                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for MENDARLIN VORO, who pummelled FRATSFA SLAVE, to 
pocket 17 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, ASH was winsome, after 
beating TALKS NONSTOP and seeing him lose 8 points.  Those who hoped for a new 
Duelmaster were disappointed by NILISMARIN SALM, of JINDA-BAN, who despite a 14-27-0 
couldn't overcome CLIFFHOME's Number 1.  Word has it one team in CLIFFHOME is using 
psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  I shall 
return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Yes, our children can really put the hurt on those NPCs.  Luckily I can claim to have
nothing to do with that Zombie child that loses to NPCs.  I am a human and don't have
zombie children. -- Assur

     Keep 'em away from the tv, do you?

Zantos -- Indeed, you will be missed.  In a different way than we have missed you
when matched against you.  Good luck on the Isle. -- Jinda-Ban
P.S.  Write personals in Home Guard!  Something to overwhelm the echo.

Assur -- And well they should.  The Embezzling Scribe gets too full of himself. --
Jorja

Zantos -- And one for the road. -- Korgendal Fars

Kali -- I didn't need that, but I guess you did. -- Nilismarin Salm

Zina -- I hope the groundhogs eat you! -- Korgendal Fars

Ash -- Amazing!  I actually defeated a Soul Warrior!  Thanks, it makes my day.  Of
course, defeating ANYBODY would make my day. -- Voronsal Maur

Enoch -- And the last of five fights against Soul Warriors.  No wonder those Bashy
Kids are fighting standbys all the time! -- Mendarlin Voro
