anything to write, so I could play for you, but instead, I will tell you what these

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TELORINTHE, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in TELORINTHE, with 
changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--SUDDENLY, 
THE VAN.  Practice pays for SOUTHBOUND, who pummelled PERSISTANT BEGGAR, to pocket 16 
points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, SANGER was winsome, after beating 
CRACKER JACKS and seeing him lose 10 points.  ACCORDION successfully staved off a 
grab for the roses by MORIS NAHR of MIDDLE WAY 21.  Does TELORINTHE have no one 
talented enough to dethrone it?  Word has it one team in TELORINTHE is using psychics 
to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are TELORINTHE's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in TELORINTHE avoid SUDDENLY, 
THE VAN.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of OLDIES, so did that 
sorry team shy from SUDDENLY, THE VAN If challenges were horses, SANGER could open up 
a fast food joint!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in TELORINTHE is the highlight of my life.  As the 
seasons change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to 
leave this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid 
TELORINTHE farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Suddenly The Van?  Eric?  Didn't the boss meet you at The Face.  Well, greetings from
me. -- Coach, Consortium affiliated

     Seems unlikely, but who knows what he might get up to, since his manager doesn't
     pay attention.

Berthold -- My box held together while my carmel popcorn did its thing.  Gotcha on
the peanuts, eh? -- Cracker Jacks

Morris Nohr -- Thanks.  I couldn't do all this without you. -- Accordion

Eric -- I finessed you all te way to that win. -- Contract Bridge

Petro Salm -- It was a pleasure to meet you.  I was a lucky, lucky, guy. -- 4-H

Melanie Obern -- You continue to make my life miserable.  Why can't you clean up
after yourself? -- Custodian

     And put you out of a job?

Sanger -- I don't think I can beat you, but my job is to keep you away from Accordion
so he can shine and perform at his best. -- Cracker Jacks

May all your lives be filled with successes. -- Coach, Oldies

All -- By way of introduction, I'm running Black Lightning.  I've recently re-caught
my D2 bug which is leading me to this fine place.  Sure we'll all cross blades pretty
soon.  You are all invited to our stables to break bread and welcome us aboard, let's
try to do that before one of you kills one of my flock (while things are still nice
and cordial!)  Blades up -- Dark Angel

     Greetings.

Wow, we had a tourney participant!  Guess that's one who won't be in Storm Rock. --
the Middle Way

Accordion -- We've got to stop meeting like this.  People are talking (though not
here). -- Moris Nahr
P.S.  You coulda shared those skills more evenly.

Sven -- Bored, are you?  In no rush to get back to your guildhouse?  Can't blame you
for that. -- Sam Tall

Life Scout -- Ah, and did you FIND any life when you went scouting?  Around here, you
have to look hard, I think. -- Petro Salm

Custodian -- No, really, swap the broom for some true weapon.  Exchange the dustpan
for a shield.  Something. -- Melanie Obern
P.S.  Or come do a job on our guildhouse.  I swear, Jorja doesn't seem to believe in
cleaning!  Or maybe it's my teammates.

Well, a Convicted Thief.  He claims he isn't really a thief, and that he wasn't even
convicted, but... why would he go out in the world under that title if it weren't
true? -- Rosana Sabel

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission.
