                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, 
maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to FERAL LEGION.  FERAL 
LEGION had cause to celebrate, after WERE BEAR got 24 points by beating WORQ.  WORQ 
certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to WERE BEAR and losing 
20 points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
PENELOTHE, of TRADERS OF TROCAR, who despite a 13-11-0 couldn't overcome TROCAR's 
Number 1.  Word has it one team in TROCAR is using psychics to predict wins.  They 
lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
TRADERS OF TROCAR are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As 
a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of JANIX, so did that sorry team shy 
from TRADERS OF TROCAR  
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in TROCAR is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Glum -- Not your fault, it's the Commission flunkies getting even with me for daring
to criticize this "spledidiferous" arena we have.  Ha.  I salute you and happily
leave you to deal with the need for a column.  Or with the disdain for a column, or
whatever attitude you find most becoming.  Like I'd care?  No, seriously, good fight,
especially that spin. -- Penelothe

If this is a warrior-mage, remind me to give thanks to whoever that we aren't
depending on warrior-mages to defend us here in Trocar.  Um...we aren't depending on
them, are we?  And, um, the Rirorni AREN'T coming, are they?  Or the Elves of
Xochithlan, or anyone else? -- Skorindelle

Worq -- I think you must be a refugee from a scrabble game, but that's okay.  You're
a pretty thing anyway.  (edges closer eagerly)  I've got lots more good stuff I could
teach you. -- Daristam

Sorry to be facing you understrength, gladiators of Trocar, but we had a little
problem with the recruiting.  Aside from the usual problem that all the applicants
are physically strange, that is.  It seems that all the Commission flunkies who might
have accepted their paperwork went off to the tourney.  Wretches, every one!  But we
are hoping for the new "warriors" (ha!) to be on the sands this time. -- Jorja,
Traders of Trocar

success in those endeavors.
