                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ARVAT, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you 
didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to THE WILLBURYS.  LUROCIAN GUARD had 
cause to celebrate, after ROGER THE BRAVE got 17 points by beating DOMINATION.  
DOMINATION certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to ROGER THE 
BRAVE and losing 10 points in the process!  LARA found out being ARVAT's Duelmaster 
isn't all nuts and berries, receiving 2 challenges!  Well, Duelmaster LARA challenged 
ANGELS OF PAIN's MURDER.  Is a 28-19-0 good enough?  In ARVAT, nothing is permanent 
(except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, MURDER.  Word has it one team 
in ARVAT is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet 
it works.   
     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 DEVIL ADVOCATES are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  
The warriors of DEVIL ADVOCATES found their efforts at combat frustrated as DEVIL 
ADVOCATES apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     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.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ARVAT farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Lara -- Another close fight--this time the victory to you...  Perhaps we'll have a
rubber match at some point. -- Nick E. Demus

Mattheu -- Thanks for the skills.  I just keep learning like a sponge.  The boss says
I may get an adepts run at the upcoming tournament. -- Domination

RUMOR OF THE WEEK:  Fishermen about the city report a large number of dead fish and a
great reduction the the numbers and quality of the remaining fish.  Town leaders have
sent requests for aid to nearby cities; seeking alternate food supplies.  No one
knows what is behind the die-off of fish.

Olaf Modeen reports that the Angels of Pain are unwashed!  What can this mean for
Arvat?

Coffee -- It always gives me the jitters.  Very hide to fight effectively, or fish,
for that matter, while jittering. -- Catfish Annie

Item -- Were you excited?  I wasn't. -- Hannanna

MM -- I was going to say, "I like the red ones," but then I realized they're red with
blood.  MY blood.  They aren't so appealing now. -- Fizzgigue

Rose -- Light on the thorns today.  I liked that. -- Psirena

Barry the Bold -- Thank you.  If I had failed to win that one, it would have been
extremely embarrassing. -- Hannamarie
