                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Good things come to those who fight well, as 
MEN OF STEEL can attest, moving up by 0.  MEN OF STEEL had cause to celebrate, after 
NICHOLAS got 21 points by beating BUGS.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 15 points to NICHOLAS.  (Discrete enough, 
BUGS?) DROXINE found out that ROCANIS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to 
be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in ROCANIS is using psychics to predict 
wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of MEN OF STEEL should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of THEM, so did that sorry team shy from MEN OF STEEL 
Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and JIM DASHER is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't MEN OF STEEL 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 ROCANIS would I avoid!   
     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.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
ROCANIS?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

One-four.  Do you get the idea we should maybe be in some other line of business?
Maybe we should be motivational speakers.  Well, there are days like this, into each
life some losses must fall, all that sort of thing.  All I can say is, "Thank the
gods for standbys!"  Rirorni Soldiers I can beat, but who knows about managed
gladiators? -- Denna Feyl, team victor
