                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir 
to give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays 
for BEAR CREEK HAMMER, who pummelled AMBITIOUS GUARD, to pocket 15 points.  Win some, 
lose some.  Speaking of which, PEEP was winsome, after beating BUCK CREEK HAMMER and 
seeing him lose 6 points.  In NIATOLI ISLAND, nothing is permanent (except Death), 
and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, THE CRIPPLER.  So who's the team that's been 
walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of SUPERIOR FORCES 2Y, alone and 
unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, RAVAGING LORDS scurried 
away from SUPERIOR FORCES 2Y.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, HARE CREEK 
HAMMER could open up a fast food joint!  Mismatched by 10 points, HARE CREEK HAMMER 
was beat by THE CLAW.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought THE CLAW showed great 
skill and promise when he beat HARE CREEK HAMMER.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     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.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.

If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
