                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  JINDA-BAN had cause to celebrate, after 
KORGENDAL FARS got 11 points by beating PERSISTENT BEGGAR.  A certain someone should 
cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 8 points to UNCUT HARE.  
(Discrete enough, FAITH?) Now I can't insult KEVSILESSA KIRO, as she has gloriously 
dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) 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?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in CLIFFHOME is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  CLIFFHOME, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
The Choking Ogre.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Rodents in my park!?!  Call the exterminator! -- Assur

not ideal.  Go in the wild?  Hold it?  Leave the park?  Go in your pants? -- No

No Bathroom -- Yep.  Not till I'm done. -- Nilismarin Salm
P.S.  Doesn't have to be anything fancy, you understand, our plumbing's pretty
primitive back in Karia.

Baskerville Pig -- You could teach more. -- Logranal Maur

Walker -- The trouble with you zombies is that you don't have any conversation.  What
can anyone do with that? -- Kevsilessa Kiro

Surfin' Cow -- You are totally weird. -- Trokressa Salm
P.S.  Anyone who surfs is weird, but a COW?
