                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JURINE, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  MIDDLE WAY 16 had cause to celebrate, after FIFINE 
GILLY got 15 points by beating THE USEROUS MERCHANT.  A certain someone should cut 
down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 5 points to SYBO.  (Discrete 
enough, STORMCROWE PIE?) In JURINE, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find 
ourselves a new Duelmaster, ZENSU LASAGNA.  So who's the team that's been walking 
into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, R2-D2 is the most challenged warrior. 
Them's the breaks, R2-D2.  Expecting fair challenges from CANINE CUISINE is evidently 
too much to ask.  RACK OF LAB beat R2-D2 with a point difference of 19.  So this is 
what JURINE calls a duel.  This will make an interesting tale.   
     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.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Ventress -- Well, of course.  Men... eh.  Essential for certain things, useless
otherwise. -- Vinda Yarro

Rack of Lab -- I didn't feel like writing a column over that fight, although I was
glad to give you your first loss.  Every gladiator should have a loss in Basic; it
prepares them for Primus and losing endlessly to the fossils. -- Vinda Yarro

R2d2 -- How tedious of you. -- Chuck Endern

Someone's been feeding Dark Root to the Ambitious Guard.  Don't do that!  You're

                 NEW TEAMS IN THE TEMPORARY TOURNAMENT ARENA (DM 85)

Please note that all new teams created at the Face-to-Face were temporarily placed in 
a temporary Tournament Arena, DM 85.  If you requested that your team be placed in a 
specific arena, it has already transferred to that arena.  Effective immediately, any 
teams placed in DM 85 and not transferred out to another arena, will be automatically 
deleted a month after the tournament.  If you have questions about any of your teams, 
please contact Customer Service. -- RSI
