                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Good things come to those who fight well, as 
SHREDDERS can attest, moving up by 0.  BRAID found out being RODEKI's Duelmaster 
isn't all nuts and berries, receiving 4 challenges!  You could cut the tension with a 
scimitar as TANTRUM YOGA of COLOR ME SUAVE met the Duelmaster.  BRAID successfully 
staved off a grab for the roses by TANTRUM YOGA of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Does RODEKI have 
no one talented enough to dethrone it?  So who's the team that's been walking into 
taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in DELVERS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of SHREDDERS, so did that sorry team shy 
from DELVERS COMMON SENSE challenged ELIFAS KONT!  Who says INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP are 
just a bunch of wimps!  COMMON SENSE of INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP kept his wits as he 
bested ELIFAS KONT.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Will DELVERS 
never avenge HONDURKAN's death???  Oh brave(?) new world, that has such people in it! 
'Tis new to me!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be 
wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in RODEKI is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  RODEKI, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill 
at The Welcome Wench.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Roadkill -- And I feel like it, after that fight.  Ouch. -- Gastaigne
P.S.  Or maybe I should say... ugh?  "Ouch" sounds a little... soft.  And the
constant dominance struggles among orcs don't allow for much in the way of softness.

Why Do You Ask Me? -- For the amusement of seeing you struggle to find the answer, of
course. -- Elifas Kont

Hendrix -- You dwarves have it easy.  Nobody looks funny at YOU if you win a "slim"
victory.  An orc has to do "robust" for a minimum.  Overwhelming.  Crushing is good,
too. -- Fellerman
P.S.  It isn't easy being an orc, you know.

Armored Echo -- You make my head hurt. -- Igor Jones

Kws -- How do you pronounce that?  Even the steward who announced our fight couldn't
figure it out. -- Isengalen
