     "An ELF?  Irla got KILLED and her place was taken by a damned ELF?"  Xara
shrieked rage and bared her fangs.
     Irlon, who had just come in to see what all the noise was about, backed toward
the door quickly.  An Orc in a rage was not something he cared to tangle with.
     Although normally alert, Xara was currently concentrated on Wallis, the present
acting team captain.  "I come back here to get ready for GUESTS, and I find the
guildhouse infested with Dwarves [Wallis was a Dwarf) and Elves!  It's
insupportable!"  Irlon was very glad he wasn't Wallis.
     "Uh...we're not really set up for guests here," Wallis muttered, doing some
backing away of his own.  "I'm not sure that's a good idea."
     "Not a good IDEA?"  Xara advanced on him with a nasty smile.  "Well, I've got a
GREAT idea.  I'm going to SHAVE you, you hairy little runt, and use the hair to stuff
a mattress for the guests!"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  GLORY DAYS had cause to celebrate, after 
SHOELESS JOE got 13 points by beating ONE-EYE TEO.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, SHOELESS JOE was winsome, after beating ONE-EYE TEO and seeing him lose 9 
points.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by COCAINE, of HABIT, 
who despite a 20-34-0 couldn't overcome LIN TIRIAN's Number 1.  So who's the team 
that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt 
to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of TREE PEOPLE, alone and unchallenged.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of WILD KINGDOM, so did that sorry team 
shy from TREE PEOPLE If challenges were horses, ONE-EYE TEO could open up a fast food 
joint!  Willing to win at any cost is VALIANT TITMOUSE, who challenged CLUMSY DAN, 8 
points junior.  Our sympathies, CLUMSY DAN!  I thought VALIANT TITMOUSE showed great 
skill and promise when he beat CLUMSY DAN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in LIN TIRIAN is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for LIN TIRIAN?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
