                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon VALAMANTIS, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  EOD had cause to celebrate, after C-4 got 26 
points by beating OGRISH NOCLARR.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 22 points to C-4.  (Discrete enough, OGRISH NOCLARR?) 
Now I can't insult IED, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new 
Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) 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!  Perhaps the warriors of DEATH MOB should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of DEATH MOB 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as THE BEARS apparently had more important 
things to do than fight.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  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.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for VALAMANTIS?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Jorja, the Middle Way

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
