                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Those betting on THE ANIMALS lost their shirt, as THE ANIMALS lost 
their fighting abilities:  1-4-0.  What's a move up by 5 you ask?  (alright, maybe 
you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to PHANTACITY.  SERPENT_CRUE posted 
a nice gain, to come in 5th.  Everybody loves a winner...  SERPENT_CRUE had cause to 
celebrate, after DEATHSTINED got 19 points by beating MA'CHES.  Those who hoped for a 
new Duelmaster were disappointed by LADY ELMA, of FILIPINA LADYZ, who despite a 
16-12-1 couldn't overcome MORYA'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.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of PHANTACITY 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of THE PENTARCHY, so did that sorry team shy from 
PHANTACITY Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene? 
Whatever it is, SAFFA BORSO is the most challenged warrior.  BLACK ROSE HAMMER found 
herself challenged by a warrior 21 below:  BODY BAGER.  BODY BAGER of THE DISCIPLES 
kept his wits as he was subdued by BLACK ROSE HAMMER.  My love of complete Spyreports 
dictates that I note the mismatched fight, ZANZIBAR and FIRST PRIME.  Are ZULU NATION 
unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I thought ZANZIBAR showed great skill and 
promise when it was overcame by FIRST PRIME.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Hey LEGION OF DOOM!  
Is there some deep dark, unmentionable secret as to why BANE has been sent to the 
Dark Arena?   3-1-0 isn't so shabby!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will 
pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in MORYA is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
MORYA?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Well I didn't think it would be this guy, but he is a tough one.... -- Vaidisava

The ape frightened me, and...well...I'm sorry.... -- Sharapova

Lorvandis -- I sent you Xanax; I thought you needed some sedative! -- Sharapova

Michael -- I had to cut down my costs a little, so I retired from arena 83, but I
am staying here.  Good luck to you in arena 83! -- Le Pentarque

Surgical -- You're correct.  It's hard to believe and I'm already of the opinion that
you meant exactly what you did.  We'll definitely have to discuss this at a future
meeting. -- Candace

Stormdance -- Just when things were getting interesting you had to go and do that.
Talk about spoiling the moment.  Perhaps it was better for you that things ended as
they did, when they did. -- Pug

Velvet Finish -- Lucky for you that my P in tactics was mistaken for a D.  Even so, I
gracefully but begrudgingly accept my loss. -- Pug

Our turn envelope burst open in the post office (or so I'm told, I wasn't there), and
a lot of turns fell out.  Some--not all--of the fights and other pages showed up at
the guildhouse about five days later.  If there's something missing from our
personals, blame it on the post office, okay?  We're doing our best here. -- Jorja,
Dodge Bullets

"The battle begins amid the crowd's approval."  Well, of course.  How could they NOT
approve and still be here?

Scarlet Rose -- Oh, come ON, what's the deal with the sand?  You didn't knock me
down, which you have to do FIRST if you're going to do more than kick sand on my
feet.  Of course, with you being a basic cat, I guess I can figure what you're
meaning with the whole "kicking the sand" thing.  Well, just eat it, babe.  I may be
mostly a killer of men (and not in the arena), but I can still make your life heck.
-- Mankiller

Xanax -- Are you a plant genus, or a drug doing something people really don't need
done? -- Lorvandis
P.S.  Whatever, I nearly DIED of it.  I hate nearly dying, although completely dying
would probably be worse.

Experientia -- Cool!  I never met a Northwight before.  And if I'm going to meet new
people, I like to do it from a position of superiority.  Nothing personal, just good
sense, you know. -- Cloudrider
P.S.  Should we perhaps investigate the Infirmary?  This is the second case of
"nearly dies" in three fights.

Npehish -- "Your deliverance," I don't know.  Mine, YES!  A win, gotta love it. --
Red Hawk

Puma -- Sorry, not today, pussycat. -- Stormdancer

This newsletter is one of the pieces the Post Office found (they have been diligent,
and I thank them), and it looks like someone has been walking on it with cleated
shews.  Odd. -- Jorja

Damascus (Ghost of, now) -- I wasn't avoiding.  You must have been star-crossed or
something. -- Cloudrider

Venom, Mngr Serpent Crue -- If you haven't gotten anything from the Commission with
this newsletter, send a diplo to Scribe, any arena, and I'll see what I can do. --
