                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in JHANS, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--EVER AFTER.  He who laughs last didn't 
get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe BABES.  Last week they got 
0-2-0 to drop by 4!  What's a move up by 6 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  
Cause for celebration, according to IRON TIGERS.  UNKNOWNS posted a nice gain, to 
come in 2nd.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for CONCRETE, who pummelled 
PINK BEAR, to pocket 21 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 16 points to CONCRETE.  (Discrete enough, PINK BEAR?) 
In JHANS, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new 
Duelmaster, MANICOUAGAN.  Word has it one team in JHANS is using psychics to predict 
wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of UNKNOWNS 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with 
its tail between its legs, EVER AFTER scurried away from UNKNOWNS.  Oh, the shame!  
If challenges were horses, KNOCKED UP! could open up a fast food joint!  SHIAVONA 
challenged PONGLENUS!  Who says ERRATA are just a bunch of wimps!  SHIAVONA of ERRATA 
kept his wits as he was slain by PONGLENUS.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Death in the arena!  In a cheap quest for a cheap victory, PONGLENUS faced 
SHIAVONA in an uneven fight.  ERRATA, we expect bloody revenge!  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and 
an overtaxed simile, I now bid JHANS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

19 August 2003
     Citizens of Ghea (only the ignorant fail to note Lirith Kai is not in Alastari),
no new day is rising, but the sun is setting on just another beautiful evening.
While you were sleeping, an irksome rabble has entered the always fair Aruak City.
Of course they fought alongside our warriors, most not so treasured, as all
gladiators do.  They drank with themselves, and slept with themselves.  Whether they
had masks, who cares.
     Warriors, don't be afraid.  For years Aruak has been one of the safest cities in
Ghea, and that custom has been continually cultivated, and will continue to be by
those who have called it home for years and those who live, fight, and die by the
same ethics.  There is no contest, nor has there ever needed to be one for many
years.  A conflict of personalities has arisen, and the city has been 'invaded' by
pests.
     Any rules that are annouced will be purely for the joy of the lemmings' own
little world.  Those who are being targeted have no interest in participating except
to defend the integrity of an arena that is different from others.  Whether you
choose to come to Aruak, do it for your own reasons, not theirs.
    Competing in Aruak City has never been for the faint of heart or the weak willed.
Combat is combat, wherever you go.  Blood will flow as always, and now many innocents
will be caught in the middle, but those who defend Aruak's traditions never target
those who bring respect of Aruaki customs with them to our home.
    So ignore the private ranting announcement brought by the stuporous
Frothingsloshers.  If you choose Aruak City, do not choose it for an unsanctioned and
bogus 'contest', choose it for the tradition.  Choose it because Aruak is different.
