                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for GYPSY JUNE, who pummelled KHALHUMS DWARF, to pocket 
15 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, 
after losing 4 points to K. GRIFFIN.  (Discrete enough, NILLA WAYFARER?) In AMEN-TEI, 
nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, WALKING 
TROUBLE.  Word has it one team in AMEN-TEI is using psychics to predict wins.  They 
lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
WAYFARERS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The 
warriors of WAYFARERS found their efforts at combat frustrated as BAD GIRLS 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
AMEN-TEI would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid AMEN-TEI farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Poor Thing -- Thanks for the skills!  But nobody is going to feel sorry for you if
you keep winning like that. -- Sloppy Joe

Delilah -- I'm actually glad to have lost that.  It was beginning to feel like a
travesty, and I never look my best in a travesty.  It's hard to get a good fit. --
Gypsy June

Sloppy Joe -- You need to clean up your act.  If it is an act.  I mean, it's tasty
and all, but do you have to drip sauce all over everything? -- Poor Thing
P.S.  I never thought of a sloppy joe as buffet food.  Shows how much I knew, eh?
