                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  IT'S ALL RELATIVE had cause to celebrate, after TWISTED SISTER got 30 
points by beating BLACKADDER.  LIONFISH certainly had a baffled expression on his 
face, after losing to GO-FER and losing 16 points in the process!  Duelmaster PINK 
from SEEING RED is going for the gold, as she Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's HIGH 
ELF.  Ooh, the excitement!  PINK successfully staved off a grab for the roses by HIGH 
ELF of DARK ARENA.  Does CALEAM have no one talented enough to dethrone her?  Word 
has it one team in CALEAM is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed 
life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in CALEAM avoid GOLDEN CANYON.  The warriors of GOLDEN 
CANYON found their efforts at combat frustrated as VENOM apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Those who owe 
PINK of SEEING RED money and had written her off, take note:  she'S BACK FROM THE 
DARK ARENA!!!  AND she'S MAD!!!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself 
must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything compare 
to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for CALEAM?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Twisted Sister -- Quite the corkscrew, yes.  But do you think it's quite LADYLIKE? --
Miss Priss

Lionfish -- (scowling)  You're out to get me!  I can tell. -- Go-Fer

Yes, well, OKAY, if he feels that way about it, the Ambitious Guard CAN drink in our
tavern.  Cheese. -- Bouncer

Massasaugus -- Teaching is a dirty job, but somebody's got to do it.  Just try not to
kill me, okay? -- Poppa Lode

Gangrene -- Do you think it'll help, just being "patched up and sent home"?  What if
your condition spreads? -- Korbel

Is there anybody in the DM game who is incarcerated that has had to litigate in order
to continue playing?  Or anyone in the free world who may be able to help me with
case law or legal advice?  The Administration has already taken "D&D type games" from
us once (though I recently had that decision overturned).  I believe it's only a
matter of time before they try it again and I am prepared to file a lawsuit if need
be.  I enjoy DM and any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated!  I
can be contacted at:

Ladies and gents...get your teams together and join in on the hottest and fiercest
contest ever to grace the arena sands!  Intrigue, personal wars, you name it...we got
it going on!  What is this contest?  It's the Turf War IV in DM 47, North Fork!!
This fantastic contest was begun by my alliance mate Asmo Dius, and I've picked up
some of the slack.  Contest starts on Turn 225 (approx. date June 9th?).  It's an
"alliance-type contest", so grab your folks and bring them in for a bang up time.
Rules will be printed in the DM 47 newsletter at least until the contest starts. --
