                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  FIRE DECK had cause to celebrate, after TORKOAL got 15 points by 
beating PEARL.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, 
after losing 12 points to TORKOAL.  (Discrete enough, PEARL?) SCROD BOY found out 
that CLIFFHOME isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  
Word has it one team in CLIFFHOME 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 FIRE DECK 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with 
its tail between its legs, JEWEL OF THE ORIENT scurried away from FIRE DECK.  Oh, the 
shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and TORKOAL is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't FIRE DECK proud!  Mismatched by 11 points, CONNIE PAKKIT 
was bested by JADE.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought JADE showed great skill 
and promise when she subdued CONNIE PAKKIT.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     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.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid CLIFFHOME farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

I never, ever, took a bath in company with the Convicted Assassin, and I resent the
vile rumors that suggest I did. -- Dasher

How could anyone expect me to defeat a Veteran Mercenary?  He has so much more
experience than I do! -- Riquettie

I take a firm stand on the topic of Dangerous Criminals.  In fact, I take a firm
stand on top of Dangerous Criminals, and they'd better not complain about my weight,
either. -- Connie Pakkit

Leonardo -- Yep, that's an O at the end of your name.  And fool that I was, I thought
it might be a target.  Ah, well, I suppose it was, in a way.  Out there at the end,
where any aim near it was a miss to anything serious. -- Bent Fender

Alonzo -- Sixteen minutes!  I wasn't ready for that. -- Carter Pillar
P.S.  Which is strange, when you think about it.

Laranso, Professional Thief -- But I want my OWN hubcap.  They're special! -- Carter
Pillar

Keallaninin, Ambitious Guard -- Think of me as a small shield. -- Bent Fender

Kablok Krag, Temporarily Captured Orc -- Euwh! -- Connie Pakkit

M. Carlston Chardinee -- Er.  Ah.  Uh, really?  Gee, I hardly know how to answer
that....  Well, um, not dinner at this point, but maybe lunch? -- Dasher

Connie Pakkit -- There will be a reckoning. -- Korrital sun Soard of Illis, Highly
Dangerous
P.S.  Criminality is the label of small minds.

Riquettie -- You seem unfit for this life.  Retire while you can. -- Farlianso'e the
Dark, Veteran of Many Wars

Dasher -- You risk much. -- Gray Shadow of Death, Professional Assassin
