                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ROCANIS, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  MEN OF STEEL?  Who?  MIDDLE WAY 20 is the top team 
these days, buddies!  Practice pays for GASTON IPPS, who pummelled KULGAN, to pocket 
22 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, RIRORNI ASSASSIN was winsome, 
after beating MOE FROSTTOOTH and seeing him lose 21 points.  RIRORNI SPY found out 
that ROCANIS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So 
who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds 
like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of STRAIGHT UP THUG 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of INCONSISTENT FURY, so did that sorry team shy from 
STRAIGHT UP THUG  
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ROCANIS is the highlight of my life.  As the 
seasons change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to 
leave this place.  ROCANIS, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my 
bill at The Grub & Rub Bar and Bistro.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Draken-Korin -- Well, of course.  You are a man of STEEL, I'm a man of some kind of
low-grade pot metal. -- Gerhart Ervin

Kaspar -- Given the season, I was *hoping* for a "friendly ghost," or some such.
Boy, was I wrong! -- Mervin Oldes
P.S.  A skill would have been acceptable.
P.P.S.  Have you ever known any gladiator, carried to the Infirmary, who says, "Boy,
I really like hospitals!  I want to prolong my stay here!"?

Frankie Too -- It says this fight pleased the crowd, but no one was more pleased than
me.  As the only winner on our team (AND the official favorite of the fans), I get it
easy this week. -- Gaston Ipps

Droxine -- That was embarrassing.  I'm not going to think about it. -- Ferria Hough

Hika Sugar -- I don't seem to handle sugar well.  I'd ask you to "get thee behind
me," but you'd probably stab me in the back. -- Denna Feyl
P.S.  Besides, if you were behind me, I couldn't keep an eye on you, and I think I'd
better!
