                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Those betting on THE BOWLS lost their shirt, as THE BOWLS lost their 
fighting abilities:  0-0-0.  What's a move up by 7 you ask?  (alright, maybe you 
didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to DEVIATION.  Good things come to 
those who fight well, as KANO CLAN can attest, moving up by 6.  Practice pays for 
HELL HATH NO FURY, who pummelled THAK, to pocket 23 points.  PANAMA RED certainly had 
a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to KUNG-FU MASTER and losing 21 
points in the process!  In SUNSET, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find 
ourselves a new Duelmaster, CRIXUS.  Word has it one team in SUNSET 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!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in NOMADIC TRIBE are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As 
a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of KANO CLAN, so did that sorry team 
shy from NOMADIC TRIBE Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good 
oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, BRUNO SQUALL is the most challenged warrior.  Place 
your bets!  LENNY SPARK is the long shot of the week:  they challenged DAGAN, up by 
32.  Soopreyes, soopreyes!  LENNY SPARK emerges from the fray 5 points the richer.  
Good show, LENNY SPARK!  OBSTAKUL found himself challenged by a warrior 25 below:  
JACK B NIMBLE.  JACK B NIMBLE of ALL JACKED UP II kept its wits as it beat OBSTAKUL.  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Q:  What's a record 
like 3-8-2 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  This week's winner:  MICKEY 
O'RION of CELESTIAL WRATH!  How true is ALL JACKED UP II's mettle?  Just one week 
remains for the avenging of JACK OF ALL TRADES' death.  Charity is unknown in SUNSET, 
and rightly so.  DEVIATION exacted their revenge against THE RED BLADES.  Justice was 
served as EVNMOR BLAK fought DELAMAR in bloodfeud.  Well done, GRIM FANDANGO!  Oh 
hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in SUNSET is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Unholy Ones, World Blades, and Random Chaos -- Welcome to Sunset, great to have you
all here!  Drinks on us tonight down at our team-owned watering hole, the storied
Broken Bone Tavern.  But, ah, Unholies, you'd better leave Delamar at the guildhouse
this time, or things might get ugly.  He's gonna need the extra practice anyway! ;)

-- ghost of Slipp

Thor -- You made that kind of easy for me, if I have to say so.  And I did, sorry. --

backup is still nice and shiny. -- Bruno

Eversomuchmoreso Blak -- Nice challenge.  Did you try again? -- Shirley
