                                      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.  GASHOUSE GANG?  
Who?  MIDDLE WAY 18 is the top team these days, buddies!  Practice pays for ADAM, who 
pummelled WONTON NOT NOW, to pocket 13 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, ADAM was winsome, after beating WONTON NOT NOW and seeing him lose 11 points.  
Can you believe it?  EDMONDS apparently has better things to do as ERINIKA's 
Duelmaster than show up and fight!  In ERINIKA, nothing is permanent (except Death), 
and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, ADAM.  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 THE BULLS.  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, PALINDROMES scurried away from THE BULLS.  Oh, the shame!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ERINIKA is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ERINIKA?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Two-three.  Not so good.  I know, I know, Jorja SAYS if we can go forty percent
running without management, she won't complain, but that's a lie.  She complains.
She just doesn't DO anything about it.  Which, okay, includes not sending us to the
Dark Arena, but still. -- Raemond Purr
P.S.  And to think I could have had a career as a trial lawyer, and I turned it down
because I didn't LIKE trial by combat.  And what do I get?  Combat without the trial.
