                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in JURINE, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--STAR WARS.  MIDDLE WAY 16 had cause to 
celebrate, after VINDA YARRO got 12 points by beating RACK OF LAB.  FIFINE GILLY 
certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to AMBITIOUS GUARD and 
losing 12 points in the process!  DARTH VADAR successfully staved off a grab for the 
roses by GIRL SCOUT COOKIE of SHEWISH BUFFET.  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.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in JURINE avoid SHEWISH BUFFET.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of CANINE CUISINE, so did that sorry team shy from 
SHEWISH BUFFET Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and VINDA YARRO is it right 
now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't MIDDLE WAY 16 proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  JURINE, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Welcome Wench.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

Zensu Lasagna -- Hey, no beating on the helpless robot....(gets tazer out).... --
R2D2

All -- No... not the army of NPC drones... time to get the SAM missiles ready. -- Sir
Jessie Jest, mgr of Star Wars

One Armed Bandit -- Stop Juicing up your warriors or I will start the referee bribes!
-- Sir Jessie Jest

Congrats to Darth Vader on the throne and the invite. -- One Armed Bandit

Darth Vader -- Now get out here, you creep. -- Girl Scout Cookie

Girl Scout Cookie -- Yeah, but gross arena names is a gladiatorial tradition, isn't
it? -- Vinda Yarro

Our congratulations to Darth Vader.  Maybe you can get that breathing problem fixed
on the Isle? -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Girl Scout Cookie -- You may be "one tough cookie," but I'm no fragile Murskan
Meringue myself. -- Vinda Yarro

Rack of Lab -- Not my dish. -- Arkan Barnes

Ventress -- And an amazing vent you are, ma'am. -- Chuck Endern

Chicken Poodle Soup -- Needs herbs.  Surely a Fratsfan like you would know about
herbs! -- Jenni Korreg

I'd be tempted to say, "Yet another Captured Orc, where are they all coming from?"
except that I can tell--I recognize the scar patterns--that this is the same old orc
back again.  And again.  And yet again. -- Fifine Gilly
