                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of VALAMANTIS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  AQUILA had cause 
to celebrate, after XI AQUILAE got 26 points by beating STRIKE 2.  Win some, lose 
some.  Speaking of which, XI AQUILAE was winsome, after beating STRIKE 2 and seeing 
him lose 21 points.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by ODER 
QUIN, of MIDDLE WAY 10, who despite a 16-32-1 couldn't overcome VALAMANTIS' Number 1. 
Word has it one team in VALAMANTIS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a 
charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of STRIKER FORCE, alone and unchallenged.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of CM - SCORPIO, so did that sorry team 
shy from STRIKER FORCE If challenges were horses, ST. RIKER could open up a fast food 
joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do 
not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Two-three.  My teammates hate me to stick me with having to mention this.  Wins over
standbys, of course, and losses to managed gladiators.  Me and Lendis struck with
force, Neosha with stars in her eyes, and the two least experienced get the wimpiest
standbys.  It's enough to make me spit. -- Oder Quin
