                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  THE FAMILY had cause to celebrate, after SJORDHAL got 15 points by 
beating SOLDIER 2.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, SJORDHAL was winsome, 
after beating SOLDIER 2 and seeing him lose 9 points.  Like a flirtacious debutante, 
VEASTIAN's Duelmaster THOMAS FOWLER found himself the man of the hour, being "invited 
to dance" 2 times!  The arena was more crowded than usual this time, as ETTORE HSIDAR 
faced VEASTIAN's Duelmaster.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed 
by ETTORE HSIDAR, of TERMAGANT VOTARY, who despite a 13-10-1 couldn't overcome 
VEASTIAN's Number 1.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week 
and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  My love of complete Spyreports dictates that 
I note the mismatched fight, DRACO EL TANNJN and KURESSA D'GEN.  Are TERMAGANT VOTARY 
unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I thought DRACO EL TANNJN showed great skill 
and promise when he subdued KURESSA D'GEN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
SOLDIER 4 of MEDAL OF HONOR 27 spared TORANJ (5-14-0) from having to lose any more 
fights.  What's your next plan, THE FAMILY?  Charity is unknown in VEASTIAN, and 
rightly so.  MEDAL OF HONOR 27 exacted their revenge against TERMAGANT VOTARY.  Ask 
not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in VEASTIAN is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Ettore Hsidar -- Good thing my ego isn't involved here, isn't it?  Glad you made that
a fast one. -- Kuressa D'Gen

Bengal -- I don't understand how--  Oh, you're a golem.  Well, that explains a lot,
such as the way you snatched the sword from my hand, the helm from my head, and went
on to fight with them sticking to you (the sword, alas, by its flat).  But you have
to realize that your real tool to victory was that personal identification number.
Four fours!  Amazing, and very powerful. -- Sjordhal

Timber Wolf -- Bad Dog! -- J'Korou

Lion -- Like I'd get in a bathtub with you?  As if! -- Toranj

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
