                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at J are walking tall, as they are 
ranked 4th on their first try!  Going for the Duelmaster soon?  J had cause to 
celebrate, after MATT got 20 points by beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  CLYMENE certainly 
had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to SARIN SHARP and losing 11 
points in the process!  Can you believe it?  SANDY STRATTON apparently has better 
things to do as LIN TIRIAN's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  Now I can't insult 
MEDUSA, as she has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop 
me if I lay it on too thick) So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Q:  What's a record 
like 5-9-0 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  This week's winner:  RHEA of 
VICTORIOUS III!  Like a tattered, worn-out, faded, out-of-fashion garment cast out to 
rot, IAPETUS of VICTORIOUS III has been summarily sent to the Dark Arena.  Ask not 
for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  LIN 
TIRIAN, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Lost Hope 
Inn.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

your size. -- Tover Duck

A Captured Orc?  I could some interesting things with a Captured Orc.  Do I have to
give him back? -- Shillis Vair

Shills Vair -- Yes. -- Geroge Lok, nominally captured orc and better at fighting than
you are

Clymene -- For some reason I keep confusing with a flower, but there's nothing
flower-like about you. -- Sarin Sharp

I look at the Ambitious Guard, grinning down my blade, you know, and I laugh.  Ha,
ha. -- Black Tom

Well, damn.  Tom stole my line.  I'll get him for that. -- Harny Black

Our congratulations to Tyler Durden the total stranger. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
