                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  AS FAR AS SIAM?  Who?  BEYOND THE PALE is the 
top team these days, buddies!  Practice pays for CAN-BEAR HUGGER, who pummelled 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, to pocket 16 points.  MARION BARRY certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to O. POSTE and losing 10 points in the process! 
Well, Duelmaster SPECTRUM Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's ARENAMASTER DIEGO.  Is a 
16-7-4 good enough?  The crowds were amazed this turn, as ARENAMASTER DIEGO killed 
the Duelmaster, SPECTRUM, leaving AS FAR AS SIAM in mourning.  The audience got their 
money's worth, as they witnessed PISTON HURRICANE attain the throne at the cost of 
SPECTRUM's life!  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?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in BEYOND 
THE PALE are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a pup 
with its tail between its legs, AS FAR AS SIAM scurried away from BEYOND THE PALE.  
Oh, the shame!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Sentinel -- Actually, I remember the Taco Gods quite well!  I guess I can expect my
w/l percentage to drop quite soon!  Cheers. -- Huckle Cat

Arnie -- People always say that I'm anti-Shewish, but I can assure you that it's not
true!  Heck, some of my best friends are Shews!  Even one of my teammates is a Shew.
Ok, ok, so I once stormed the headquarters of the Shewish Defense League one time.
But it was a mistake, a juvenile prank, honest!! -- Spectrum

Blonde Grenade -- Well, I'm not quite sure what was responsible for that outburst!  I
was running at 3 OE.  Did you slip me a mickey prior to the match? -- Phantasmagoria

The Mad Carrot -- Indeed you are.  Totally insane.  I've known it all along.  It's
because you're short.  There's something about those low altitudes that scrambles the
brains. -- Arnie El Shew, tall and sane

Vanchen d'Arens, Merchant Accused of Usery -- Well, if you're not a userer, can you
prove it?  Yeah, yeah, I know, proving a negative is very difficult.  Try. -- Dark
Lenora

Phantasmagoria -- Drat.  I thought you were just a figmint.  And then you hit me.
Ouch! -- Blonde Grenade
P.S.  I have a great recipe for figmints.  Come on by and help me make some!

Farnok Bogg, nominally captured Orc -- So why did you go for the nominal capture?
There must be better stuff to do than be a standby. -- Jenipher

Can-Bear Hugger -- You actually hug bears?  (shudder)  No way I'd get into something
like THAT!  Bears have no couth.  They never brush their teeth or trim their nails.
Or wash. -- O. Poste

of the Crimson Alliance and the Crimson Brotherhood (which was composed of former CA
members).  I've been out of the game for many (at least 5) years.  I would like to
hear from anyone who remembers me, as well as any Alliance that is seeking to add
experienced managers to their roster.  Contact me at:
