                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ERINIKA, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at PLAY BALL left the arena dejected, 
after being kicked out of the top spot by SUPER STARS.  Good show!  THE BULLS after a 
sorry 0-2-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 
'Can't fight no more' blues!  EASTERN HORDE VI had cause to celebrate, after 6-1 got 
23 points by beating AMERICAN EAGLE.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 6-1 
was winsome, after beating AMERICAN EAGLE and seeing him lose 15 points.  Duelmaster 
APPLE DANISH from WORLDWIDE GORE is going for the gold, as he challenged KIWI 
CONNECTION's WANSTEAD.  Ooh, the excitement!  APPLE DANISH successfully staved off a 
grab for the roses by WANSTEAD of KIWI CONNECTION.  Does ERINIKA have no one talented 
enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in ERINIKA 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 a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in ERINIKA avoid KIWI CONNECTION.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of WORLDWIDE GORE, so did that sorry team shy from 
KIWI CONNECTION If challenges were horses, GORDON could open up a fast food joint!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ERINIKA is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I 
now bid ERINIKA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Crip -- So how many teams do you have in this arena.  If I didn't know better it's
just you and me and maybe one other. -- the Mun

Red Wing -- Well, rats.  I'm going to have to learn how to fly, aren't it?  At least
so long as I'm the only one here without tourney experience.  Heck. -- Laelkorissa

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
