                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  GOLDEN CANYON?  Who?  SERPENTS HOLD is the top 
team these days, buddies!  Practice pays for PAVEN, who pummelled EGLANTINE NOGS, to 
pocket 22 points.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by MISS 
CATTY, of GOLDEN CANYON, who despite a 16-13-0 couldn't overcome CALEAM's Number 1.  
So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  
Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in CALEAM is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a 
mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid CALEAM farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Aeryn -- You were right about the Serpents.  Wretched creatures.  It gives me a
certain amount of pleasure to recall that I once cooked a rattlesnake. -- Miss Catty

Cobra -- Why should I talk to you?  Why should I offer you my latest creation from
the kitchen?  Bah. -- Risella Pilaf

At least the Veteran Mercenary knows when it's best for him to lose! -- Miss Catty,
not feeling friendly

"EGLANTINE NOGS was vanquished by IMAGINATION"?  I resent that!  I have a LOT of
imagination, and if you come around the Golden Canyon later today, I'll serve you
something that DEMONSTRATES my imagination in the clearest possible way!  And you'll
like it, too, I'm not one of your closet poisoners. -- Eglantine Nogs

It seems odd that the "Fratsfan Noble" isn't Fratsfan, but then, that's life these
days.  He's probably soy. -- Appelonia, working with real apples

Paven -- Don't like fresh bread, eh?  Weird.  I thought everyone liked fresh bread.
-- Sourdough Sam

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
families. -- Gentleben (Sunset-21, Morya-28, Arvat-32 and Talahya-100)
