                                      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.  SHEWISH MUNCHIES?  Who? 
YOUNG GUNS is the top team these days, buddies!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  
(alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to YOUNG GUNS.  
Practice pays for BAST, who pummelled BEATIE, to pocket 17 points.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 14 points to BOA.  
(Discrete enough, BABY RUTH?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed 
by KUNG-FU MASTER, of ILLIS, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome ILLIS' Number 1.  
So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees? 
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in ILLIS avoid ISLANDERS.  The warriors of ISLANDERS 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as BEATRICE apparently had more important 
things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and FISHHOOK is it 
right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't ISLANDERS proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Congratulations, HEATH BAR.  The manager of ELDER GODS should have sent ULTHAR to the 
Dark Arena for having a 6-5-1 long ago.  Questions are being raised about the 
disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in ILLIS would I 
avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an 
overtaxed simile, I now bid ILLIS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

     It's possible somebody attempted to send a personal, but all that hal passed
     on to me is seven pages of coding from some kind of health e-newsletter.
     Doesn't seem like the king of thing hal would subscribe to.

We salute the tourney participants, with a nod and a gift of tuna to Beatie, tourney
victor. -- Jorja and the Islanders
P.S.  We HAD the tuna, you see.  We couldn't give it to Shadow, or he wouldn't eat
anything ELSE.  Darn cat.

Two-three-one.  Do you suppose that the reason we only got one standby is that Tiki
KILLED him right off?  It wasn't personal, she was upset. -- Fishhook
