whip Sawyer -- Too much saw, not enough whip. -- Goldfinch

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

An oh-fer and a death.  This is... it's just too much for me to think about.  Piracy
is simpler. -- Black Indekker
