                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  THE MIDDLE WAY 4?  Who?  SHEWISH BUFFET is the top team these days, 
buddies!  Practice pays for DINNER TROLL, who pummelled THE HONEST MERCHANT, to 
pocket 21 points.  KEOKUK MOON certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after 
losing to LOIAL and losing 4 points in the process!  Now I can't insult HURIN, as he 
has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it 
on too thick) So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure 
of writing Spyreports for LYRATILAN?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny 
Vir

Hi, Lyratilan!  It's been many years since I set foot in this wonderful place.  I
plan to be around for awhile.  I would really like to see some of the 'old dogs'
graduate, and find a few new recruits. -- Stillgard, mgr Wheel Of Time

Hurin -- Stillgard is talking about you, old dog! -- Loial

Hey!  I am not that old! -- Hurin

Gaspar -- You are fast for your size! -- Loial

Simon -- I love the scent of victory! -- Hurin

Debbie -- I have more tricks up my sleeve if you would like to try again. -- Thom

Jorja & Gaspar -- Well, Staci was the only one worth putting to the test, and the
replacement sucks.  The others are average and it would take a while to make them
into winners.  So one more DA of the replacement and if nothing worthwhile comes up,
we idle this one unless Staci comes back in the dead tournament. -- Padre

Well!  Things are looking up, though I'm still the duelmaster.  But we had eleven
fights, plus four in the Dark Arena (someone prospecting for rookies?), AND the
Buffet is back!  Good food while it lasts, and I, for one, plan to be there with
plate in hand. -- Gaspar Huelco
P.S.  Three-two for us, with two of the wins being over standbys, but they ARE wins.
So there!

Our congratulations to the Comic Book Guy.  Nothing like someone who reads, eh? --
Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

Ratantouille -- I couldn't eat it all.  I thought I could, but... it was too much. --
Arizona Bates

Crepe Suzette -- I was doing FINE, no, really, I *WAS*--until you burst into flames.
That startled me. -- Leron Marsh
