                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, 
observe WRESTLMANIACS.  Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop by 7!  What's a move up by 6 
you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to 
CRYSTAL PALACE.  The boys at WORLDLY DECLINE are walking tall, as they are ranked 6th 
on their first try!  Going for the Duelmaster soon?  Practice pays for MOPT, who 
pummelled EARTHQUAKE EXCUSE, to pocket 25 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, MOPT was winsome, after beating EARTHQUAKE EXCUSE and seeing it lose 20 
points.  Well, Duelmaster TRIPLE-X challenged RED DOG GANG's RISHTEKE.  Is a 13-3-0 
good enough?  TRIPLE-X successfully staved off a grab for the roses by RISHTEKE of 
RED DOG GANG.  Does IAYE have no one talented enough to dethrone her?  Word has it 
one team in IAYE is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     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 LOVE LETTERS 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with 
its tail between its legs, LENPROS scurried away from LOVE LETTERS.  Oh, the shame!  
Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever 
it is, BIGFOOTS is the most challenged warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in IAYE would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid IAYE farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
