                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for SALSANE, who pummelled LONG-N-SLIM, to pocket 22 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 14 points to SALSANE.  (Discrete enough, LONG-N-SLIM?) Out with the old, in 
with the new.  Enter VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, handily defeating STUD.  With 126 points, 
OMAHA of DEALER'S CHOICE takes the position of RODEKI's Duelmaster.  So who was the 
warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got 
a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are RODEKI's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in RODEKI avoid DELVERS.  The 
warriors of DELVERS found their efforts at combat frustrated as THE SOVEREIGN 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for 
fifteen minutes, and JOSEPH GEORGE is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't 
DELVERS proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid RODEKI farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Man, finally.  I thought my invite would never come.  I know you guys are tired of
seeing me up here at the top of the rankings.  Well, I'm out of here at last. -- One
Eyed Jack

13(1)-14-9-13-21-4-11 GA  low/low  21-4-0 and retired.  Adios, all. -- OE J

BLU -- Come on up... the weather's fine. -- Omaha

Delvers -- Question:  Are you trying to win the award for most mail outs?
Calculating your win/loss total says 34 yrs?  That's impressive--just wondering your
logic--that's all. -- Scorpio

Anyone might happen to know where Jorja is hiding?  I'd like her to come out and
play. -- Scorpio

Scorpio -- Greetings back at you. -- Harby, Delvers

Our congratulations to One-Eyed Jack. -- Harby and the Delvers

Eight standbys (not counting the Dark Arena), and we only got ONE.  Is this fair?
No!  We should have gotten at least two, and maybe THREE.  Still, we managed a three
two out of it all, and this is not bad.  We'll TAKE it. -- Jurgenhalen, for the
Delvers

Deep Blu -- I would never eat with golems. -- Joseph George
P.S.  I am good ore, NOT a piece of waste rock.  If you want to see trash rock, look
at Jurgenhalen.  What's he trying to do, hit one hundred fights before graduating?
Bah!
