                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ARADI, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  UNNAMEABLES had cause to celebrate, after ANON got 22 
points by beating BALKO DUNN.  CHOPPED RABBIT certainly had a baffled expression on 
his face, after losing to ELIN GISSORS and losing 7 points in the process!  A certain 
someone saw EVENING STAR at The Victory Tavern with the shakes, and now he fails to 
show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  What can be a greater victory?  
ELIN GISSORS has taken hers 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!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Like a 
mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ARADI farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Evening Star -- You just don't get better as time goes on.  You get WORSE.  You call
those SHOES?  I could SNEEZE better shoes. -- Slippers

The Noble Assassin is a Dog-kicker.  Be warned! -- Kotter

Hoffa -- This is a joke, right? -- Fenwrist

sense.  But then, human names usually don't make sense, so I don't mind.  I kinda
liked playing tug-of-war with you. -- Diggity Dog

Manager -- I think that may be the first time I've seen that comment about weapon-
suitedness.  Impressive. -- Jorja

Twiddle -- I don't like you. -- Big Dog
