                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TRICORUS, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for UP FROM THE SEA, who pummelled 
GARANH, to pocket 22 points.  GARANH certainly had a baffled expression on his face, 
after losing to UP FROM THE SEA and losing 14 points in the process!  VARGOI found 
out that TRICORUS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here! 
Word has it one team in TRICORUS 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!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of DARK HORSEMEN, alone and unchallenged.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, RAISING R'LYEH scurried away from DARK 
HORSEMEN.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and CARGO is it 
right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't SEA DOGS proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in TRICORUS would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid TRICORUS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Coloroutofspace -- I suppose I should be glad I survived that.  Well, to tell you the
truth, I *am* glad I survived that.  Next time, you can have a go at Vargoi. --
Garanh

Up from the Sea -- Thank you so much, this has put me closer to fighting that killer
Coloroutofspace, which I could stand not to do.  Ah, well, whatever happens, there it
is. -- Vargoi

Cargo -- Some interesting stuff there, but I am not going to start a cult about it.
-- Hasarch

This Convicted Thief dude is fairly puny, isn't he? -- Barochdal

Ah.  It isn't always going to be this easy, is it? -- Karranvai

Coloroutofspace -- Graduate already. -- the surviving Dark Horsemen
