                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon LYRATILAN, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  THE MIDDLE WAY 4?  Who?  DARK FORCES is the top 
team these days, buddies!  DARK FORCES had cause to celebrate, after APOLLYON got 17 
points by beating THE HONEST MERCHANT.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
KRAKEN was winsome, after beating MRS. PEACOCK and seeing her lose 18 points.  THE 
LEAD PIPE successfully staved off a grab for the roses by KOLTER NEETHE of THE MIDDLE 
WAY 4.  Does LYRATILAN have no one talented enough to dethrone it?  Word has it one 
team in LYRATILAN is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  
I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of THE MIDDLE WAY 4, alone and unchallenged.  As 
a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of FUNKY FOLK, so did that sorry team 
shy from THE MIDDLE WAY 4 Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  
Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, THE HALLWAY is the most challenged warrior.  THE 
COOK found herself challenged by a warrior 21 below:  MAO TSE TUNG.  MAO TSE TUNG of 
DARK FORCES kept his wits as he was beat by THE COOK.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in LYRATILAN would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  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

Mrs. Peacock -- You did it!  It was you, in the conservatory, with the wrench.  Why
did you use a wrench?  It seems such an unlikely choice for you. -- Kolter Neethe

Indigo -- You make me feel blue. -- Urbin Yates

Dammit, I will *not* yield to a dwarf, Khalhums or otherwise! -- Isek Krol

The Visiting Orc isn't getting a victory off me, either. -- Tol Voram

Kraken -- AAAH!  Tentacles!  I can't stand tentacles. -- Gilgamesh Idon

The Walkin' Dude -- Ah, input errors!  Whatever the origin--wrong id number on the
fight sheet, inputter error, they are the bane of a manager's life, but sometimes
much worse for a gladiator's life!  My classic example is a lunger who was sent out
with a warflail.... -- Jorja
P.S.  She died.

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
