                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  KAOS 2 had cause to celebrate, after KYNGRATH 
MOR got 21 points by beating EMBEZZLING HEN.  A certain someone should cut down on 
the drinking and practice more, after losing 13 points to OUT OF REACH.  (Discrete 
enough, BURT?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by HEN OF 
DEATH, of HENPCS, who despite a 16-17-0 couldn't overcome SOLVEN's Number 1.  So 
who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds 
like a PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are SOLVEN's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in SOLVEN avoid HENPCS.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, SERPENTS HOLD scurried away from HENPCS.  Oh, the 
shame!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in SOLVEN is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  SOLVEN, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
The Victory Tavern.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Is it my imagination, or is very little challenging and avoiding being done in the
basic arenas across Alastari?

Thome -- I thought at first you might be a poem, but then I realized that the poem is
a THROME, with an R in it.  I'm thinking that, though you serpents roll, you don't
trill, right?  So you probably couldn't have done an R if you'd wanted to.  Too bad.
A good poem by or about a duelmaster would be a fine thing.  I think. -- Gorlon
Inthur

The Khalhums Dwarf was rude.  He made a comment of the kind I do NOT allow. --
Dejanna Kalm

Chicken Guard -- I curl my lip in scorn at you, who cannot curl lips, having a beak
instead.  So I'm showing off, sue me. -- Fedora Linde

Hen of Death -- Oh, we fought?  My attention was elsewhere, sorry.  Stuff on my mind,
you know. -- Korine Orles

Embezzling Hen -- Sorry, but I *needed* those eggs. -- Lynnis Nall
