                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  BLUVALLEY WARRIORS had cause to celebrate, after MARCI FOOTE got 14 
points by beating AMBITIOUS GUARD.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, YVONNE 
was winsome, after beating KATERINA COLLIN and seeing her lose 6 points.  Those who 
hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by MILDRED LEONA, of FANDILS, who 
despite a 20-9-0 couldn't overcome ARDIVENT'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!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of ERRATA, alone and unchallenged.  Like a pup 
with its tail between its legs, FANDILS scurried away from ERRATA.  Oh, the shame!  
If challenges were horses, MILDRED LEONA could open up a fast food joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARDIVENT is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Khisanth -- Congrats on Keelback's TV.  What a ringer!  (wink) -- Fandil The Wise

Keelback -- What a worthy Duelmaster!  Kudos. -- WOF
P.S.  We always enjoy Khisanth's DM Columns.  Perhaps he will let you advise him on
his golf club purchase and then tell us about it in the column?

Lila Deane -- I may have handled you last time, but you proved too much for me this
time.  (sigh)  I like formidable women!  (wink) -- W. D. Purdy

Keelback -- What can I say?  I lost to the superior warrior.  Save the last dance for
me. -- Mildred leona

Ruthless Jaywalker and Veteran Mercenary -- Thanks for being there.  We Fandils
needed SOME wins. -- Monsignor Mark and Earl

Well, I wasn't so lucky.  I LOST to a Virginal Concubine, and I guarantee I know more
about concubining that that witch! -- Yvonne

Hey, Earl, don't you think Yvonne is in trouble?  After all, that is the 2nd NPC she
lost to.  I wonder if she thinks she knows more about jaywalking than Ruthless
Jaywalker, the other NPC loss?  She has only a 10-11 record.  Do you really think
Fandil The Wise will stick with her? -- Mildred Leona

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Fandil The Wise

Huh, Novgorodny Vir makes a big deal out of someone "challenging dead trees."  Does
he think we're stupid?  Of course we challenge dead trees!  The live ones are much
more dangerous. -- Mollie Scot

Assur -- What!  You're LEAVING us again?  Who's going to buss the tables? -- Jorja

We salute the tourney participants, with a special nod to Keelback, who went ten-
three in the Adepts.  No wonder he's hard to dislodge from the title. -- Jorja and
the Bluvalley Warriors

Coral -- Drat.  Even being popular doesn't make up for lsoing to you.  The skills
help a lot, though.  Thanks for that, anyway. -- Katerina Collin

Ron Burgundy -- That was embarrassing. -- Mollie Scot

Antler -- Right, what she said. -- Marci Foote

W.D. Purdy -- Someone had to redeem our team's performance, and that someone turned
out to be me.  (modest smirk)  And you were right there for me to "overpower," too.
Life is good. -- Lila Deane

It would've been more fun to beat up the Beggar if he hadn't been so darned Polite.
On the other hand, I've often wanted to beat up people who were being polite all over
the place and making me look like a clod, so maybe it was a lot of fun anyway.  Lemme
think about this. -- Long Biggar
