                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of VEASTIAN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Like a new team 
fighting for the first time and entering the official rankings, COURT OF CHARLEMAGNE 
got 3-1-0 to come in 4th.  Practice pays for THOMAS FOWLER, who pummelled ETTORE 
HSIDAR, to pocket 16 points.  ETTORE HSIDAR certainly had a baffled expression on 
hers face, after losing to THOMAS FOWLER and losing 11 points in the process!  DRACO 
EL TANNJN successfully staved off a grab for the roses by KURESSA D'GEN of THE 
FAMILY.  Does VEASTIAN have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one 
team in VEASTIAN is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  
I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
THOMAS FOWLER is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't MEDAL OF HONOR 27 
proud!   
     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.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Hal Lasko -- If that isn't just like a man!  To assume that because you ARE a man,
and a big, tall one, okay, a big, tall golem, you can take on a "helpless" little
woman and win?  In the immortal words of Debby Tonte:  As if! -- Kuressa D'Gen

Dolt Dimwit -- You dolt, you weren't supposed to "nearly die"!  Just because you had

to flip that dagger in your off-hand and you couldn't catch it and it pinned your
foot to the sands....  You really are a dolt, aren't you?  I don't suppose you can
help it. -- J'Korou

Dai ze Dai -- You know why the audience groaned their disappointment, don't you?
Because they wanted and expected me to rip your clothes off.  But I'm a gentleman,
and I would prefer to wait for that until we're somewhere private. -- Noriltenne

Soldier 3 -- I suppose when you have no identity, you have to take your satisfactions
where you find them.  Drat. -- Sjordhal

Soldier 1 -- So!  Already the truth is revealed:  I am forced to fight someone with
infinitely more arena experience than I have, and of course I lose the match.  Not
even a skill!  This is cruel, but life is cruel.  I will endure. -- Jantru

Unfortunately, not in silence. -- Jorja

Draco el Tannjn -- Apparently it was enough. -- Kuressa D'Gen

Our congratulations to Draco el Tannjn. -- Jorja and The Family
