                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon KYR'TERR, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in KYR'TERR, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--NEW YORK.  He who 
laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe ENTENTER.  
Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop by 7!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's 
that for a perceptive observation?) as ENROUTE TO ST LOUIS can attest...  Good things 
come to those who fight well, as NEW YORK can attest, moving up by 3.  THE MUSKETEERS 
had cause to celebrate, after ATHOS got 21 points by beating FREDDY GARCIA.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 12 
points to ATHOS.  (Discrete enough, FREDDY GARCIA?) A certain someone saw I OF THE 
KNEE DOLL at The Welcome Wench with the shakes, and now it fails to show up to defend 
its throne.  What a pathetic slob!  In KYR'TERR, nothing is permanent (except Death), 
and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, AYE OF THE NEEDLE.  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.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of MORTAL MAYHEM should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of ENROUTE TO ST LOUIS, so did that sorry team shy 
from MORTAL MAYHEM Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and BENITO CHATTE is it 
right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't THE ZOO proud!   
     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.  More important duties call me.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for KYR'TERR?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Athos -- Excellent battle, sir.  Perhaps we shall battle again sometime. -- H.B.K.

The Musketeers -- Truly, I regret the loss of dear Aramis.  Kindly don't hold it
against me, or him for he was a fine warrior. -- The Game

Aye of the Needle -- Youch!  And then you went AFTER me with your needle.  I've been
punctured! -- Benito Chatte
P.S.  Remind me not to support cloning....

Mississauga -- Don't go, the traffic's awful! -- Faizun Gote

Barrie -- Indeed, if the route in question is infested with golems such as you and
your teammate(s), I will not go. -- Halda Impola

Finger Lakes -- What a wet blanket you are! -- Dorine Eagel

Kingston -- Bleh. -- Kully Lamm
P.S.  Hey, it isn't like anyone is writing BETTER personals here.

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
