                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ALJAFIR, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for STAND IN LINE, who pummelled 
CONVICTED THIEF, to pocket 14 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 9 points to ZEBD ARVIN.  (Discrete enough, 
BRADLEY?) What can be a greater victory?  ZEBD ARVIN has taken his place as the top, 
as ALJAFIR's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in ALJAFIR 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!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  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.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of 
writing Spyreports for ALJAFIR?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

The Userous Merchant.  How... thrilling.  What I mean is, I've *done* the Userous
Merchant, and so have all my teammates.  Of course, we've done everyone else in the
arena, too.... -- Zebd Arvin

Hannable -- Not today, I have a headache. -- Senlum Nosh
P.S.  And we're facing First Frost, I've got to bring the houseplants in.

Brunhilda -- It's that impressive brass prowess.  It doesn't impress me, 'cause I'm
not a guy. -- Alida Bern
P.S.  Though I'm sure that if I had been, it would have done.

The Fratsfa Slave?  Please!  What a wuss. -- Bellona Chist

Don't laugh, the Embezzling Scribe is tough when you're just beginning. -- Kaireen
Lamar

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
