                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of AMEN-TEI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  WAY OF THE BLADE 2 
had cause to celebrate, after SEVERIN got 32 points by beating HANGMAN.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 5 points to 
JOE CHILL.  (Discrete enough, JOKER'S WILD?) Now I can't insult MALICHAI, 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.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  If challenges were horses, HANGMAN 
could open up a fast food joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
SEVERIN of WAY OF THE BLADE 2 spared HANGMAN (10-11-1) from having to lose any more 
fights.  What's your next plan, WHY KNOT?  HANGMAN of WHY KNOT put away SEVERIN of 
WAY OF THE BLADE 2.  Let's hope Lady Luck continues to smile upon SEVERIN!  Oh hard!  
that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid AMEN-TEI farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Razortoothrotey -- I keep hoping that something will blunt those teeth.  But at least
you're graduating.  Now you can be a nuisance on the Isle instead of here.  Go
enforce their tomatoes! -- Wandering Jo

Hangman -- Someone should hang you high. -- Hobo Jo

I slapped the volunteer's hand, and he left?  That is not a very convinced volunteer.

15 September 2003
An Announcement Concerning the Brotherhood of the Blade Alliance:
     I have chosen to withdraw my membership from the Brotherhood of the Blade
alliance.  The years I have spent in the alliance have been the best of my DM career.
I leave the alliance with many great friends and will always remain close to my
former brethren.
     The Brotherhood of the Blade will not skip a beat without my membership.  It
remains in very capable hands and its roster is among the strongest in the game.
With the return on some of its founding members to DM, I know the BOB will continue
to grow in strength and prestige in the years to come. -- The Sandman
