                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  KELLUMBO'S KIDS had cause to celebrate, after 
DONNETTA got 11 points by beating CHAZ DUCKER.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, GRANDPA RAT was winsome, after beating HATCHET and seeing him lose 8 points.  
Duelmaster SUPPLY SIDE from THE REPUBLICANS is going for the gold, as he Bloodfeuded 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS' SMELLY.  Ooh, the excitement!  Now I can't insult SMELLY, as he has 
gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on 
too thick) Word has it one team in SOLVEN is using psychics to predict wins.  They 
lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of CONSPIRACY INC. 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of 
CONSPIRACY INC. found their efforts at combat frustrated as KELLUMBO'S KIDS 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for 
fifteen minutes, and SAMUEL A ALITO, JR is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  
Isn't THE REPUBLICANS proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in SOLVEN is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I 
now bid SOLVEN farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Kofi, Kofi, Kofi -- Last year it was you and your family stealing from a food program
for the poor.  This year you ruin a white Christmas by killing Snowball a week before
the holiday.  You might need to change your name to Jacob Marley. -- Mr. Freeze.

Donnetta -- (waggling his eyebrows)  You're no kid, pussycat! -- Benito Chatte

Blizzard -- I had my long-johns on. -- Zebroe
P.S.  Be prepared.

Iqbal Riza -- Drag. -- Ghost of Kurlouie
P.S.  Next time I'm born, I will choose a different set of gods, since the ones I was
using today manifestly did NOT protect me.

I'm not afraid of somebody whose eyes twitch.  A nincompoop. -- Chaz Ducker

Lord Protector Supply Side -- No, can't do.  No lands.  We are not democrats!  You
want it, you earn it.  Being a gladiator about to leave town is not what the local
administration considers "earning it." -- Malakato Marrotinis, Arena Administrator
