                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, 
maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to GARBAGE PAIL KIDS.  MIDDLE 
WAY 10 had cause to celebrate, after KIM NEUW got 13 points by beating CM - STAR.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 6 
points to LAZY LOUIE.  (Discrete enough, CM - HERA?) What can be a greater victory?  
HARBERT KREIGH has taken his place as the top, as VALAMANTIS' new Duelmaster.  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are VALAMANTIS' warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some 
nasty rumors, the guys in ZOMBIE SQUAD are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No 
need to avoid 'em.  The warriors of ZOMBIE SQUAD found their efforts at combat 
frustrated as CM - SCORPIO apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If 
challenges were horses, ODER QUIN could open up a fast food joint!  Them's the 
breaks, ODER QUIN.  Expecting fair challenges from CM - SCORPIO is evidently too much 
to ask.  Next time CM - NEPTUNE walks with his head high remind him of the fight 
where he challenged down 18 points and lost to ODER QUIN.  Take heed VALAMANTIS, of 
the unprincipled action of CM - ACHILLES.  By challenging MILKY WAYNE, 17 points 
below him, CM - ACHILLES besmirches the noble art of dueling.  Bookies and CM - 
ACHILLES were more than a little surprised, as MILKY WAYNE snatched an easy victory 
from CM - ACHILLES, gaining 20 points.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

By golly, is all of Valamantis full of baloney?  A team directly from the FTF
Crapmaster contest can enter great and glorious Valamantis and do so well?  My my.
If that is the case, then it is a high, high honor to be... Crapmaster

Nervous Nellie -- Perhaps you would better fit in a garbage pail? -- CM - Hermes

Oder Quinn -- I did it once, I just had to repeat the fun.  It WAS fun, wasn't it?
How's your heel? -- CM - Achilles

Lon Olbert -- You may have made my day.  Whoever would have thought I could win two?
Two, baby! -- CM - Hera

Hoegarden -- I'll bet I fooled you!  I still hate hoeing gardens.  Hate it!  A star
should not be subjected to such crap. -- CM - Star

Cult Member -- I hope that convinces you that I will never join? -- CM - Neptune

Valamantis is Darkholmian; Darkholmians are brutal and unforgiving; I must become
Darkholmian to win; I AM. -- Crapmaster
P.S.  Surely you didn't expect Health; Humility; Honor?

Shlitz -- I wish people wouldn't keep handing me beers.  I never know what to do with
them. -- Harbert Kreigh

Mariah -- Wow, it must be awful being a zombie and having permanent Bad Hair. -- Kim
Neuw

CM - Achilles -- Yes, well, you're such a short guy, I couldn't even REACH your heel.
-- Oder Quin

CM - Hera -- But what a lucious way to lose! -- Lon Olbert

Lazy Louie -- Oh, well, just keeping down with the rest of the team. -- Lendis Ohlm
