                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JHANS, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in JHANS, with changing loyalties, 
changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--MINDSOVERMATTER.  Practice 
pays for ROUSSEAU, who pummelled KYRA, to pocket 16 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, MIRIAM was winsome, after beating SALLI VOSS and seeing her lose 
12 points.  PATCH successfully staved off a grab for the roses by CONVICTED ASSASSIN 
of JHANS.  Does JHANS have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who was the 
warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got 
a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in JHANS avoid BABES.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the 
"warriors" of MINDSOVERMATTER, so did that sorry team shy from BABES If challenges 
were horses, ORVAL RAS could open up a fast food joint!  Willing to win at any cost 
is SHERRY, who challenged ORVAL RAS, 8 points junior.  Our sympathies, ORVAL RAS!  I 
thought SHERRY showed great skill and promise when she overcame ORVAL RAS.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Forgive and forget is not my motto.  Take heed, MIDDLE WAY 13, as PORTAR SHAW's death 
remains unavenged.  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body 
parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in JHANS would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in JHANS is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Miriam -- Again we meet.  Well, okay, last time it was Orval, but still.  I know you
only seek us out for the skills we teach, but that's okay, it makes us feel useful.

Sherry -- A cute little thing like you, no way I could hack at you.  It just isn't in
me. -- Orval Ras

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
