                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon SUNSET, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  LITERATE LOONS posted a nice gain, to come in 2nd.  
Everybody loves a winner...  BAD BEAT had cause to celebrate, after DUDE got 21 
points by beating ZALY.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, ROSSMONT was 
winsome, after beating KORLAC and seeing him lose 7 points.  Well, Duelmaster PARROT 
KEEPER Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's QUICKSILVER.  Is a 14-6-1 good enough?  
PARROT KEEPER successfully staved off a grab for the roses by QUICKSILVER of DARK 
ARENA.  Does SUNSET have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one 
team in SUNSET is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll 
bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of NOMADIC TRIBE, alone and unchallenged.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, GRIM FANDANGO scurried away from NOMADIC TRIBE.  
Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, DOILY is the most challenged warrior.  SURLY DECKHAND found 
himself challenged by a warrior 24 below:  HOGSNORT.  HOGSNORT of DEATH MOB 4 kept 
his wits as he lost to SURLY DECKHAND.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  QUICKSILVER in the 
Dark Arena wasn't enough for PARROT KEEPER of SEA DOGS.  Maybe that certain serving 
girl(?) at Wildlife Unlimited will be!  Sober up, young warriors, and take note of 
ZALY's fate!  DUDE of BAD BEAT handily did her in.  Experience counts for something 
on SUNSET's sands.  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long 
after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in SUNSET is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing 
Spyreports for SUNSET?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Misashi San -- I guess you didn't give up on the Bloodfeud.  Perhaps you should have
done so.  Do I get the big scum for the last fight? -- Bullwinkle

Kerouac -- Nice challenge.  I may want to try that again sometime with a different
strategy.  That one clearly did not work. -- Ursa

Whitman -- I was close, but couldn't quite finish the job.  Nice challenge. -- Tengri
Khan

Doily -- This time I was "savage"!  Gotta like that. -- Ziggy "Savage" Wolfsbane

Hogsnort -- Nice name.  Did you choose that one or did your manager give it to you? I
must admit that I find it very amusing that you collapsed before I did.  Welcome to
Sunset. -- Dante

Djinski -- Madrigals under the stars does sound pleasant.  But I have to admit, you
might be a bit old for me.  All those extra FE and some time off? -- Ursa Minor

I hope that those managers living up in the Cold Lands are doing okay?  It's been
challenging here, and we're supposed to be temperate! -- Jorja, Sword Opera

Vulge -- Ah, you wretched palug, you GOT me, but not for long.  I shall spring back,
leap up--that's my specialty, you know, the leaps, I'm a primo ballerino--and lose
again!  I was very glad to see that such a coarse, crude name as yours was not
applied to a female, even though I know some females can be notably coarse and crude.
Ah, nobody of my personal acquaintance!  Never think it.  All sweet and delicate
females... is my nose growing?  Well, whatever, the bed rest was good, and now I
should doubtless take that decisiveness you imparted and end this personal.  What a
thought! -- Djininski

Nevermore -- So I would WISH, you dumb bird.  Darned ravens.  You know what they call
a bunch of ravens all gathered together?  Along the lines of, you know, a covey of
quail or a celebration of larks?  An UNKINDNESS of ravens, you nasty bird! -- Baron
Tone, fulminating and grumbling
P.S.  Although I suppose I should be glad you aren't a member of a murder of crows.

Lagerkvist -- Sounds like ale, and I'll take some, thanks!  Just the ticket. --
Breakspere

Zaly -- You're an encroaching wench.  I suppose I shouldn't grumble because you
didn't teach much, but... nah, I'll grumble if I want to.  After all, you WON, so you
must know some stuff.  If we meet again, I expect SKILLS, you ungrateful wench. --
Rossmont
P.S.  Ungrateful because you didn't look at my experience and decide to learn some of
MY skills.  Just PASSING UP a superb chance to learn from a master.  Why, I could
tell you secrets about the apostrophes that would CURL YOUR HAIR.  I expect to make a
fortune on that, once word gets out that I can produce curls in hair without the need
of smelly chemicals and uncomfortable heat.

Iopia -- I had a relative who worked there.  Didn't spell it QUITE like that, but
close enough, I'm sure. -- Merry Leona

Well, an oh-fer turn, JUST what this team needed to improve morale! -- Madame
Butterfly
P.S.  And the members of the cast are all complaining that now they've been properly
listed in the ranks, people CHALLENGE them and DEFEAT them.  I tell them, practice.
They don't want to hear it.  Silly children.

Dante -- They tell me that in some small arenas, that isn't so unusual.  I wouldn't
know. -- Merry Leona
P.S.  But I bet the loser doesn't have to keep grinning like an idiot all through it.
Drat and blast La Butterfly for sticking me with this cognomen.

Our congratulations to Parrot Keeper.  Take the bird with you, please. -- Sword Opera

Lord Protector Parrot Keeper -- Arenamaster Harth has complained of your parrot, why
did you teach it to say things like that?  Anyway, he isn't being at all helpful over
this "Goodies for Graduating Gladiators" issue, and I don't think it's because he
dislikes alliteration, either.  I have, however, checked with King Cyrath, and he
says all the lands he can spare is about ten square feet of mudflat that's only above
water at low tide.  I suppose you could build a closet on pilings, but why bother?
If you have some non-land wishes, trot them out and we'll see if there are any we
could meet on our budget. -- Alamar, Gladiatorial Lands Commissioner (that title has
come to be a very unpleasant joke these days, no ruler in Alastari seems to be
feeling generous with his or her subjects' property)
