                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Rirorni Assassin.  Typical.

                                      Sourcrab

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for WOLFGORE, who pummelled WOODWORM, to pocket 17 
points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, WOLFGORE was winsome, after beating 
WOODWORM and seeing him lose 15 points.  SOURCRAB successfully staved off a grab for 
the roses by RIRORNI SPY of ROCANIS.  Does ROCANIS have no one talented enough to 
dethrone him?  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!  Perhaps the warriors of BAD APPLES 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of GET, so did that sorry team shy from BAD APPLES If 
challenges were horses, BUCK FEVER could open up a fast food joint!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ROCANIS?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

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.
