                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for PAUL TREE, who pummelled FENELLA JHEN, to pocket 14 
points.  FENELLA JHEN certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing 
to PAUL TREE and losing 13 points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new 
Duelmaster were disappointed by JESSITA MAUR, of THE MIDDLE WAY 4, who despite a 
11-6-0 couldn't overcome LYRATILAN's Number 1.  Word has it one team in LYRATILAN is 
using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are LYRATILAN's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in LYRATILAN avoid THE MIDDLE 
WAY 4.  The warriors of THE MIDDLE WAY 4 found their efforts at combat frustrated as 
FUNKY FOLK apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were 
horses, FENELLA JHEN could open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid LYRATILAN farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Belle Issimo -- You got me a good one there!  I may not hear for a week. -- Saml
Ulron
P.S.  Which is not all bad, as certain of my teammates have gotten the notion they
can sing.

Col. Mustard -- If you visualize the arena as a slice of bread, I spread you all over
it.  Then I called for the ham.... -- Fenella Jhen

Paul Tree -- You're better off with a loss on your record.  Less conspicuous.  Think
of it as a safety measure, just like armor. -- Jessita Maur

I have no patience with the Guard's Ambitions.  Call me hard-natured if you must, but
there it is. -- Urbin Yates

Billy Club -- Noooooo! -- Ghost of Hobbie Jons

We salute Lyratilan's tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
