                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of LAPUR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Well, Duelmaster MOLLY 
challenged CARDOW HUNTERS' STONETOOTH.  Is a 12-11-0 good enough?  Now I can't insult 
STONETOOTH, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  
(Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are LAPUR's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Is it charming 
personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, 
STONETOOTH is the most challenged warrior.  CONNIE challenged SNOWSHOE!  Who says 
CROC FILES are just a bunch of wimps!  CONNIE of CROC FILES kept hers wits as she won 
victory over SNOWSHOE.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Hmm, one standby and four Crocs?  There seems to be a bias of some sort here.  I
wonder if I need to bribe the handicapper? -- Uncle Wolf, Cardow Hunters

Murry -- Not furry, no, although...what is that fuzzy on my teeth?  Anyway, good try.
Better luck another time. -- Stonetooth
P.S.  Maybe you should challenge somebody else?  If there is anybody else.

Molly -- Good golly, Miss Molly!, as the saying goes.  Thank you very much for those
skills, and I'll be sure to bring them back to you when I can. -- Quick Stinger

Acco -- Ah.  You were "studying learning," I see.  You pay attention very well.  I
commend you. -- Walks Softly and (sometimes) Wins Fights

The Embezzling Scribe left tracks EVERYWHERE.  Talk about careless!  This guy was
EASY. -- Showshoe
P.S.  But I did manage to learn some good stuff from him.

Connie -- Yes, well, maybe YOU need to bribe the handicapper and get yourself some
low-ranked standbys for experience. -- Ladybug the not really hostile

T-Hawk -- Don't know if I'll get an episode in this time or not.  If not, sorry, but
more and better next time? -- the Scribe

               NEW TEAMS IN THE TEMPORARY TOURNAMENT ARENAS (DM 81/83)

Please note that all new teams created at the Face-to-Face were temporarily placed 
in a temporary Tournament Arena, DM 81 or DM 83.  If you requested that your team be 
placed in a specific arena, it has already transferred to that arena.  Any teams not 
transferred out of DM 81 and DM 83 by May 1st will be deleted.  If you have questions 
about any of your teams, please contact Customer Service. -- RSI
