                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  THE ELITE posted a nice gain, to come in 3rd.  
Everybody loves a winner...  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 14 points to KUNG-FU MASTER.  (Discrete enough, WALL OF 
FUR?) Can you believe it?  STAR apparently has better things to do as ARADI's 
Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a greater victory?  CLARENCE G. CRAFT 
has taken his place as the top, as ARADI's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in 
ARADI is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it 
works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of MEDAL OF HONOR B11 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with 
its tail between its legs, DREAMTIME scurried away from MEDAL OF HONOR B11.  Oh, the 
shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  
Whatever it is, DAISY DAWG is the most challenged warrior.  Mismatched by 11 points, 
CLARENCE G. CRAFT won victory over SISTER MOON.  Is this really worth noting?  I 
thought SISTER MOON showed great skill and promise when she was defeated by CLARENCE 
G. CRAFT.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  How true is MEDAL OF HONOR B11's mettle?  Just one week remains for the 
avenging of SERGEANT 5's death.  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for 
thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  ARADI, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Victory Tavern.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

Grimpen Mire -- Greetings unto ye, Grimpen Mire.  Me name is Zolo.  I hope ye like me
stubbornness, but me father and me father's father taught me that if you cint beat
yer opponent in three tries, then ye's be a bearded gnome.  So this here's me last
chance.  I hate bearded gnomes... freaky little buggers. *snort* -- Zolo

Golanda & Unnameables -- Alright, so y'all want to start the bloodfeuds, hmmm.  Right
on! -- Scorpio

Molly -- Heads up! -- Kitana Suki

Hey Spot of the Red Dog Gang, it's nice to meet you.  I'm the new kid on the block to
the game, so I'm open to diplos or chats.  Don't be a stranger. -- Scorpio

     Dogs are never strangers, unless they're Dobermans.

Spartan and Alexis -- Tonight we of the Elite drink to you!  Hear hear! -- Scorpio

One-four?  How discouraging, and on the same day I won Best in Show!  These other
Dogs are pathetic.  Somebody should come around and whack them all with rolled-up
newspapers. -- Daisy Dawg
