                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ILLIS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at IMPROVED 
ILLUSION left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by CHAPEL 
ROCK.  Good show!  Those betting on TEAM TOMORROW lost their shirt, as TEAM TOMORROW 
lost their fighting abilities:  2-3-0.  What's a move up by 7 you ask?  (alright, 
maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to HELTER SKELTER.  VILE 
REAVERS posted a nice gain, to come in 3rd.  Everybody loves a winner...  VILE 
REAVERS had cause to celebrate, after BRANA GOREFANG got 36 points by beating RSI CS. 
Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, HAGGAI was winsome, after beating 
SKARP-HEDIN and seeing him lose 14 points.  Duelmaster LONDON QUIREBOY from CHAPEL 
ROCK is going for the gold, as he Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's SHEWISH GIANT.  
Ooh, the excitement!  LONDON QUIREBOY successfully staved off a grab for the roses by 
SHEWISH GIANT of DARK ARENA.  Does ILLIS 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!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in ILLIS avoid SEA DOGS.  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, HELTER SKELTER scurried away from SEA DOGS.  Oh, the shame!  Is it 
charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, 
DUFF is the most challenged warrior.  As a confidence booster, MASON THUNDERSTRIKE 
challenged LEONOVNA, down 26 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare 
time, MASON THUNDERSTRIKE?  MASON THUNDERSTRIKE overcame LEONOVNA.  The whole thing 
leaves a bitter memory.  Willing to win at any cost is UMI, who challenged JUDAS 
PRIEST, 10 points junior.  Our sympathies, JUDAS PRIEST!  I thought UMI showed great 
skill and promise when she was bested by JUDAS PRIEST.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  SHEWISH GIANT 
in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for LONDON QUIREBOY of CHAPEL ROCK.  Maybe that 
certain serving girl(?) at The Dripping Blade will be!  Perhaps VILE REAVERS were the 
only ones left untouched by RSI CS demise.  Can anyone ever take his place?  Or do I 
exaggerate?  More than one waitress at The Dripping Blade was spilling more drinks 
than usual last week, as JOEL's early demise became known.  What will TEAM TOMORROW 
do???  Charity is unknown in ILLIS, and rightly so.  ISLE OF SKYE exacted their 
revenge against SEA DOGS.  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must 
needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ILLIS farewell-- Novgorodny 
Vir

All -- For a Deathfest--things have been pretty quiet around old Illis.  Three non-DA
deaths in the last three turns?  Are you folks fighting with pugle sticks? -- The
Ocelot of Observations, Kat

Great.  With the recent team defections, Kathouse is in the familiar cellar.  "Oh no!
We suck again!" -- Kat...at least we're in the top 20....

Death Fest Fanatics -- The next issue of the DM 47 newsletter should contain the
information as to why Hammer has been silent and/or behind on correspondence and
contest updates.  Should have run last cycle, but Sue sent me an Email that the
Spotlight would run next cycle! -- Hammer/Your Death Fest Host

Sorry no personals from us last time, we were fully occupied moving house. --
Islanders

London Quireboy -- I dunno whether to compliment your singing or buy paper from you.
I think I'll go with the singing, as I like my paper in big reams. -- Duff
P.S.  Congratulations.

Wise Old Wayne -- Hmm, needs garlic. -- Wimpira

Haggai -- What do you mean, I can win tomorrow?  Tomorrow isn't a fight day! -- Jan
Pearl

Fearless Confession -- That's h'a lucky number you 'ave.  Care to trade? -- 'Ammer

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

29 Jun 2005
The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
