                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TELORINTHE.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  INVIDIOTS?  Who?  
OLDIES is the top team these days, buddies!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  
Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe INVIDIOTS.  Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop 
by 5!  Practice pays for FOE, who pummelled DRAGGIN' MAIN, to pocket 24 points.  A 
certain someone saw GOSSIPID at The Swinging Aardvark with the shakes, and now she 
fails to show up to defend hers throne.  What a pathetic slob!  What can be a greater 
victory?  GOLDEN SOMBRERO has taken its place as the top, as TELORINTHE's new 
Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in TELORINTHE is taking speech lessons to try to 
bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are TELORINTHE's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of ZEITGEIST, alone and 
unchallenged.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of DEATH'S CHOSEN, 
so did that sorry team shy from ZEITGEIST Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, LYRIAL is the most challenged 
warrior.  BUZZ challenged LILITH!  Who says OLLIS HEROES are just a bunch of wimps!  
BUZZ of OLLIS HEROES kept his wits as he overcame LILITH.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Charity is unknown in TELORINTHE, and rightly so.  ZEITGEIST exacted their revenge 
against AAAARRGH HAMMERZ.  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid TELORINTHE farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Congratulations to Gossipid, a rippin' nice Duelmaster.  Touchdown! -- Coach

Hey, JGW, you're OK.  We'll compete with you anytime.  No problem.  You have our
trust.  So, bring it on, Bud.  We use the winged-tee, by the way. -- Coach

Prins Rikard -- That was a valiant effort but our full court pressing defense was
simply too much for you.  Better luck next time. -- Letter Sweater

Ollis Heroes -- Two challenges to the Oldies this turn?  Going for the easy wins
fighting against the old and feeble?  Such discrimination!  However, it turned into
two big losses for the Heroes?  Hmmmm.  Keep up those challenges; we Oldies like the
wins! -- Coach

Kas Of Ys of Zeitgeist -- Your penance turned out to be a little severe, didn't it?
But for the sin of challenging, someone had to pay with a long, slow, cruel death.
May the gods have mercy on your lost soul. -- Confession

Fi -- Well done.  You put me in the toilet quickly. -- Custodian

Zeitgeists -- We Oldies are sorry, as we had neither the intent or the desire for the
kill.  May he (Kas Of Ys) fight well in that Great arena In The Sky and may your
rollup get straight A's. -- Coach

Eye -- Nice train.  I, on the other hand, was shut out.  Ouch!  (sigh) -- Pep Rally

Genericky -- Good fight and even better learns for you.  Maybe next time for me. --
Fener

72 Over Par -- Guess that challenge didnt work out so well for you.  Was close
though. -- Togg

Helga Hoarfrost -- Well I think I lost that fight as soon as I saw you.  You must be
the ugliest person/thing I have ever seen. -- Treach

Ishtar -- Interesting challenge, glad you did it though. -- Trake

Lotus-Eater -- That was tough but my brother's spirit brought me through it.  May we
never have reason to cross blades again. -- Kallor

Invidiots -- Osserc has finally been revenged and we no longer have any ill feelings
toward you. -- Wretch

Lola -- It must be nice to be able to learn so many skills so quickly. -- The

Make Me Holy Again -- It must be nice to learn so many skills so quickly. -- Fhume

Custodian -- Good battle. -- Fi

Gushan -- Good battle. -- Foe

Pep Rally -- You thumped me good. -- Eye

Lyrial -- Ok, that's enough for me.  Time to see if Gossipid will let me have a title
shot.  Not a style I like to face though! -- Golden Sombrero

Cyclidia -- Why oh why can't I take the direct route to victory. -- Detour

Paraldoxia -- Phew, I felt like I was caught in a run down. -- Steal Home

Togg -- That was worse than a Bogey. -- 72 Over Par

Groundhog Hammer -- Let's have that day happen over and over and over and over again.
-- Bloody Stool

Foe -- I don't particularly recall challenging you, but if it's any consolation, I
never hit my mark. -- Gushan

Steal Home -- Spoilsport!  You're biting my style with learns like that. --
Paraldoxia
P.S.  To Confession:  I beg to differ.  My gods ARE good, you've just got to open
your mind to them.

Detour -- My, my, that got ugly in hurry.  Next time try a yield...it not so
frustration. -- Cyclidia

Treach -- You're awfully tough for Elven Descent. *frown*  Almost wore me out.
Almost. -- Helga

Confession -- Maybe I should have just approached you open-handed and asked
forgiveness. *sigh* -- Ghost of Kas, now late of Ys

Congrats, yet again for Gossipid's maintaining of the throne.  Cyclidia sends her
regards, and has offered to pay for this cycles victory rounds.  Hammer, I'm still
considering just how to respond to BF for Lady Blue.  I think I might have a shot,
but it's a long one.  As for Confession...that's a tough one Coach.  I definately did
not see that particular death coming.  Nevertheless, well fought.

JGW -- Try to cut Azaziel a little slack.  He means no harm, it's just persona.  He
has no wish to see your fighters DA'd.  ON a cross-arena not to anyone, but you
particularly.  Do you know where I can get a copy of the 'Wisdom Poo' and or the
'Enchiridion' (Pagan's, not the occultic version *wry grin*).  Failing that, a
listing of weapon damage and crit %, would be helpful too.  Just thought I'd ask.  In
Animus Sincerus. -- Michael Eldritch, compulsive compiler of matters arcane
P.S.  I have no internet access, and I've alreay asked Baphomet.

Kas of Ys -- Left hand, parry-riposte; 9-10-7-15-17-13-16; approx 78 skills, with 1
shy of master in riposte; normal damage and endurance; highly coordinated with two-
weapon statement.  Rest In Peace.

People, I'm in the harried throes (worse than unharried ones, I assure you!) of
moving house.  While breaking my back shifting boxes of books, I will contemplate
possible stories for this arena and get back to you next time. -- the Scribe
