                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  HAZAARDS OF CLONING?  Who?  AL-GHAZIS is the 
top team these days, buddies!  What's a move up by 5 you ask?  (alright, maybe you 
didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to OUTCASTS.  NIGHTHAWKS had cause to 
celebrate, after KAT got 18 points by beating KING TEC.  CHIAD certainly had a 
baffled expression on hers face, after losing to THRAX and losing 11 points in the 
process!  Can you believe it?  EYE OF THE KNEE DOLL apparently has better things to 
do as KYR'TERR's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  Now I can't insult KAT, as she 
has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it 
on too thick) Word has it one team in KYR'TERR is taking speech lessons to try to 
bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of LITTLE BLUE FREAKS, alone and 
unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, THE CONVICTS scurried away 
from LITTLE BLUE FREAKS.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
ZOMBIE-3 is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't OUTCASTS proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
The audience gave a nice round of rasberries to MAT CAUTHON of AL-GHAZIS, for 
expiring in such an ungraceful fashion.  8-10-2, indeed!  Ask not for whom the sword 
slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
KYR'TERR, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Welcome 
Wench.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
