                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Those betting on CAESAR'S THUGS lost their shirt, as CAESAR'S THUGS 
lost their fighting abilities:  0-0-0.  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's 
that for a perceptive observation?) as RILL'S GCSC2 can attest...  NOTORIOUS posted a 
nice gain, to come in 3rd.  Everybody loves a winner...  DEVIL ADVOCATES had cause to 
celebrate, after TED ICKENS got 22 points by beating NAZRIPTHA.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 10 points to 
FREEWHEEL BURNIN'.  (Discrete enough, DEMETREN?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster 
were disappointed by JUSTICE, of ANGELS OF PAIN, who despite a 22-15-1 couldn't 
overcome ARVAT's Number 1.  Word has it one team in ARVAT is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of FLAMING DEATH, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of FLAMING DEATH found their efforts at combat frustrated as RILL'S GCSC2 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, 
SARLOW could open up a fast food joint!  As a confidence booster, UNITED challenged 
DEMMELL, down 20 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, 
UNITED?  Warriors of ARVAT!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base 
challenge of UNITED?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Alas, poor DEMMELL.  We all know RILL'S GCSC2's retirement plan isn't the best 
in the world.  UNITED, may you be as missed when your time comes.  I get a special 
thrill from seeing innocent boy like NAZRIPTHA from KILLER INSTINCTS get pointlessly 
killed.  Good show, TED ICKENS!  (No mercy.) 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!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  I shall 
return!-- Novgorodny Vir

I am feeling very disillusioned today. -- The Old Man

Old Man -- Sorry if we missed your arrival.  Welcome and the best of luck to you here
in Arvat. -- the Devil Advocates

Nothing like holiday mail delays to thin out the arena ranks for a turn or so!

United -- Congrats on your invite and good riddance!  You freaky fast wall of steels
confuse the heck out of me. -- I.M. Cytin

Looks like our Greek friends are holding out until after they get tourney fights--we
wish we could go! -- Devil Advocates

Rumor of the week:  Caesar was seen frequenting the public baths this week after a
run in with a skunk!

Rage -- Bad idea, that.  Clouds the mind when you most need it clear, which is to
say, in battle.  Although I admit there have been some times I've wished for a
clouded mind in battle, such as when I'm getting the worst of it and really, really
hurting. -- Sarlow
P.S.  But it isn't RAGE I turn to then.

Gremlin -- Ah, but I, too, can do the "flaming death" stuff.  A little too much of me
around, a few too many seeds in an unprepared mouth, and, presto, flaming death.
Trust me on this. -- Peter Piquin

The Userous Merchant tried to rent me a fishnet.  He's an idiot.  Everyone--surely!--
knows that I don't use a NET to fish.  And if I DID, I wouldn't RENT one.  Gods. --
Heron
P.S.  All that standing around knee deep in cold (at this season) water makes me
really testy.  The Userous Merchant nearly died, and all I have to say to that is,
"Too bad he didn't get nearer."

Anguish -- It gets to ya, doesn't it?  But, listen, cherish that bed rest while you
can, because I bet you anything once you get back to your guildhouse, it'll be
practice practice practice.  Managers seem to think we're made of iron.  Definitely a
delusion. -- Geroge Roft

The Embezzling Scribe had the most intriguing triple-entry system of bookkeeping....
But, ultimately, it wasn't good enough to pass an audit. -- Fillis Bouy

18 December 2006
Let it be known that Buddy Lee is no longer a member of The Company of Brothers,
T.C.B.  I have resigned as of 10-23-06.  Thank you.
