                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of JHANS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for THE 
LIMITER, who pummelled RASH VERDICT, to pocket 8 points.  Those who hoped for a new 
Duelmaster were disappointed by COME ON, of ERRATA, who despite a 8-2-0 couldn't 
overcome JHANS' Number 1.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last 
week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, COME ON is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in JHANS is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I 
now bid JHANS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
