                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  DUNGEON CELL had cause to celebrate, after LAZY LOOKOUT got 18 points 
by beating BIG DISAPPOINTMENT.  BIG DISAPPOINTMENT certainly had a baffled expression 
on his face, after losing to LAZY LOOKOUT and losing 15 points in the process!  Those 
who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by DACIMOUSEL, of DELVERS, who 
despite a 15-22-0 couldn't overcome RODEKI's Number 1.  Word has it one team in 
RODEKI is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it 
works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in RODEKI is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for RODEKI?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Chatty Cabalist -- Well!  You chatted, thanks.  I enjoyed reading it.  Sometimes the
silece gets to a person, which is partly why we write personals.  Huh, maybe that's
why they're called personals in the first place?  Nah, that's too logical.  Anyway,
good learning.  I like a student who pays attention. -- Dacimousel

Almost Pretty -- I do not understand this concept "pretty."  You appear very
functional, however, which makes you pleasing to look upon.  Perhaps this is the same
thing?  No, the higher probability is that "pretty" has some marked illogical
content, as most confusing designations do.  Still, I commend you for it, if it is
something for which commendation is appropriate. -- Stonecrusher II

Coldfishfinger -- Ha.  That won't last, not the way the weather is warming up.  Don't
even need global warming, either, just spring.  The water will warm up, and you won't
be a cold fish any longer. -- Eacham
P.S.  Maybe... poached?  That could be interesting.

Ah, these orcs!  They keep trying to get into the Cults, calling themselves Cult

Members in the hopes the name will make it so.  Waste of time, the Cults are too, ah,
racially specific.  They don't take orcs, so the dumb bums just get beat up for
nothing.  Not that I don't enjoy doing it, mind! -- Faroman

Big Disappointment -- Damn straight, you are!  You were supposed to lose that fight,
dummy.  Why don't you go to the Dark Arena? -- Rockhog Jr

Big Disappointment -- Don't mind Junior, he came back as an orc and it made him
testy.  Temperamental, even.  He's a horse's rear. -- Faroman

Chatty Cabalist -- Excuses, that's all you're saying.  Making excuses!  It's a
conspiracy.  You're all out to get me! -- Rockhog

Faroman -- And don't call me "Junior." -- Rockhog
