                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for ZIG, who pummelled 
KARTIKAYA, to pocket 16 points.  JITNEY JOHNNY certainly had a baffled expression on 
his face, after losing to DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and losing 8 points in the process!  
TORCHLIGHT KID successfully staved off a grab for the roses by BENT FENDER of 
JINDA-BAN.  Does CLIFFHOME have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it 
one team in CLIFFHOME is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in CLIFFHOME would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for CLIFFHOME?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Utano -- Good Gods of the Wheel, man!  Don't lie down in front of me, the impulse to
run over you is well nigh irresistible! -- Bent Fender

Bertha -- Madam, a fine figure of a woman such as yourself is enough to give any man
pause.  And in the arena, of course, a pause is just asking for trouble. -- Kartikaya

Zig -- I don't think I'm going to find a patch for that zag you ripped in my hide.
Ouch. -- Lum Busby

Zag -- I don't propose to take you anywhere, woman.  Unless you want to go, and then,
ah, then we can negotiate it. -- Jitney Johnny

I don't know why this Mordant Deserter dude was coming on to me, but I don't allow
that kind of thing. -- Thea Dozzier

26 August 09
     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
