                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ARVAT.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  FISHERMAN'S WHARF 
posted a nice gain, to come in 2nd.  Everybody loves a winner...  Like a new team 
fighting for the first time and entering the official rankings, CHARM CITY HUSTLERS 
got 5-0-0 to come in 3rd.  CHARM CITY HUSTLERS had cause to celebrate, after FILACRIP 
got 14 points by beating ELECTRIC EYE.  ELECTRIC EYE certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to FILACRIP and losing 9 points in the process!  
Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by BASKERVOLE, of FISHERMAN'S 
WHARF, who despite a 14-34-0 couldn't overcome ARVAT's Number 1.  So who was the 
warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got 
a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in SARATOGA GLORY are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As 
a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of CALL THE PRIEST, so did that sorry 
team shy from SARATOGA GLORY  
     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.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARVAT 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 ARVAT?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Killing Machine -- I've paid for MY armor, *I* am not stupid enough--or broke
enough--to buy it on time, but I, too, am glad, as Tassalter was, that you did not
"push it to the limit."  I am not ready to die. -- Baskervole

Argonaut -- An appropriate sort of name for one who would go out in a boat.  (pause
for thought)  I believe the Argo sailed from...Monuntial, I think it was, in 493?  If
you were actually on it, you'd be a bit long in the tooth by now, but as you aren't,
I suppose you were just named for it, eh?  Maybe had an uncle on that venture? --
Boatman Ku

Nautilus -- I consider that comment--the one about me needing to get "exercise
equipment"-- was uncalled for!  I work out and in the guildhouse constantly.
CONSTANTLY.  That's why I do so poorly in the arena, you know, by the time I step out
onto the sands, I'm EXHAUSTED. -- Tassalter
P.S.  Good fight.  Very fast.
P.P.S.  But I'm going to tell Lulu that her "sure defense" against blows to the
belly, her special biscuits, didn't work.  It just made things WORSE.

Desert Fox -- Gosh, it must be really hard on you having to come here where the
climate's so wet!  That's a great Stiff Upper Lip you've got. -- Little Rainbow

Oh, whoopee-doo, a loss to the Ambitious Guard (somebody should smack him down), and
we're oh-fer the turn.  Jorja's going to be so THRILLED.  I think...I'll go fishing.
Yeah, just be out of the house when she gets here. -- Loggerhead

Loggerhead -- Your discernment does you credit, sir.  Mahmartol of Vanzhar is indeed
a wicked and grasping userer.  He is not, however, a Karnhorn spy.  He might be a
Ferencian or Serevadan spy, I certainly wouldn't put it past him, but he's not
Karnhorn.  I am in a position to know. -- Karitjan

Ed. -- I had noticed that.  Which is how I came to be in the arena in the first
place.  You don't think these boobies actually CAUGHT me, do you?  I'm not a
convicted criminal, after all. -- <name withheld by request>

     The way things have been going, you're probably not a criminal at all.  They're
     making people take all sorts of strange names when the fight. -- Ed.
