                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon RODEKI, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  COLOR ME SUAVE had cause to celebrate, after KARMIC 
KUDZU got 13 points by beating KHALHUMS DWARF.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, ONE EYED JACK was winsome, after beating ANVIL and seeing him lose 3 points.  
The arena was more crowded than usual this time, as VEAL CHOP faced RODEKI's 
Duelmaster.  In RODEKI, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a 
new Duelmaster, VEAL CHOP.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls 
and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     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.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, VENETIAN CINQUE scurried away from DELVERS.  Oh, 
the shame!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Our congratulations to No Pair. -- Harby and the Delvers

One Eyed Jack -- And you could only see half of it! -- Joseph George

Suicide King -- Well, of course!  Winning is dangerous.  You win, you move up in the
ranks and skillful gladiators try to kill you!  Better to stay low. -- Khulbadd

No Pair -- I wish *I* had a pair.  Of almost anything.  Well, not of black eyes, or
something like that.  A pair of coins to rub together would be good. -- Jurgenhalen

Stud -- You're jealous, I could tell. -- Joseph George
P.S.  Because you have an unbalanced record.

One Eyed Jack -- Probably an Evil Eye.  You just sucked the skills out of me with it.
-- Khulbadd

And for variety, a couple of wins over standbys.  Better than no wins. -- Harby
