                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in TELORINTHE, with 
changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--BLACK 
LIGHTNING II.  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause 
for celebration, according to SUDDENLY, THE VAN.  Good things come to those who fight 
well, as BLACK LIGHTNING II can attest, moving up by 2.  PUNY ORC PELOTON had cause 
to celebrate, after BAD BAD BASSO got 19 points by beating BEN10.  Win some, lose 
some.  Speaking of which, BAD BAD BASSO was winsome, after beating BEN10 and seeing 
him lose 13 points.  The arena was more crowded than usual this time, as YODA faced 
TELORINTHE's Duelmaster.  YODA found out that TELORINTHE isn't a democracy.  You've 
gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in TELORINTHE is using 
psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in OLLIS HEROES are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like 
a pup with its tail between its legs, OLDIES scurried away from OLLIS HEROES.  Oh, 
the shame!  If challenges were horses, ROID FLOYD could open up a fast food joint!  
SAM TALL found himself challenged by a warrior 23 below:  ROID FLOYD.  ROID FLOYD of 
PUNY ORC PELOTON kept his wits as he beat SAM TALL.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Can anything compare to the 
pleasure of writing Spyreports for TELORINTHE?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Vodi went.  Bertold's going.  Congrats to all involved.  We want some graduates, too!
-- Coach. Oldies

Lilliputain Levi -- You tied me up and made me go and go and go and I didn't have the
cards to last.  (sigh)  Well done. -- Contact Bridrge

Floyd -- I hate cleaning Roids.  Especially when I can't.  Shucks! -- Custodian

Harry Potter -- What was that spell you threw at me?  Good thing I knew the counter.
Yes! -- Circle K

Almendras -- A few more like you and I could make Eagle. -- Life Scout

Vodi -- I wanted it!  But you wanted it more.  A salute to you.  Good luck in The Big
Time. -- Cracker Jacks

Slugbait!  All right!  Welcome back. -- Coach

A salute to the non-DM Column Duelmaster.  Well done.  For the feat.  Not for the
lack thereof. (wink) -- Coach and The Oldies

Contact Bridge -- Almost didn't get the job done.  Maybe I'll get you next time. --
Levi

Booluugy -- Not very nice.  My legs were just too weak to deal with your hits. --
Pierce

Aunty -- Not only frustrating but we didn't teach each other Jack. -- Basso

Custodian -- I'm sure that is not what I expected.  Maybe if you'd have used the mop
you would have beat me. -- Floyd

Jorja -- Good to be in another arena with you.  I'll try not to over challenge your
warriors since this is not one of my typical 4-24 warrior arenas. -- slugbait

Coach -- 1-1.  Looks like I needed to change arenas just to get a 50-50 record. --
slugbait

Bad Bad Basso -- That hurt.  Please don't ever do that again or I'll get angry.  You
wouldn't like me when I'm angry.  Trust me. -- Aunty Jack

Sigurd Fafnisbane -- Did that sound menacing enough? -- Aunty Jack

Aunty Jack -- I guess, but you do realise you'll have to perform now if you matchup
with him again? -- Sigurd Fafnisbane, mgr The Myrmidons

Sigurd -- Oh.  Darn. -- Aunty Jack

Persistant Beggar -- You certainly live up to your name, given both Barlden and I
fought you. -- Garken

     Though not a Beggar of any kind in my "day job," I do try. -- P. Beggar

Embezzling Scribe -- When will you ever learn?  You get caught, go to the arena.  You
survive your experience with me, then go embezzle some more, and go back to the
arena, to face Hector Pascals this time.  Sheesh, you need to change careers before
it is the end of you. -- Bomrex

     You are confusing me with my rival, Derzil.  *I* am no criminal.  I took this
     job in the arena because jobs are hard to come by these days. -- Sestin Korrow,
     official Embezzling Scribe

Life Scout -- We Girl Scouts are not so relentlessly competitive.  After all, there
IS more to life than "I have more badges than you do"! -- Rosana Sabel

Slugbait -- True, we are glad to see you return. -- Jorja

Our congratulations to Berthold. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Plus, we salute the non-participants in the tourney. -- Jorja again

Ben10 -- Oh, I do find you tall, elvish types devastating.  For a while; then I
realize that you couldn't live in a mine, and the bloom goes off. -- Rosana Sabel

Sven and Sanger -- You guys are so disappointing.  We'd have a better chance of
getting a personal from a standby. -- Sam Tall and Moris Nahr
P.S.  You can graduate any time.

Faber Castell -- I seem to have pencil marks all over my armor.  Weird. -- Petro Salm

Southbound -- Not a bad plan, during the winter.  But with the weather heating up,
I'm thinking... northbound for now, eh?  Maybe we should go together? -- Melanie
Obern
