                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of LYRATILAN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  FUNKY FOLK had 
cause to celebrate, after BILLY CLUB got 25 points by beating URBIN YATES.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 22 points to 
NOBLE ASSASSIN.  (Discrete enough, AIKIDO?) Can you believe it?  BELLE ISSIMO 
apparently has better things to do as LYRATILAN's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  
In LYRATILAN, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new 
Duelmaster, RAVING LUNATIC.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of FUNKY FOLK, alone and unchallenged.  Like 
a pup with its tail between its legs, DARK FORCES scurried away from FUNKY FOLK.  Oh, 
the shame!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in LYRATILAN is the highlight of my life.  As the 
seasons change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to 
leave this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Kraken -- May you krak when you freeze at night. -- Fenella Jhen
P.S.  At this time of year, everything freezes at night.  It's a law of nature.

Sue Churz -- I see what Isek meant about the embroidery.  How about if you don't do
that on me again, should you have the chance. -- Kolter Neethe

Even a Ruthless Jaywalker isn't invincible, if you got a heavy enough wagon moving at
speed. -- Urbin Yates

The Trustworthy Scribe offered to "autograph my paycheck," but I declined.  It was
something in the way his eyes shifted as he said it that tipped me off. -- Isek Krol

Sam Sonne -- When Jorja handed me the clippers as I stepped out on the sand, I
wondered what I was supposed to do with 'em.  Then I saw those flowing locks and all
became clear. -- Tol Voram
