     My teammates and I will be taking a break for a few turns.  We expect to be back
after the upcoming Grand Tournament.

Shellback

                                      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.  He who laughs 
last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe BATTLE FROGS SO1.  
Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop by 4!  Practice pays for ARD-RI PENDRAGON, who 
pummelled WARTLESS WITCH, to pocket 19 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, KIELANDOR VENANSINDE was winsome, after beating ELT and seeing him lose 12 
points.  A certain someone saw SHELLBACK at The Don't Drop Inn with the shakes, and 
now he fails to show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  In NIATOLI 
ISLAND, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, 
HEADLESS NORSEMAN.  Word has it one team in NIATOLI ISLAND is taking speech lessons 
to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are NIATOLI ISLAND's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell 
some nasty rumors, the guys in HALLOWIENERS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  
No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of 
HALLOWIENERS, so did that sorry team shy from HALLOWIENERS Is it charming 
personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, 
TAVELSHAN KETHAL is the most challenged warrior.  GWENIVERE challenged TAVELSHAN 
KETHAL!  Who says CLAN PENDRAGON are just a bunch of wimps!  GWENIVERE of CLAN 
PENDRAGON kept hers wits as she was defeated by TAVELSHAN KETHAL.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  NIATOLI ISLAND, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
The Don't Drop Inn.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
