                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon LIN TIRIAN, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  ROSS F. GRAY found out that LIN TIRIAN 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. 
     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 SAND DANCERS, alone and unchallenged.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of MAGIC ARTISTS, so did that sorry team 
shy from SAND DANCERS If challenges were horses, ANN NASTY could open up a fast food 
joint!  As a confidence booster, GALLOWS challenged THE WEEPER, down 17 points.  Do 
you also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, GALLOWS?  GALLOWS beat THE WEEPER 
with a point difference of 17.  So this is what LIN TIRIAN calls a duel.  This will 
make an interesting tale.  ANN NASTY found herself challenged by a warrior 22 below:  
HOLLOWPOINT.  HOLLOWPOINT of DEATH PENALTY kept his wits as he overcame ANN NASTY.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Admittedly Death 
waits for no one, but me thinks SERGEANT 2 of MEDAL OF HONOR Z2 (5-2-0) is being sent 
off a little prematurely.  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for LIN TIRIAN?  On 
that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

So, today we have two-three, with one of the wins being over a standby.  That was the
new guy.  We don't really know how he's going to work out, but he's disturbing to
have around the guildhouse.  He sneaks around, talks to the empty air, and is, ah,
not at all nice to cats.  I'm glad I'm leaving. -- Silver Slim
