                                      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 LOST, who pummelled 
CONVICTED THIEF, to pocket 13 points.  RAZZ certainly had a baffled expression on his 
face, after losing to CONVICTED ASSASSIN and losing 19 points in the process!  Those 
who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by JURGENHALEN, of DELVERS, who 
despite a 13-41-0 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.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid RODEKI farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Stud -- I think my earlier suspicions were correct, at least, I think those
suspicions were mine.  And if not, they might as well be!  The Gods of the Arena are
CONSPIRING to keep me from getting that fourteenth win (not to say you aren't tough,

because you ARE) because I'm so damned POPULAR that I "draw in the crowds."  I'm
"doing the arena a public service by hanging around."  What a thrill. -- Jurgenhalen
the Annoyed

I will not lose to the Fratsfa Slave TWICE.  I just had to get set for the fight. --
Rocksnail

Suicide King -- That's moderately embarrassing. -- Joseph George
P.S.  But I will rise above the embarrassment.

Deep Blu -- Aha!  I realize now what it is you serve:  Fricasseed Smurf.  Messy, but
definitely blue.  And they taste AWFUL. -- Khulbadd

Omaha -- Damned sneaky dwarf!  You should know what an anvil is good for. -- Anvil
