                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for ARM, who pummelled DONSTAN, to pocket 9 points.  
JAEGO KLEE certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to TABLE 
DANCER and losing 7 points in the process!  A certain someone saw RIOT ACT at The 
Crystal Wheel with the shakes, and now he fails to show up to defend his throne.  
What a pathetic slob!  In CHAVEZ RAVINE, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we 
find ourselves a new Duelmaster, TSIRELL.  So who's the team that's been walking into 
taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in CHAVEZ RAVINE is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid 
CHAVEZ RAVINE farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Riot Act -- (fuming)  You always do that!  Don't you get TIRED of winning sometimes?
-- Pelak ten Zorn
P.S.  At least you won't be MY problem from now on.

Well...I guess the Traveling Tinker can beat the dents out of his OWN armor this
time. -- Tsirell

Well, darn.  I didn't MEAN to kill Chandar Lo.  He wasn't wearing enough armor.  He
didn't get out of the way when attacked.  He's so short I couldn't help hitting him
on the head.  It's HIS fault! -- Donstan

Pansy Parkinson -- You look like a pansy, but (wincing) you don't fight like one. --
Ronsevan

Lalvo of the Pen -- Ha!  You're an Embezzling Scribe!  Don't try to deny it, I can
TELL. -- Jaego Klee
P.S.  Besides, you're Ratani.  Everyone knows about THEM.

Riot Act -- There's just no getting away from us. -- the Sand Dancers
P.S.  But then again, looking at the end of the newsletter, we see that you ARE
getting away.  Unless you go to Lirin Kiv.  Anyway, congratulations.

Tsirell -- Have YOU ever tried begging in this town?  Believe me when I say that
standby fighting is easier. -- Komar the Penniless

20 September 2004
Azereth has returned!  I am the manager for Scarlet Blades in DM 25.  I was a member
of the Crimson Alliance and the Crimson Brotherhood (which was composed of former CA
members).  I've been out of the game for many (at least 5) years.  I would like to
hear from anyone who remembers me, as well as any Alliance that is seeking to add
experienced managers to their roster.  Contact me at:
     Anthony Wells
     600 W. Shore Dr.
     Stanton, MI  48888
or by personal ads in DM 25.

     The tournament information sheet/strategy sheet should be out sometime in late 
November/early December. 
     If you haven't been to a Face-to-Face before, you're overdue.  If you have, 
you'll be back.  Don't miss this one, it'll be a blast!  See you there!
