                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TALCAMA.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at CENTER 
FOR OLDS left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by NEXT 
GENERATION.  Good show!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't 
ask)  Cause for celebration, according to SHEPHERDS.  Practice pays for PICK HARD, 
who pummelled SPOONIE G, to pocket 17 points.  SPOONIE G certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to PICK HARD and losing 10 points in the 
process!  Like a flirtacious debutante, TALCAMA's Duelmaster KILL KITTEN found 
himself the man of the hour, being "invited to dance" 2 times!  You could cut the 
tension with a scimitar as CRUSHING BRATZ of NEXT GENERATION met the Duelmaster.  In 
TALCAMA, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, 
CRUSHING BRATZ.  Word has it one team in TALCAMA 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!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of ARDUIN GRIMOIRE, alone and unchallenged.  
As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of NEXT GENERATION, so did that 
sorry team shy from ARDUIN GRIMOIRE LIPSTICK found himself challenged by a warrior 25 
below:  MOSES.  MOSES of SHEPHERDS kept his wits as he subdued LIPSTICK.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  TALCAMA, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Original Arthur's Last Stand.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
