                                      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.  ALMOST 
THANKSGIVING?  Who?  ZOMBIE SQUAD 2 is the top team these days, buddies!  THE 
GENERALS had cause to celebrate, after BRADLEY got 20 points by beating ALIDA BERN.  
CORNBREAD STUFFING certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to 
REAPER and losing 12 points in the process!  SEXTUS successfully staved off a grab 
for the roses by ZEBD ARVIN of MIDDLE WAY.  Does ALJAFIR have no one talented enough 
to dethrone him?  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!  Perhaps the warriors of MIDDLE WAY 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with 
its tail between its legs, ZOMBIE SQUAD 2 scurried away from MIDDLE WAY.  Oh, the 
shame!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Ah, good, we are NOWHERE on the front page.  At least, not any way that counts.  So,
just personals....

Sextus -- Good work.  Have fun with it. -- Alida Bern

Ah, the Venomous Concubine.  What... fun.  A nasty-tempered wench. -- Zebd Arvin

Kung-Fu.  Whoopee.  He kicks.  My sister used to kick when we shared a bed as kids.
-- Bellona Chist

Bradley -- You surrendered gracefully, so I'm in a good mood with you.  Not the
grace, which was kinda wussy, but for surrendering.  I like people who lose to me. --
Senlum Nosh

Brunhilda -- That went well!  Thanks. -- Kaireen Lamar
