                                      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.  POSITIVE 
ALTERNATIVE had cause to celebrate, after DAVID CROWDER got 27 points by beating KING 
COREY.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 23 points to BITT BETRO.  (Discrete enough, ELOWAN?) What can be a greater 
victory?  J'KOROU has taken his place as the top, as VEASTIAN's new Duelmaster.  Word 
has it one team in VEASTIAN is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed 
life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  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.  More important duties call me.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for VEASTIAN?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Jeremy Camp -- Fine.  Be that way. -- J'Korou

Hawk Nelson -- Not how I wanted to leave, but at least I'm leaving.  Good luck to
you. -- Sjordhal

Krystal Meyers -- I would say that me winning my last fight would have been a much
more positive alternative. -- Noriltenne

Umbar Conn III -- Hmm, it looks like a lot of recruiting here-abouts was done at
Shews R Us. -- Bitt Betro

A Beggar?  The crowd gets excited over seeing me defeat a Beggar?  Hmm. -- Senjiro
P.S.  But at least the Commission got over the weird idea that I am a dwarf.  I've
never had a beard in my life!

     If there were supposed to be more personals here, our apologies.  Hal spent a
     night on the tiles, and we're still trying to catch up with the mail.  They
     should, well, they might appear next time.
