                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  In the interest of complete reporting, SEA DOGS got a 2-3-0 last week, 
on their first time around.  Practice pays for GANGPLANK RIDER, who pummelled MISASHI 
SAN, to pocket 17 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, GANGPLANK RIDER 
was winsome, after beating MISASHI SAN and seeing him lose 13 points.  A certain 
someone saw ASHANDAR at Cagliostro's Castle with the shakes, and now he fails to show 
up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  What can be a greater victory?  
RAJEREK has taken his place as the top, as SUNSET's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one 
team in SUNSET is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are SUNSET's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble eagle 
soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of MAGIC CITY MAFIA, alone 
and unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, EQUITES VIRTUS scurried 
away from MAGIC CITY MAFIA.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, SLITHER could 
open up a fast food joint!  Take heed SUNSET, of the unprincipled action of KHORAG.  
By challenging DUCKBERT, 29 points below him, KHORAG besmirches the noble art of 
dueling.  KHORAG will have to start challenging legless old maids next, as he was 
overcame by DUCKBERT.  Good show, DUCKBERT!  TUSK challenged ADDUCTOR MAGNUS!  Who 
says GRIM FANDANGO are just a bunch of wimps!  TUSK of GRIM FANDANGO kept his wits as 
he subdued ADDUCTOR MAGNUS.  Mismatched by 8 points, ACE was overcame by RAJEREK.  Is 
this really worth noting?  I thought RAJEREK showed great skill and promise when he 
bested ACE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in SUNSET would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  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 SUNSET?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny 
Vir

Doc -- Congrats on your three turn record and Ashandar's reign as DM; I'm sure he'll
represent Sunset well in future tourneys. -- Stik

Papa Bear -- Nice job bringing home the gold with Mortician in the fall tourney. --
Stik

Sea Dogs -- Maybe we'll see you showing up soon, too, with a TV and another near
miss?? -- Stik

Magic City Mafia -- (sung to the tune of Wheezer's "Beverly Hills") Ves-tavi-a
Hiiillls, THAT'S who we wan-na KILL!!!!  Nice dodge last cycle, one more chance....
-- Grim Fandango

Adductor -- Disgusting.... -- Bonedust

Mortician -- More disgustedness...well, I know what weapon I can cross off the fave
search list at least. -- Slither

Toker -- Looks like you're making up for your slow start, nice challenge with
Aemilia.  Contagion needs to take a night fight before that particular disease
spreads.  Keep swingin'! -- Stik

Ultraist -- Where's the Sunset Hall of Fame?  I hope you're going to have it printed
here as well as the Iron Council website. -- Stik

Sons of Satan, Blackest Pride, Carnage Canaries, Yakuza, Book of Stink, where are
you?  The holidays are no time to stop spilling blood in Sunset! -- Stik and GF

Madam Butterfly -- It seems to me that Ace neither has the money, connections, or
imagination to plan and execute my death.  However, I will be on the look out for
would be assassins whenever I am near a dark alley.  Thanks for the heads up. --
Ashandar

Djininski -- And you do your job with class and a good sense of humor.  I am merely
doing my job to try and help you liven things up around here. -- Rajerek

Rajerek -- (really, really crossly)  You did laugh!  You looked at my rating that I
got after more than two YEARS at this, and you laughed like a damned hyena. -- Ace
P.S.  So did Nick.  That makes it worse.

Violent Pacification -- How like an orc! -- Diva Nashona

Pelham -- I may not be one of those stupid, skinny storks, but I can wait on silly
mammal if I have to. -- Duckbert
P.S.  But I stand on both feet while doing it.

Arturius -- I'll say I was shocked!  You smiled and revealed your boar's tusks!  A
sight to make anyone shiver. -- Djininski

Crouching Hamster -- (leaping back hysterically)  Don't DO that! -- Breakspere

Rajerek -- I don't need to try understanding to strain myself.  I can strain myself
just thinking about...well, almost anything.  Especially anything to do with the
arena. -- Djininski

5 November 2005
It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
