                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ZORPUNT.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
BILL POOLE, who pummelled INNY MEANIE, to pocket 8 points.  A certain someone should 
cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 4 points to BUBBA JONES.  
(Discrete enough, KING BROWN SNAKE?) A certain someone saw TENTACRUEL at The Warty 
Toad with the shakes, and now he fails to show up to defend his throne.  What a 
pathetic slob!  What can be a greater victory?  BUBBA JONES has taken his place as 
the top, as ZORPUNT's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in ZORPUNT is taking 
speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are ZORPUNT's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of KRILL CAVALRY, alone 
and unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, MONEY PIT scurried away 
from KRILL CAVALRY.  Oh, the shame!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZORPUNT is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing 
Spyreports for ZORPUNT?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Gilbo Shortaxe, Khalhums Dwarf -- Perhaps if you'd used a longer axe, one that
allowed you to keep your distance, things would have worked better for you.  Or for
me.  Or for SOMEBODY.  Thing is, I hate being beaten by sawed off cave rats, er,
vertically challenged citizens of the underground persuasion, and if you'd used a
longer, and thus presumably less suitable, weapon, *I* might have won that.  Which
would have been FINE with me. -- Bubba Jones

Inny Meanie -- (pleased surprise)  Hey, I won!  That's amazing, even with the
difference in experience--YOUR manager pays attention sometimes, right?  But you
should have learned more, unless you've been stockpiling skills in the tourneys. --
Bill Poole

I don't know who the Convicted Thief is, but I think this match was a "gimme" too.
And I'll take it. -- Tiralea Flete

Box Jellyfish -- Bad enough finding you guys on the beach, but in the icebox?  Gross.
-- Teri Lark
P.S.  Aren't there any killer mammals in Aussie?

     Humans? -- Ed.

Taipan -- Snakes!  Grrr.  I hate snakes.  They make me wild.  Take that! -- Mikela
Poole

Kalzak Steeleye, Beggar -- If the Box Jellyfish is one of your enforcers, I'm going
to protest to the Commission! -- Teri Lark
P.S.  He's...compromising his amateur status, or maybe his professional status, or
SOMETHING.

Tiralea Flete -- Finagis told me you're a hot babe, and he wasn't just blowing hot
air.  Hubba hubba. -- Looshus J. Kittson, "Convicted Thief"
P.S.  It just crawled into my hand, honest!

Ultimate Sin -- You are a mere dilettante in the matter of sins.  But we can teach
you many things.  A guide will be at the back door of your guildhouse to escort you
to one of our meetings. -- Sellestro, Cult Master

Bubba Jones -- How have you managed to keep your winning record?  That effort was
pathetic. -- Gilbo Shortaxe, Dwarf of Khalhums and proud of it
P.S.  The "short" joke at the beginning of the fight did you no good.
