                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  What's a move up by 5 you ask?  (alright, 
maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to ZULU NATION.  Good things 
come to those who fight well, as THE PENTARCHY can attest, moving up by 0.  FLOWERED 
HAMMERZ had cause to celebrate, after GREEN ROSE HAMMER got 26 points by beating 
MANKILLER.  LORVANDIS certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to 
CANDACE and losing 20 points in the process!  XANAX found out that MORYA isn't a 
democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in 
MORYA is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it 
works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in LEGION OF 
DOOM are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a pup with 
its tail between its legs, THE ANIMALS scurried away from LEGION OF DOOM.  Oh, the 
shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and LADY ELMA is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't FILIPINA LADYZ proud!  OPASAN challenged LE PLON!  Who 
says PHANTACITY are just a bunch of wimps!  OPASAN of PHANTACITY kept his wits as he 
was defeated by LE PLON.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Never one to 
advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see THE DISCIPLES retaliate 
against PHANTACITY in bloodfeud!  Justice was served as AMEMAIT(THEDEVOURER) fought 
SECI in bloodfeud.  Well done, THE DISCIPLES!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it 
slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in MORYA is the highlight of my life.  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 MORYA?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Sorry about Sharapova and the bloodfeud.  I don't know why Vaidisova and her missed
the last turn?  They were perhaps at Wimbledon.... -- Le Pentarque

Trooper Ted -- Wind sprints.  Or fight more slowly.  I mean, sure, I'm great, but
you've got to be better than you showed! -- Lorvandis

Green Rose Hammer -- It figures you'd be a guy.  It's guys like us who breed green
roses, just to see if we can.  The babes all go for things like "pretty" and "sweet-
scented."  They don't understand the challenge. -- Stormdancer

Owl -- Good thing for YOU that you're an animal, or a bird, anyway, instead of a man.
I was getting hungry. -- Mankiller
P.S.  Not to EAT a man, hungry for a kill.  You know.

Udri -- Drat.  Good fight. -- Cloudrider
P.S.  Note to self:  Remember to bribe the handicapper in order to prevent such
matchups.

Armadillo -- Hmm, not the style I would have expected of you.  Once you get some
experience, I can see that you're going to be a troublemaker. -- Red Hawk

Sharapova -- Oh, is that what it was for?  I probably shouldn't have fed it to the
favored (by others) horse in the last race, then, should I? -- Lorvandis

Pug -- Way it goes.  There seems to be a lot more money in rain. -- Stormdancer

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
