                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Perhaps it is CELESTIAL WRATH members' 
intannibility that enabled them to move from 15th to 3rd last week...  (Less time in 
the sun...) Those betting on DESTINY lost their shirt, as DESTINY lost their fighting 
abilities:  1-3-0.  NOMADIC TRIBE posted a nice gain, to come in 2nd.  Everybody 
loves a winner...  Practice pays for CHOCOLATE THERAPY, who pummelled SUPER CHICKEN, 
to pocket 24 points.  BUDDY certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after 
losing to THE HUNTRESS and losing 12 points in the process!  You could cut the 
tension with a scimitar as OENOMAUS of BLOOD AND SAND met the Duelmaster.  Those who 
hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by OENOMAUS, of BLOOD AND SAND, who 
despite a 16-11-0 couldn't overcome SUNSET's Number 1.  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.  Perhaps the warriors 
of NOMADIC TRIBE should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  
The warriors of NOMADIC TRIBE found their efforts at combat frustrated as KANO CLAN 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, 
METARU HEI could open up a fast food joint!  Take heed SUNSET, of the unprincipled 
action of BONHAM.  By challenging WAMBASU THE BOLD, 24 points below him, BONHAM 
besmirches the noble art of dueling.  Yes, Virginia, sometimes the little guy wins, 
as WAMBASU THE BOLD proved, beating 24 point higher BONHAM.  Place your bets!  IXION 
is the long shot of the week:  they challenged METARU HEI, up by 30.  Not to smear a 
reputation, but KANO CLAN must be a little surprised, as METARU HEI blew it when 
facing IXION, 30 points below him.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Q:  What's a record 
like 5-6-0 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  This week's winner:  
PROFFESSOR PUMMEL of BEN'S BAZAAR!  Perhaps BLOOD AND SAND were the only ones left 
untouched by LZZY demise.  Can anyone ever take hers place?  Or do I exaggerate?  The 
warriors at TOON INN stable were more sober than usual,  after SUPER CHICKEN's demise 
at the hands of CHOCOLATE THERAPY.  CHOCOLATE THERAPY, don't make any long term 
plans!  Word has it REAL BEER is planning on terminating more GRIM FANDANGO members, 
if they have so little to fear from revenge...  Justice was served as EDDIE BOSS 
fought SHREDDED KNEES in bloodfeud.  Well done, CELESTIAL WRATH!  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 the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  SUNSET, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at Baba Yaga's Bar and 
Grill.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Sunset -- Quit putting my team in he infirmary!  Show some respect for your elders!
-- Destiny

Sl's Ironwood -- That was fun swattin you around the arena. -- Bjorn

Sunset -- Thanks for all the fun, I'm off to Talahya.  I finally got the invite. --
Flashback

To anyone interested -- Ozadanwin: 9+2)-13(+1)-9-15(+1)-21-10-11 Ripper.  Masters in 
Riposte and Parry.  And AE in attack and an expert in Defense.  He was -2 in attack
and +2 defense.  An attempt at an 11 deftness ripper.  He was okay, but a 21-18-1
final record was a bit of a disappointment.  He seemed to do much better when
overburdened with a lot of armor than when he was more reasonably burdened.  Retired.
-- The Tribe

To anyone interested, part II -- Wambasu the Bold:  15(+1)-5(+1)-20-11-21-7-7   A
size 20 offensive waste.  Tremendous damage.  -4 attack... (ouch!)  A very slow
learner with AE in Init and attack and an expert in parry.  Battleaxe fave, although
he always used the broadsword--his options were limited by stats.  VH/L rhythm, which
I would never have guessed.  He usually ran VH/Mod.  He needed more defensives at the
top of the rankings.  That attack hosing stunk as he was a crazy enough design that
he was fun when he wasn't getting crushed.  Retired. -- The Tribe

Oenomaus -- Thank you!  I made it!  The losses have been piling up.  I needed that.
Who knew it would be enough to get my immortality. -- Wambasu the Immortal!

Iovis -- Your team seems to like vowels.  Nice try.  Feel free to try again. --
Traevenmore

A veteran mercenary?  Okay, I'll take the win. -- Torino

And the exodus continues with 3 more grads and another death.  Is that 11 Champions
leaving in 2 turns?  Room at the top for those daring enough to seize the
opportunity!  Congrats to the graduates, and condolences to those who have suffered
the definitive loss. -- Nomad and the Tribe
