                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  SHEWISH BUFFET had cause to celebrate, after 
RALTUMAN OMELETTE got 29 points by beating CJ.  THE COUNT certainly had a baffled 
expression on hers face, after losing to BLACK TOM and losing 20 points in the 
process!  TESLA SHARPE found out that LIN TIRIAN isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be 
the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are LIN TIRIAN's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Congratulations, RALTUMAN OMELETTE.  The manager of J should have sent CJ to the Dark 
Arena for having a 16-14-2 long ago.  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will 
pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in LIN TIRIAN is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

It says here that Sjs is going to graduate.  Good.  We congratulate you.  Don't let
the door hit you in the rear on your way out. -- the Sand Dancers
P.S.  Maybe your replacement will TALK sometimes.
P.P.S.  But probably not.

Sjs -- If that win is what it took, I'm glad to give it to you.  Now *I* want the
wins. -- Harnie Black

I don't care if that Dwarf is really from the Halls of Khra rather than Khalhums, I
don't LIKE dwarves. -- Tesla Sharpe

The Count -- Huh.  I bet you can't count hunters while flying over them and dodging
bullets. -- Kurtal Duck

Cj -- Okay, that wasn't bad.  But feta cheese works better than cheddar in a spinach-
cheese croisant. -- Black Tom

Raltuman Omelette -- I hear you did something incredibly violent during the tourney.
Only hearsay, but I believe it. -- Delna Berin

18 March 11
All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
