                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  DARKENED PRIDE after a sorry 0-0-0 might want 
to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' 
blues!  Experience counts in LYRATILAN, as the fresh boys in SUNGOD painfully found 
out.  Take heart--we all start somewhere!  Practice pays for LOOPY, who pummelled 
SOVEREYN, to pocket 22 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, LOOPY was 
winsome, after beating SOVEREYN and seeing it lose 19 points.  Those who hoped for a 
new Duelmaster were disappointed by PEROXIDE, of THE NATURALS, who despite a 12-9-2 
couldn't overcome LYRATILAN's Number 1.  Word has it one team in LYRATILAN 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!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in LYRATILAN avoid PRIMATES-R-US.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of CARNIVAL, so did that sorry team shy from 
PRIMATES-R-US If challenges were horses, ABSOLUCIOUN could open up a fast food joint! 
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in LYRATILAN would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in LYRATILAN is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid LYRATILAN 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

To All Managers -- I would like to take this time to announce that my alliance, The
Association, is no more.  Due to the dead weight managers of the alliance and their
lack of participation, DarkSpirit and I have formed a new alliance:  The Firm.  We
have taken on two members so far and are looking for a few more.  If you would like
to find out more about The Firm, you can diplo Dark Spirit, Unknowns XX in arena 15
or myself, Sungod, Sadists F2FII in arena 62.

26 July 2003
     Citizens of Alastari, a bright dawn has risen.  While you slept, a pernicious
force has entered the once-fair City of Aruak.  It fought alongside their treasured
warriors, it drank with their fans, and it slept with their women.  Now the masks are
coming off.
     Warriors, be afraid...be very afraid.  After years of Andorian managers ranting
that Aruak is the safest city in Alastari, the Frothingslosh Syndicate has selected
Aruak City as the home for its next epic 'contest'--Murder by Numbers II.  Our spies
have selected the warriors for extermination, and the executioners have had several
months to prepare.  Now a new age of darkness will descend upon Aruak, as the
Syndicate and its allies bring an entirely new level of competition to the arena!
Downchallenges!  Assassinations!  Small poodles as hors d'oeuvres!
     The Murder by Numbers II 'rules' will be announced next cycle.  However, we
invite all managers, from all corners of Alastari, to come to Aruak City and take
part...in one way or another.  Help defend the honor of a long heralded haven for the
pure, or join the forces of change in their siege of the ice-cream and cake
stronghold of the Dukes of Nerf-Dueling!
     This exercise is not for either the faint of heart or the weak willed.  Blood
will flow, brains will leak, and beer will be chugged.  Either way, we welcome you
with open arms and gleaming blades.
     This public service announcement has been brought to you by Frothingslosh Epic
Contests (tm), the number 86, and the letter 'K'.
