                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  ARENA FELINES had cause to celebrate, after 
KIT-KAT got 22 points by beating KETA.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 18 points to KIT-KAT.  (Discrete enough, 
KETA?) COOL CAT successfully staved off a grab for the roses by DRACO EL TANIN of 
BLADE AND BLOOD.  Does JURINE have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has 
it one team in JURINE is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to 
death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Everyone is famous for fifteen 
minutes, and KETA is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't FAVORITE GUYS 
proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  I hear BENIRI 
B'RAN of FAVORITE GUYS tired of the battles and was thinking of becoming a priest.  
PUTTY TAT of ARENA FELINES saved her the effort of getting references.  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
JURINE, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Welcome 
Wench.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Cool Cat -- You could get a sweater, that might help. -- Delores

The Convicted Assassin is a redhead.  I guess that's how he got caught and convicted,
hmm?  Too noticeable. -- Keta

The Userous Merchant attempted to discriminate against me, but I explained to him why
that would be Bad. -- Ms S.B. Anthony

Embezzling Scribe?  Bah. -- Beniri B'Ran

And a Persistent Beggar to round things off.  Four-Oh against standbys, and a loss to
the Duel2Dude.  Bah. -- Matteo

Ed. -- I put my foot on the bag-boy's fingers.  It seemed more likely to be
effective. -- Ghost of Freddie

     That seems rather mean, somehow.  Unless he's the one who made you into a ghost.
     -- Ed.

12 January 2005
On Jhans turn number 476 (due on Feb. 16, 2005) the Second Annual kLk St. Valentine's
Massacre Kill Contest will begin.  The rules are simple; the team with the most kills
on the last turn wins.  Last year's winner was Shocking Toad.  Can he repeat?  Could
DOOMcorps crush all challengers?  Will the kLk prevail?  Or will you be the
independent manager to show that alliances aren't all that?  Come on to Jhans and
let's find out!
     Prizes are:  1st.  Renaming of a Dark Arena monster and five roll-up
                        certificates or $25.00 deposited in your account.
                  2nd.  Renaming of a Stand-In monster.
     Come on and celebrate the Delarquan way!
