                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DAYLA KIV.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing works for 
a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as SAND DANCERS can 
attest...  Practice pays for KOGAN DJIAN, who pummelled SNOWBALL II, to pocket 16 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 13 points to KOGAN DJIAN.  (Discrete enough, SNOWBALL II?) KORBIN TEN BARAN 
found out that DAYLA KIV isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in DAYLA KIV 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 the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of MEDAL OF HONOR, alone and unchallenged.  
As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of I HATE TOURNEYS, so did that 
sorry team shy from MEDAL OF HONOR Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, VEAL SORENTO is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Like a 
mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid DAYLA KIV farewell-- Novgorodny 
Vir

We were going to apologize for missing the due-date on these personals, but seeing
six deaths in the arena and knowing that the city must have perished, it seems less
imperative.  But we'll send in something late just the same. -- Jorja

Anonymous Tournament Participant -- All now becomes clear.  Your wife has my
sympathies. -- Jorja

It's a hard life when one-four is an improvement! -- Greelo Duffus, who was not
"lucky" in that win, thank you very much

And currnetly, two-three.  The wins are a surprise, frankly.  The way things have
been going this week, an oh-fer would not have surprised me. -- Korbin ten Baran
P.S.  And only one of the wins was over a standby.  Good!
