                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  THE MOTHERSHIP CC?  Who?  VISIONS V2 is the top team these days, 
buddies!  Practice pays for MOTHER GHEA NEWS, who pummelled VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, to 
pocket 21 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, FRATSFA SLAVE was 
winsome, after beating HEALTH DIGEST and seeing him lose 17 points.  Duelmaster 
SAMUEL COLT from MAN OR BEAST? is going for the gold, as he challenged VISIONS V2's 
RAMEX.  Ooh, the excitement!  RAMEX found out that ZUWAYZA isn't a democracy.  You've 
gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     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 THE 
MOTHERSHIP CC are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The 
warriors of THE MOTHERSHIP CC found their efforts at combat frustrated as MAN OR 
BEAST? apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were 
horses, DOTTLE could open up a fast food joint!  Mismatched by 14 points, DOTTLE was 
bested by NEWT ROCKNE.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought NEWT ROCKNE showed 
great skill and promise when he subdued DOTTLE.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Ramex -- He probably can.  Samuel, that is.  Because he doesn't waste any energy
talking.  Bah. -- Mother Ghea News

Treme -- So I lost and dropped nine points.  Pooh.  It's all a plan to "come from
below" and GET you.  Or somebody. -- Modern Phrenology

Zyane -- How COULD you mash melons all over my House Beautiful?

Orcs do very little for the ecology that is WORTH doing.  Unfortunately, I can't
advocate genocide, that is not the province of Man (I include all sentient creatures
in that loose designation).  Nature must make the decision, I only report what I see.
-- Mother Ghea News

The Userous Merchant was charging RIDICULOUS prices for his dietary supplements.  I
fixed THAT. -- Health Digest

Lannier -- When your Bride sees what you've chosen for the wedding, she'll be
FURIOUS.  You'll be LUCKY if she doesn't cancel entirely. -- Everybride
