                                      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.  TOLBIN'S GEMS 
after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing 
the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that 
for a perceptive observation?) as LAUGH TRACK LORDS can attest...  Practice pays for 
PRETTY PREACHER, who pummelled SAGAT OF PAIDAN, to pocket 16 points.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 8 points to 
TURK-Y MONSTER.  (Discrete enough, KO THE AVERAGE?) What can be a greater victory?  
JACK TRIPPER has taken his place as the top, as DAL SHANG's new Duelmaster.  Word has 
it one team in DAL SHANG is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed 
life!   
     And how sociable are DAL SHANG's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the 
warriors of POSSE should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  
As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of LAUGH TRACK LORDS, so did that 
sorry team shy from POSSE Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and KO THE AVERAGE 
is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't SAND DANCERS proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in DAL SHANG is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid 
DAL SHANG farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Ah, and I see we forgot or overlooked congratulating Hematite on graduation.  Good 
work, Hematite. -- An Yee

Jack Tripper -- And this without the maul. -- An Yee

So, the not-from-Khalhums Dwarf gets sliced and diced by ME, Norben the not-so-Lesser.

Yup, and I beat up a standby, too.  Whoopee. -- Ko the Average

Damn, I shouldn't have said that about standbys last time.  The darned Dwarf smashed 
me into the sand.  I'll be picking sand out of my teeth for DAYS. -- Chaego ten Selah

And, despite the THREATS issued in our guildhouse last time, no adventure so far.  
Jorja said something about "grocery shopping, the pharmacy, and then a nap."  Is that 
any way for a manager to talk?  But I can live with that.  Although... the longer 
Jorja has to think and plan about it, the worse things are likely to be.  And last I 
heard, it was bad enough.  Going up the coast to visit an old fossil of an earlier 
graduate of this team-- Think about it.  We're coming up fast on the WINTER solstice, 
and the weather is already not great (for those of you who don't live in Lirith Kai, 
Jorja says "think Chicago," whatever that means).  So she wants us to go up the coast, 
NORTH up the coast, and stay at this FISHING CAMP.  They SAY there's an actual 
building, a sort of inn, even, so it won't mean sleeping in TENTS, but still, this is 
not MY idea of solstice holiday.  And the place is supposed to be haunted, too.  Bah. 
-- An Yee
P.S.  If any of you are feeling masochistic, you're welcome to come along.
