                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  RAISING R'LYEH had cause to celebrate, after 
FEAR OF THE DARK got 25 points by beating SARALAI.  A certain someone should cut down 
on the drinking and practice more, after losing 7 points to KALMBARGH.  (Discrete 
enough, UP FROM THE SEA?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
VARGOI, of DARK HORSEMEN, who despite a 12-10-0 couldn't overcome TRICORUS' Number 1. 
Word has it one team in TRICORUS is taking speech lessons to try to bore their 
opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in DARK 
HORSEMEN are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman 
of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of RAISING R'LYEH, so did that sorry team shy 
from DARK HORSEMEN If challenges were horses, TIALVAI GRAYWIND could open up a fast 
food joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
The warriors at DARK HORSEMEN stable were more sober than  usual, after SARALAI's 
demise at the hands of FEAR OF THE DARK.  FEAR OF THE DARK, don't make any long term 
plans!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed 
simile, I now bid TRICORUS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Coloroutofspace -- Aha!  I thought a diffraction grating would organize you! --
Saralai

Bladerunner -- That's just as bad as running with scissors, and well you know it. --
Vargoi
P.S.  And if you don't, you should.

Voices in My Head -- It doesn't do any good for you to keep hitting my head, you
aren't going to be able to knock those voices out. -- Garanh

A Fratsfa Slave?  That's practically insulting. -- Tialvai Graywind
P.S.  Although a win and a skill is not to be sneezed at.

The Osksi Noble is pathetic, but then, we all knew that. -- Kalmbargh

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
