                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  BABES had cause to celebrate, after LISA got 
12 points by beating ABALOND EGRAN.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, THE 
USEROUS MERCHANT was winsome, after beating ELLIRIN IMBRAY and seeing her lose 11 
points.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by CHAENY GROVE, of 
MIDDLE WAY 17, who despite a 8-6-0 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.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
JHANS would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  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

Lisa -- Actually, it was my teammate Carlin that I was really mad at.  The things he
said about half-elves!  I'm no magpie, dammit. -- Chaeny Grove
P.S.  More of a mockingbird, I think.
P.P.S.  Ah, I forgot that what I set out to say was that it wasn't you who stirred me
up, just, it was you who caught the end result.  That's life, isn't it?  And the
office boy probably kicked the cat.

Sherry -- What?  Of course I'm not interested in wine.  What would be the point?  A
gladiator who drinks heavily is a gladiator who loses heavily, and I've got enough
problems already.  I did take up quilting, as I indicated I might last time, and do
you know what happened?  The Infirmary drafted me!  They said I "sew a tidy seam."
Bah.  No way am I going to lower myself to making igors. -- Ellirn Imbray
P.S.  If it is lowering.  Hard to tell.

The Ambitious Guard talked a good fight, but no way am I going into a cellar alone
with him to sample a rare cask of Amontillado.  I have a bad feeling about it, which
is a shame, because I've always wanted to try some of that Amontillado stuff. --
Abalond Egran

The Fratsfa Slave isn't Fratsfan, no surprise there.  I understand that Fratsfans are
now an endangered group, and I don't suppose a small arena like this can afford a
real one.  And being of a crude and cloddish nature, I don't suppose he could help
that but he wasn't even TRYING, he had no conversation at all.  A waste of my time.
-- Dencie Hillis

The Convicted Thief is STILL going after my snuffboxes!  What a fool, and what a
persistent fool at that.  Could it be that he's "pre-sold" them to some other
collector?  I'm going to have to look into this.  It could get to be a problem if I
don't head it off at the pass. -- Carlin Granz

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS

MARY bested CHAENY GROVE in a crowd pleasing 1 minute Title fight.
ELLIRIN IMBRAY was unbelievably bested by THE USEROUS MERCHANT in a 2 minute battle.
LISA handily defeated ABALOND EGRAN in a 1 minute one-sided match.
DENCIE HILLIS vanquished RIRORNI SPY in a 1 minute gory mismatched brawl.
CARLIN GRANZ was narrowly defeated by AMBITIOUS GUARD in a 2 minute bloody match.
