                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DAL SHANG.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  TIL DEATH DO US 
PART had cause to celebrate, after KARMA got 16 points by beating MIM YELLOWHAIR.  
BOBIKA VHETT certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to CHAEGO 
SARILDAN and losing 13 points in the process!  SORRELISHE found out that DAL SHANG 
isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the 
warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got 
a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  If challenges were horses, LUISENYA could open up 
a fast food joint!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in DAL SHANG is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid DAL SHANG 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

nobody said a woman had to be a pushover any of the time, you know. -- Luisenya

my armor.  Ah... you want to come help? -- Loeker Smith
