                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for LIPSTICK, who pummelled 
FROGS FORM THE SKY, to pocket 16 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
COCKEYED UMBRELLA was winsome, after beating AARON and seeing him lose 3 points.  
Like a flirtacious debutante, TALCAMA's Duelmaster KILL KITTEN found himself the man 
of the hour, being "invited to dance" 4 times!  The arena was more crowded than usual 
this time, as GURGLES faced TALCAMA's Duelmaster.  In TALCAMA, nothing is permanent 
(except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, GURGLES.  So who's the team 
that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt 
to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in CENTER 
FOR OLDS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman 
of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of SHEPHERDS, so did that sorry team shy from 
CENTER FOR OLDS A'S SPECIAL BLEND found himself challenged by a warrior 24 below:  
SLIPPERY MICKEY.  SLIPPERY MICKEY of CENTER FOR OLDS kept its wits as it was bested 
by A'S SPECIAL BLEND.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Slippery Mickey -- Any chance I can convince Suave to give you a different weapon
next time we meet?  My first recommendation would be a War Flail, but any of the
blunt weapons seem to be equally good against Plate.  And one of Suave's other
bashers, a fine Lord Protector named Delaware Run (who has almost 100 wins) favors
the Medium Shield as his favorite weapon.  Perhaps you might want to check if that is
your natural weapon, too? -- Ruth

Gurgles -- What I want to say is stuck in my throat. -- A's Special Blend

Cockeyed Umbrella -- Assur is reconsidering.  If you are going to teach like that, it
might be to my advantage to continue to challenge you. -- Aaron

Suave -- Aaron really isn't supposed to be scumming.  But something about that little
old lady with the Umbrella makes Aaron stop and consider what he is doing.  I have no
explanation.  I blame it on the little old lady! -- Assur
P.S.  The other two?  Well...
