                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of LIN TIRIAN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Good things come 
to those who fight well, as J can attest, moving up by 0.  J had cause to celebrate, 
after CJ got 18 points by beating HARNIE BLACK.  HARNIE BLACK certainly had a baffled 
expression on hers face, after losing to CJ and losing 16 points in the process!  
Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by UNBELIEVABLE, of THE 
WILLBURYS 78, who despite a 8-5-1 couldn't overcome LIN TIRIAN's Number 1.  Word has 
it one team in LIN TIRIAN is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed 
life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in LIN TIRIAN would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  LIN TIRIAN, I leave you 
now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Lost Hope Inn.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

Matt -- Huh, an orc.  Still, since *I* can't remain duelmaster--and I don't see why I
shouldn't just stay here immortally and go on being the top fighter--I suppose you
might as well.  Why should I care about this place any longer, when I'm being kicked
out?  Nobody here APPRECIATES me. -- Shillis Vair
P.S.  At least you aren't Joey.

Joey -- And you ARE Joey.  Damn. -- Black Tom

Cj -- You don't like hospitals?  Too bad!  Your other option was the morgue, you
know.  This isn't tiddlywinks we're playing at. -- Harnie Black

No Ambitious Guard is going to make slighting comments about Ducks in MY hearing. --
Kurtal Duck

Maybe the Embezzling Scribe should get a job as a greenhouse attendant, since he
can't kill houseplants? -- Delna Bern

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
