                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty 
fighting, but DARK HORSEMEN will tell you 589-676-19 is nothing to laugh at...  
RAISING R'LYEH had cause to celebrate, after COLOROUTOFSPACE got 20 points by beating 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  MARSKOL certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after 
losing to DARK RIVER and losing 4 points in the process!  Now I can't insult 
AILLENDEI, as she has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  
(Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in TRICORUS is taking speech 
lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of AMAZON ELITE, alone and unchallenged.  As 
a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of BLACK CONVENTICLE, so did that 
sorry team shy from AMAZON ELITE If challenges were horses, FUBAR 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 TRICORUS is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports 
for TRICORUS?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Black Clansman -- It was my pleasure and honor to leave the title in your capable
hands. -- Aillendei

Dark Sweet Treat -- I can't seem to resist you, and you aren't even female!  I hate
the things my teammates have to say about this. -- Kurbald

Dark River -- Darn, I just about drowned in that.  But what a way to go, eh? --
Marskol

The Mordant Deserter is a bum. -- Garanh

Dark Sweet Treat -- I don't know what we'll hunt, that's a whole new country for me.
Come along and check it out? -- Galbei
P.S.  I don't think it's rhino country.  Temperate forested hills.  Might be bears.
Deer seem likely.  Wolves?  Painters?  I always wanted to bag an impressionist.

Dark River -- I don't think so!  Though I know of a case where a lunger got an input
error that armed her with a war flail.  She died. -- Marskol

Dark Sweet Treat -- I was in a bad mood. -- Borego Longshanks, Veteran Mercenary

Shroud of Gloom -- It's all part of an elaborate plot. -- Lilianima, Venomous
Concubine

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.
