                                      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.  SHEWISH BUFFET had 
cause to celebrate, after BLUE PLATE SPECIAL got 21 points by beating TRISH.  SIMON 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to HURIN and losing 9 
points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
LOIAL, of WHEEL OF TIME, who despite a 13-12-4 couldn't overcome LYRATILAN's Number 
1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead 
trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are LYRATILAN's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     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.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid LYRATILAN farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Lyratilan -- The buffet is back open for business!  For one turn only, we recommend
the Blue Plate Special.  Get it while its hot. -- One Armed Bandit, mgr. of Shewish
Buffet

Oh, dear, down to six fights, and one was in the Dark Arena.

Padre and Ghost of Staci -- Damn, not my intention.  Although... an aimed blow in
nothing but padded leather?  Asking for trouble.  Whatever the case, I shall be here
for any bloodfeud you care to bring forward. -- Gaspar Huelco

And for the rest of us, one-three, with one of those losses being to a standby.  Not
impressive. -- Keokuk Moon
