                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for SOULTAKER, who pummelled 
JADE BELLE, to pocket 24 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 20 points to SOULTAKER.  (Discrete enough, JADE 
BELLE?) Duelmaster GARTH from MANAGER MUSINGS is going for the gold, as he challenged 
SAND DANCERS' SERNILLAN.  Ooh, the excitement!  SERNILLAN found out that JADE 
MOUNTAIN isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  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!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in SAND 
DANCERS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The warriors 
of SAND DANCERS found their efforts at combat frustrated as MANAGER MUSINGS 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for 
fifteen minutes, and SERNILLAN is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't SAND 
DANCERS proud!  Call 'im brash!  Call 'im brassy!  Call 'im brave!  Call 'im sassy!  
FALCONIER will face KORTO LU, up by 29.  Aaaah, just call 'im dead meat.  The gods 
smiled upon FALCONIER, in his upset fight against KORTO LU.  FALCONIER gets a win, 17 
points, and a free drink on me.  (Next week, OK?)  
     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.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Hey, Jorja.  It IS getting boring, is it not?  We tried to spice it up by having Dr.
Doom post his Dark Wards ads in 75 rather than DM 9.  Didn't help much, did it?  If
things don't perk up, at the graduation of Garth and Soultaker, we will be closing
down.  (sigh) -- FTF Manager

Sernillan -- Take that more of the same Maple Leaf Rag. -- Garth

Jaginru -- You dirty, rotten, no good whatever!  That was indecent of you. --
Mannequin

Korto Lu -- What?  Me care? -- Soultaker

Captain Mondinor -- We loved your comment "Death Stud, Cufflink Of Destruction".
Made our day! -- FTF Manager and Consortiumites everywhere

Garth -- No, I can't do it.  I just don't like to dance with someone shorter than me.
It's too awkward.  We'll have to sit out. -- Sernillan

Mannequin -- Do you model fashions on the side? -- Jaginru

Soultaker -- Well, give it BACK. -- Korto Lu
