                                      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 WILLIAM CRAWFORD, who 
pummelled DEATH'S DOORMAN, to pocket 21 points.  A certain someone should cut down on 
the drinking and practice more, after losing 17 points to WILLIAM CRAWFORD.  
(Discrete enough, DEATH'S DOORMAN?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by REIGN OF BLADES, of THE PLAGUE, who despite a 8-5-0 couldn't overcome 
KATI-TEI's Number 1.  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?  Perhaps the warriors of BIRDS should take up some 
hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail between its 
legs, THE PLAGUE scurried away from BIRDS.  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming 
personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, WILLIAM 
CRAWFORD is the most challenged warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     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 KATI-TEI?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Reign of Blades -- A STEEL umbrella, that's what I need.  You completely demolished
the silk one. -- Chericille

William Crawford -- I suppose I shouldn't be wishing for something new in the way of
opponents.  "New" might so easily equal "deadly," after all.  But I could wish for
someone chattier. -- Quinore

That Peasant is a fool.  But then, we knew that. -- Valgard

Blinded by Knowing -- Maybe if you got a seeing-eye dog?  Not allowed in the arena,
probably, but you could try. -- Forandin

Grunt 2 -- And people say *I* am stupid. -- Rambling Ox

Reaper -- (nod)  I know.  I've run enough of them. -- Leeta
P.S.  Some clear to graduation.
P.P.S.  Re the Dwarf in the Box, by the time turn 600 rolls around, we'll have
forgotten, right?  And he'll be stuck in that box.  Works for me.  But the Dangerous
Criminal, aka Ruthless Jaywalker, is worse.

Death's Doorman -- How am I supposed to put on a good match when I never get anything
but a pitiful stipend out of it? -- Shiiz, Veteran Mercenary
