                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of FRATSFA.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at 
WEATHER left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by THE CHOSEN 
ONES.  Good show!  COURTS OF CHAOS had cause to celebrate, after SWAYVIL got 11 
points by beating TENNESSE SMITH.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, XEENA was 
winsome, after beating TONIO SALAGAZA and seeing him lose 1 points.  Those who hoped 
for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by M. CHARDINEE, of FRATSFA, who despite a 
0-0-0 couldn't overcome FRATSFA'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.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Those who owe GRAFFITI of BASH BROS ROAD SIGN money and had written him off, take 
note:  he'S BACK FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Oh hard!  that to strike a 
flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid FRATSFA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Abu Jr. -- You may be better than me today, but I'd bet I have a brighter future
ahead of me than you do!  Assur was surprised the commission recognized me as a Lord
Protector.  He says something about not having enough PPs or some such nonsense.
Regardless, I'm off to the Isle of the Eye to hopefully prove Assur right. --
Graffiti

Our congratulations to Graffiti.  Once he's out of town, we may get some of these
exterior walls cleaned up, not to mention the signs. -- Jorja and those who walk the
Middle Way

And, we salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja et al

Two-one?  Not bad.  Although it could be interesting to find those long-missing
replacements.  Sure, they'd lose a lot, but everyone starts that way.  On our teams,
anyway. -- Ellis Tate
