                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ARADI, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  RESCUE RANGERS?  Who?  RED DOG GANG is the top team 
these days, buddies!  UNNAMEABLES had cause to celebrate, after TOCK .. TICK got 30 
points by beating PREEIRA.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, CHOPPED RABBIT 
was winsome, after beating FENWRIST and seeing him lose 11 points.  Well, Duelmaster 
AN AVERAGE JOE Bloodfeuded BUGS, SLUGS & THUGS' HORNET.  Is a 6-5-1 good enough?  
What can be a greater victory?  HORNET has taken his place as the top, as ARADI's new 
Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     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 RED DOG GANG 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of 
RED DOG GANG found their efforts at combat frustrated as RESCUE RANGERS apparently 
had more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  
Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, HORNET is the most 
challenged warrior.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARADI is the highlight of my life.  My fingers tire 
and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ARADI?  On 
that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Well, I suppose we should salute the tourney participants, though I don't suppose
they'd appreciate a proper Dog salute.  So... just a good bark, and let it go at
that. -- Spot and the Red Dog Gang

An Average Joe -- Dog Kicker! -- Chiquita Chiwawa

Donald -- You don't understand the TRUE rescuing.  You know, jumping into the pond
when your person falls in, or biting someone who hits them.  Bah. -- Jill Rustle

Potato Bug -- You taste bad. -- Kotter

The Trustworthy Scribe gave me--well, he didn't insist on having it back after I took
it--a penwiper to chew on.  I liked it, but it made my tongue black. -- Slippers

The Friendly Constable had a leash!  I don't have to wear a leash for HIM. --
Fenwrist

We went three and oh against standbys, and we think we should get to write personals!
