                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ERINIKA.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Those betting on 
KIWI CONNECTION lost their shirt, as KIWI CONNECTION lost their fighting abilities:  
1-1-0.  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to SUPER STARS.  Practice pays for SUN STROKE, who pummelled 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, to pocket 21 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, M. 
CHARDINEE was winsome, after beating THOMAS and seeing him lose 8 points.  Well, 
Duelmaster APPLE DANISH challenged KIWI CONNECTION's KARATIA.  Is a 15-2-0 good 
enough?  APPLE DANISH successfully staved off a grab for the roses by KARATIA of KIWI 
CONNECTION.  Does ERINIKA have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  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 a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in ERINIKA avoid KIWI CONNECTION.  The warriors of KIWI 
CONNECTION found their efforts at combat frustrated as WORLDWIDE GORE apparently had 
more important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
LAELKORISSA is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't FAVORITE GUYS proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in ERINIKA would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  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 ERINIKA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Wow, it says "The warriors advance on each other"!  That sounds so decisive, and I
was actually feeling rather wishy-washy about the whole thing.  Not only that, I
can't seem to spell correctly.  Good thing this scribing tool comes with a spell-
checker.  So, is this an example of the discrimination against total parries?  There
MUST be warriors here that are closer to my ranking and also active.  Mustn't there?
Whatever, I survived, and Wanstead got the win and the "scum sympathy" vote, so it
isn't so bad. -- Laelorissa
P.S.  Lonely, though.  I need to graduate, die, or get teammates.  Which will it be?

American Eagle -- Hey, I just wanted ONE feather.  Is that such a crime? -- a harshly
Convicted Thief

Carpenter -- You didn't have to saw me off at the knees and nail me to the wall. -- a
different Convicted Thief (so there are lots of us here on Dwes Eg, so sue us)

Marlin -- Gods, at this rate I might as well go back to Mordant! -- a Mordanti
Refugee

Butterflies -- (injured look)  I just wanted to BORROW your butter dish. -- yet a
third Convicted Thief

Sun Light -- This falls hard on a Member of the Cult of Outer Darkness.

Kenny Chesney -- At this rate, it's going to take me a long time to earn enough to go
back to Osksi, isn't it? -- (name withheld out of embarrassment), Osksi Noble

Cardinal -- Fiend. -- a Merchant and Moneylender
P.S.  See if I ever give you credit again!

Stinger -- (whine)  (whimper)  (cringe) -- an anonymous Fratsfa Slave

Red Wing -- Hmm.  Care to form an alliance against the law-abiding? -- a very
Dangerous Criminal

Stub Bull -- Too bad you got me when I was cranked.  Bwahahaha! -- a Merchant and
Moneylender
