                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of JURINE.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at FORCE OF 
FIVE left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by FAVORITE 
GUYS.  Good show!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive 
observation?) as BLACK PEARL can attest...  Practice pays for RANDY, who pummelled 
AMBITIOUS GUARD, to pocket 15 points.  CHILLILI CHES certainly had a baffled 
expression on hers face, after losing to AEKIR and losing 3 points in the process!  
What can be a greater victory?  KETA has taken hers place as the top, as JURINE's new 
Duelmaster.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in JURINE would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Stone Dog -- I salute a fight well done, and also a cool warrior and team name. --
Delores

Vladimir Taltos -- I hate it when someone with a sinister name (and left-handed, to
boot, or should that be to glove?) makes the bathtub remark.  It gives me a cold
grue. -- Keta

Osksi Noble?  I bet!  Still, I don't mind a win. -- Randy

And neither do I! -- Chillili Ches

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
