                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  MEDAL OF HONOR C11 had cause to celebrate, 
after SERGEANT 8 got 22 points by beating GORBAN TEN SKORA.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, SERGEANT 8 was winsome, after beating GORBAN TEN SKORA and seeing 
him lose 15 points.  What can be a greater victory?  CAUSEY has taken his place as 
the top, as DAL SHANG's new Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of TOLBIN'S GEMS, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of TOLBIN'S GEMS found their efforts at combat frustrated as BASH BROS 
EVANGELIST apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     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.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Driving a Rolls -- I would if I could, but I just got my fingers and other parts
singed by that hot lady, Fire Opal.  I'm not up to much of anything at the moment. --
Gorban ten Skora
P.S.  Good job flattening that Sergeant!  I was especially impressed with how you
turned around and ran over him a second time.

Warren Jeffs -- Your teammate would have me kill you.  Give me a reason not to, eh?
-- An Yee

Sergeant 8 -- Very kind of you to take one for me.  I greatly appreciate it.  If you
ever want a ride in style, just ask and I'll take you for a ride. -- Driving a Rolls

So...  Just one win and survival is all it is going to take!  Hope has begun to grow!
However, I'd rather be facing Anarchist's endurance challenged lungers or Jorja's
speed challenged basher. -- Assur
