                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ALJAFIR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Good things come 
to those who fight well, as MIDDLE WAY can attest, moving up by 0.  Practice pays for 
SALARA LORMIN, who pummelled VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, to pocket 14 points.  BRADLEY 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to THE USEROUS MERCHANT 
and losing 4 points in the process!  Can you believe it?  THEODOSIUS apparently has 
better things to do as ALJAFIR's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  Now I can't 
insult YAREK ZURN, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new 
Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who was the warrior seen 
charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of FIELDS OF ELYSIUM, alone and unchallenged. 
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, GLADIATORS scurried away from FIELDS OF 
ELYSIUM.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and GRISHORT HURM 
is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't MIDDLE WAY proud!   
     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!  More important duties call me.  ALJAFIR, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Vile Vizier.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir
